Volunteer Opportunities

We Need Your Help!

Everything we do is reliant on the volunteers who give their time. We have opportunities both big and small. Remember, if you aren’t able to sign up for a specific task, your voice is always welcomed at our monthly PTO meetings, held the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 6:30pm in the Library Media Center.

 

Everyone in our school community is automatically a member of the PTO, and we welcome your voice. There are many ways to volunteer. Please see current, upcoming and ongoing opportunites below.

 

Another way to look at specific roles we need filled can be found HERE.  We have some vital roles vacant, and we rely entirely on volunteers! Please be in touch at prez@vanhisepto.org with questions.

2024 Dance

Please join us and sign up for a shift to help make our all school dance a success. 

The school dance is scheduled to take place from 6-8 pm on Friday, February 23rd. We are looking for volunteers to work in 1-hour shifts throughout the dance, as well as to help with set up and clean up. 

Please contact prez@vanhisepto.org with any questions. 

Carnival Committees

The VHE Carnival is BACK!  We are so excited to have this much loved event taking place.  The 2024 Carnival will be Friday, April 26 from 4:30pm - 7:30pm. This is such a fun and wonderful event, but it takes a lot of volunteers to make it happen.  We are currently looking for volunteers to lead our various carnival committtees.  

Food, Prizes, Games, Facility Maintenance/Floaters, Raffle

For questions please contact Adam Gratch at adamjgratch@gmail.com.

Nominating Committee

The PTO is run entirely by volunteers.  We are looking to form a nominating committee to fill some key roles on the PTO board that are vacant or will soon be vacant.  Please come to the general PTO meeting to express interest or email Prez@vanhisepto.org.  Thank you for considering this important role!

Playground and Lunch Volunteers (Ongoing)

The PTO helps out with extra eyes and hands on the playground and in the lunch room. Consider volunteering for a 30 minute time slot. Volunteers check in at the office and receive a vest before starting their shift.

Playground/Lunch

Class Reps (Ongoing)

Are you looking for a way to help out our amazing VHE teachers and your child’s class? We need 2 reps for EACH class to:

  • Help coordinate families for teacher/staff appreciation and other support activities (e.g. group gifts)

  • Help with parent communication (send occasional emails)

  • Facilitate social opportunities for students and classroom families

  • Attend PTO meetings and share important info with classroom families (as able)

Classroom reps are the glue that helps our classroom communities stick together. It’s a great way to get to know your teacher and the other families in the class. There is flexibility to do what works best for you and we give you support to make it easy and rewarding. Plus, it’s always more fun with a partner!                                                          

 

Estimated time commitment: 1-3 hours per month. Grandparents and other adult family members welcome! Email our PTO class rep coordinator at andrea@lordolson.us with questions!
