Opportunities for Participation

Parent Volunteers: The support of our parent volunteers can take many forms, such as assisting with classroom activities, working on projects in the main office, helping in the cafeteria at breakfast or lunchtime, or providing extra supervision at recess. Teachers call on parents when they need field trip chaperones or special assistance for a classroom project. Parents also help out at PTA Family Nights, the Spring Carnival and other special events. While volunteer schedules are set at the beginning of each school year, parents may contact the school at any time to offer their assistance. Your help will always be appreciated!

Class Parents: Each class has two or more Class Parents who serve as liaisons for the PTA to the classroom teacher and other parents, helping to coordinate classroom volunteers and supporting the teacher as necessary. Class Parents also help to create the WHA Family Directory, and coordinate phone and email trees to facilitate communication among the families in each class.
