Volunteering at Hammond Elementary

The old proverb is right! It takes a village to raise a child and we need your support. Volunteering is easy and fun! Just follow these quick steps to volunteer:

STEP 2: Take the Volunteer Training and fill out appropriate forms

  1. HCPSS Volunteer Training - Sign certification form and send to front office.
  2. HES Volunteer Training - Watch this video
  3. HES Volunteer Training Confirmation Form - Enter name confirming you took the HES Training

STEP 3: Sign-up for opportunities listed on this site! That's it!

Special Volunteer Positions
Grade Level Coordinator (GLC) Positions

The grade level coordinator (GLC) is a HES PTA member responsible for coordinating grade-level events. Basically, the GLC makes sure grade-level events go smoothly. Grade-level events include Halloween Party, Valentine Party, teacher/paraeducator gifts, and End of Year Picnic. The GLC communicates needs for their grade to the volunteer coordinator for posting and attend 1 or 2 coordinator meetings. Interested? Send a quick email to Donnita Mennealy, Volunteer Coordinator (volunteer@hespta.org)

Team Parent Positions

The team parents are HES PTA members responsible for working together with their GLC for grade level events. While team parents won't be assigned to a single homeroom, team parents will make sure one or more homerooms' events go smoothly within a given grade. The biggest role for the team parent is to make sure their grade has what it needs for class celebrations, which are Halloween Party, Valentine Party, and End of Year Picnic. Interested? Send a quick email to Donnita Mennealy, Volunteer Coordinator (volunteer@hespta.org)

Volunteer for PTA Board Positions
If you are interested in volunteering for any of the PTA board positions, please contact Jennifer Beaverson, PTA President (president@hespta.org). HES PTA will start recruiting for our Executive Board and Committees in March 2018 for the 2018-19 school year. There will be lots of communication, but if you are interested in learning more now, please contact Jennifer Beaverson, PTA President (president@hespta.org).
