Opportunities for Parent and Community Involvement

Parents are an important part of the Alvey community. Parents are invited to join the PTO which meets monthly and plans many presentations and activities for students. Parents are also invited to join the Advisory Council which meets the second Tuesday of every month to work with the principal planning for the school. Each of these organizations has its own page on the Alvey website with more details.

Parents and community members are invited to volunteer in the school. There are many opportunities to help in the office or to work with students as instructional volunteers. We truly appreciate our Alvey volunteers and honor them with a special luncheon at the end of the year. Their contributions are invaluable.

What Makes Our School Unique?

J. W. Alvey Elementary has a history of community service. Following the tsunami that devastated many of the countries bordering the Indian Ocean in 2004, a fifth grade class wanted to help the affected people. Their desire to help blossomed into Alvey's first Walk-a-thon in which Alvey students raised over $26,000 to donate to the Red Cross to aid tsunami victims. As a result of our second Walk-a-thon in 2005, our students raised money to purchase a car for a family displaced by Hurricane Katrina. The following year, our students donated to the building of the Pentagon Memorial, and as a result, our Singing Sunrays chorus group was invited to perform at the dedication of the Memorial. Other groups our students have helped are the American Heart Association, Barn Transition Housing, the Rainbow Riding Center, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the Boys and Girls Club of Manassas, and the Food Bank. At Alvey, we not only believe that it is important teach state standards, but also to teach the importance of community service.
