Many hands make light work! Volunteering is the best way to get to know the students, parents, teachers, and staff of the Dolores Huerta community. No contribution of your time is too small, and there are many opportunities throughout the year. Check out some examples below.
The best way to find out about volunteer opportunities is to come to a PTA Meeting on the first Tuesday of any month. You should also sign up for all communications detailed on our Communications page. And you can always reach out to the PTA Board directly by emailing email@example.com, and they will gladly accept your offer to help.
At Dolores Huerta, we strive to have at least two room reps for every classroom, and it helps if at least one is bilingual. Some responsibilities of the room reps are:
- Maintain an updated list of contact information.
- Connect with the teacher at least once a week to find out about classroom needs and relevant communications, like field trips, volunteer opportunities, enrichment updates, etc.
- Connect with other parents at morning circle, after-school pick up, and online:
- Remind parents of events, volunteer opportunities, and more.
- Listen to parents’ questions and concerns. Try to find answers to their questions, and if appropriate, share their concerns with the administration, teacher, parent liaison, PTA, etc.
Help students arrive at school safely! Shifts are 30 minutes starting at 8:10am (20 minutes before school starts) and ending at 8:40am (10 minutes after school starts.) Email firstname.lastname@example.org to join the team.
