The PTO will continue the Teacher Assistance Program to help teachers and staff with clerical work so they can focus on instructional time during the school day. This program is designed to promote and maintain a supportive relationship with teachers and school staff.
Volunteers may be asked to do clerical tasks such as copying instructional materials, assembling distributions, mounting artwork, shelving books, hanging projects, binding, laminating, stapling, or cutting for interactive notebooks. No prior experience is necessary, as there are some current volunteers that are happy to train and ensure that new volunteers are comfortable with the work. Please note that some staff members utilize this program often/consistently and some do not, so if you do not get called upon by your child’s homeroom teacher to help out occasionally, there are other staff members that may contact you. Clearances are needed for all volunteers that are assisting teachers in school during school hours. Whether you are able to volunteer every week, or once in a while, for an hour, we welcome your help. Your efforts will be greatly appreciated.
Please note that one of the responsibilities of the Homeroom Helpers this year will be to participate in this program. If you decide to become a Homeroom Helper, your name will automatically be added to the master list.
If you are interested in volunteering for the Teacher Assistance Program, please include the following information in an email to Amanda Kovach (email@example.com) no later than Wednesday, September 6th. We will compile a master list of volunteers with the below information to distribute to the Hartwood teachers and staff. They will reference the list and contact you if/when they are in need of assistance.
1. Volunteer’s name
2. Best way for Hartwood staff member to contact you (phone number or email address)
3. Day(s) you are able to volunteer (AM or PM)
