PACE Volunteer Opportunities

Can you believe we are in the home stretch of our school year at CVCS? We have some exciting events planned to finish out this school with great success! Please click on the links below to view the volunteer opportunities.

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week and Basket of Blessings: April 29–May 3

We have the opportunity to bless our teachers and staff all week long! The week will include such activities as Basket of Blessings, Teacher and Staff Appreciation Lunch and encouraging Teacher grams.

  • Basket of Blessings: This is our way of giving back to our wonderful teachers and staff who do so much for all of us. Please take this opportunity to bless them and truly show your appreciation for their hard work. Here are some examples of items that can be donated to the teacher/staff baskets: gift cards, baked goods, favorite books/music, summer beach necessities, candles, picture frames, etc. If your gift is for a specific staff member/teacher, please label it appropriately.
      • Elementary: Baskets will be organized by a class parent and you will receive communication from that person. Collections will begin April 10 and are due by April 26. Baskets will be presented in class on May 1.
      • Elementary Pull-Out Teachers: These items will be collected either in the classroom or in collection bins in the front office. Volunteers will combine all items into baskets on May 1.
      • Jr. High/High School: Baskets will be assembled on the morning of May 1 and delivered that day by volunteers. All donated items need to be clearly labeled and placed in bins located in the front office, Mr. Kloostra’s classroom (RM 144), and Mrs. McDowell’s classroom (RM 208).
  • Teacher Appreciation Lunch: A catered lunch will be provided for all teachers and staff on May 1.  Sign up to help:

Flight Crew Golf Tournament: May 6 at Arroyo Trabuco Country Club 12 noon shotgun start

The fun-filled day will begin with breakfast burritos and a putting contest. Then, at the sound of a shotgun, golfers will set out for a round of golf where each participant will find tacos, cold beverages and lots of opportunities to win awesome prizes.  After the last ball lands in the cup, we will reconvene at the clubhouse for cocktails, dinner, and tournament awards. Want to Play? Sign up:  Rather keep your golf balls in the bag and soak in some vitamin D? Sign up to volunteer:
