Jerissa Parkhurst

PSC President

I am humbled to serve as your president for the Parent Site Council for the 22-23 school year.  My family and I have been part of AACA since it opened in 2012. While my husband and I each own our own businesses, we have made raising our four kids (10th, 8tth, 6th, and 1st grades) our priority.  Almond Acres is our Central Coast family.  When the kids were little, we knew that they were so different from each other.  AACA has given them the opportunity to flourish into confident, smart kids.  As president, I want to help grow the AACA family, foster opportunities for the kids to grow, and ensure that teachers and staff feel supported.  I believe that we have a great responsibility to the future that begins with our actions today.  

Jenn Vock

PSC Vice President

Hello, my name is Jennifer Vock, and I am your PSC Vice President. My husband Skyler and I have two children here at AACA, Colby in 7th and Aiden in 1st. We have been an active part of the AACA family since 2017. I love being able to participate in the enrichment offered through the weekly Growing Great Families meetings and partnering with the staff and school through volunteer opportunities. This is my first year as a PSC board member and I look forward to helping grow the relationship between our school, our families, and our community. 

Brittany Thompson

PSC Secretary

Hello AACA Family! I am excited to serve on this year’s Parent Site Council as Secretary.  I am a Cal Poly Alumni, with a double Major in Wine and Viticulture and Agribusiness Marketing. After nearly two decades away from the Central Coast, I was finally able to move back with my husband, Caine, and our two children, Connor (1st grade @AACA) and Etta (future AACA student).   I run and manage my own business and absolutely love that we get to live and raise our kids in this wonderful community.  I am so grateful for the opportunity that AACA provides our kids and I look forward to serving the needs of our parents, faculty, students, and school. Gooo Kites!

Jacob & Katie Frederick

PSC Fundraising

We moved to the area in 2019 from Pasadena and have loved raising our family here. We have 4 children: Addie in kindergarten, Clementine age 4, Teddie age 2, and J.R. age 1. Katie comes from 7 years in a private elementary school setting. Jacob grew up in a household of nonprofit fundraisers. He currently works at Cintas, a National Uniform and Facility Service Provider. We believe that community involvement and support play a major role in the success of a school, knowing that the children we educate will be successful and proud leaders of their community in the future.

Emily Foster

PSC Spirit Wear

Hello, my name is Emily Foster, and I joined the PSC to serve as the School Spirit Officer. My family is fairly new to Paso Robles, but I grew up on the Central Coast and I am so happy to be back in this area! My husband Kyle and I have one child, Kaden, who joined AACA as a second grader. Kaden is now a happy 4th grader, and has enjoyed making many new friends and being part of the AACA community.  I am thrilled to be part of the PSC, with the goal of adding some more fun energy, spirit wear, and activities to our amazing school!  Goooo Kites!

Cassie Flores

PSC Participation

Hi AACA families! My name is Cassie Flores, although a lot of your kids probably know me as Miss Cassie or Coach Cassie. I am one of the support teachers at our wonderful school and coached our Middle School Girls’ Volleyball. I am your PSC Participation Officer and I’ve worked here for 3 years now. My son, who is now in 2nd grade, has been going here for 2. I fell in love with the community that is Almond Acres, and I can’t wait to see what else the future holds for us!

Sara Hughes

PSC Communications

Hi friends! My name is Sara Hughes PSC Communications Officer, I grew up on the central coast, and moved away for a bit but I couldn’t wait to get back! I live in Shandon on a little slice of heaven with my husband Bob, our son Will (2nd grade), and all our animals. My degree is in communications from Cal Poly Pomona and I have a Masters’s in Organizational Leadership with an emphasis in Servant Leadership from Gonzaga (GO ZAGS! If you’re a March madness fan, you feel my pain!) Servant leadership is primarily focused on the growth and well-being of people and the communities to which they belong. I believe strongly that we need to listen with the ear of our hearts. Which is why we chose AACA! We want to support growing great kids! AACA dedicates so much time to having TeRRiFiC citizens, positive thinking, encouraging and stretching them, and celebrating their success. Which is what makes our school so special.

What I hope to bring to PSC is support for parents AND faculty. I want to serve our school, parents, and our children.
