Earning Parent Volunteer Hours

Parent involvement has been the key to the continued success of the students at Arabia Mountain High School. Each year Arabia Mountain High School parents/guardians must complete 10 hours of volunteer service hours each year to maintain enrollment at AMHS. Parents can volunteer at the school or school events to earn their volunteer hours or provide donations of $105.00 ($10.50 = 1 volunteer hour).


It is the responsibility of the coach/sponsor of the organization to provide the list of their parent volunteers and hours to Ms. Bills at the conclusion season or event. Parents need to be sure they are signing in at all events to ensure an accurate account of their volunteer hours. Please click the file below to see some of the ways you can earn your volunteer hours. We look forward to seeing you at AMHS!!!!
