Volunteer in Classroom
In addition to the new process of signing in via the Raptor system and presenting your state ID when visiting the school, any person looking to volunteer with children in any capacity is required to fill out a volunteer application and attend volunteer training. Training is only required once, and the school provides an opportunity for training multiple times throughout the year.
Hilton Herons meet in the cafeteria at 9AM on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month. These volunteers do odd jobs for the teachers to make their jobs easier.
Various programs throughout the year require parent volunteers to make them a success. Usually, a sign up genius link is sent out via email to those who have signed up for the PTA email list and on Facebook.
