Just 2 Hours


If we can get every Connection Pointe Christian Academy parent to commit Just 2 Hours to helping out, we can do amazing things for our kids and our school.


Will you please take the 2 Hour Involvement Pledge?


We’ve started using a program called 2 Hour Power that emphasizes that all help, any help makes a huge difference for schools. The research is so clear – kids at schools with a broad base of involved parents perform markedly better on all kinds of key school measures.


On the first day of school Students will come home with the Survey & Pledge Form. We’d love to help you get involved in any way that works for your schedule and interests. What would you like to do? When would you like to do it? We’d like to work with you to make sure all parents can pitch in. Involvement is for everyone.


We’d love your 2 Hours, and --Really! We promise! – there’s no obligation beyond helping out in this small, but important way. If you’d like to do more – great, but we know that’s not a fit for everyone.


Participating in our 2 Hour Power program is easy. Simply complete the en Interest Survey & Pledge Form and return it to school with your child. We’ll then be in touch with opportunities that fit your interests and availability.


Together, we can make a huge difference at our school! As always, please feel free to call or email if you have any questions or concerns.
