VOLUNTEER 

“If our hopes of building a better and safer world are to become more than wishful thinking, we will need the engagement of volunteers more than ever.” — Kofi Annan

Get involved!  There are many way to get involved.  HPC is run entirely by parent volunteers and is responsible for sending out important communications, organizing parent volunteers, providing essential student services, and raising valuable funds to support our children’s school experience.  There are many ways to get involved, and whatever your interest, skill or availability there is a place for you.

If you are interested in any of these positions and committee support, please email havensparentboard@gmail.com or sign up here.  If none of these positions appeal to you and you want to help in another way, please email us too!  

 

During the school year, volunteers will be needed for events such as hearing and vision screening and picture day; be on the look out for volunteer requests via Board communication and Havens Highlights.  You can also help in the classroom as teachers will need volunteers in the classroom and drivers on field trips (once parents are allowed in the classroom).  There are lots of ways to volunteer and we are so grateful for your time and energy.  

VOLUNTEER AS CLASSROOM PARENT

Currently, the only on campus volunteer opportunity!  It's really fun to see to your kids in action.  Highly recommend!

SCHOOL LUNCH

Our school lunch program is parent volunteer operated.  This year we need 1 volunteer each day to help our amazing Health Clerk Kristen Huey serve lunch.  The shift is 11:30-12:45.  We are happy to have 2 volunteers per day, if you still prefer to serve lunch with a friend.  Parents, grandparents, and caregivers are all welcome to volunteer, and you may also bring a younger child with you so that you do not need to find childcare to participate.  Lunch volunteering is currently the only opportunity parents have to be on campus.  It is also super fun and a great way to get to know the kids at school!  Please sign up HERE.

 

If you have any questions, please email Katie Castles Shaffer at Havenshotlunch@gmail.com
