SIGN UP ONLINE Our preferred method for event volunteer signups is online. Annunciation Catholic School utilizes SignUpGenius to register our volunteers and plan events. The link to these events is available in this catalog, online, and will also be emailed to families prior to the events.

WHY DOES ACS ENCOURAGE SERVICE? Our model of Catholic Education teaches students that true leaders are also service-minded. A community focused on service and volunteerism is a healthy place for families to learn and grow! As you serve, you will see that the smiles and fun moments keep you motivated and excited about our faith. Families are required to complete and log 20 hours of service each year. Students in grades 6-8 are also required to complete a total of 20 hours (5 hours per quarter). “Crossing the threshold of faith means that we work out of a sense of dignity and see service as a vocation. It means we serve selflessly and are prepared to begin over time and time again without giving in to weariness — as if all that has been done so far were only a step on the journey toward the Kingdom, the fullness of life.” ― Pope Francis, Only Love Can Save Us: Letters, Homilies, and Talks of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio
