Oh, and you don't need to be a member of the PTA to volunteer (although we would love to have you!). The PTA is just helping our school by coordinating all volunteer opportunities in one place.

STEP 2: Take the Volunteer Training and fill out appropriate forms
A. HCPSS Volunteer Training - Sign certification form and send to front office.

C. HES Volunteer Training Confirmation Form - Enter name in form 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 responsible for coordinating grade level events. This includes working with teachers, helping team parents who are executing the events as well as communicating information and/or needs to the volunteer coordinator for a given grade throughout the school year. The GLC will have a major role for coordinating events that require grade level participation like Halloween Party, Valentine Party, teacher/paraeducator gifts, and End of Year Picnic. Interested? Check “Grade Level Coordinator” in Volunteer Interest Form.
Team Parent Positions
The team parents are 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 all homeroom/grade level events go smoothly within a given grade. The team parents will have a major role in coordinating the events like Halloween Party, Valentine Party, and End of Year Picnic. Interested? Check “Team Parent” in the Volunteer Interest Form.
