Volunteer Opportunties

Are you looking to be more involved but not sure how?

Hazel Wolf K-8 PTSA wants to make sure every community member knows how to get involved and feels welcome. There are volunteer roles with varying lengths of commitment and different locations (can be done at home or at school). If you don’t see something that fits, let us know what skills you’d like to share. Contact us at info@hazelwolfk8.org

CLASSROOM PARENT REPS: Reps act as the bridge for communication between the teacher/PTSA and parents. Also, the rep helps the teacher organize class parties, supports teacher appreciation efforts and organizes the classroom auction item. If you would like to help out, please email homeroomrep@hazelwolfk8.org. The following classes still need a rep:
* 8th Grade homeroom rep

LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE MEMBERS: Do you have an interest in State and District policy issues affecting our school community? We are looking for folks that can help track issues, share updates and meet to develop some priorities and ideas.

BOX TOPS FUNDRAISING LEAD: We have two parents who have been volunteering for this job and they are stepping down after this year, so it would be great to get a new volunteer to train with them and to get up to speed on how this program works.

If you are interested or have questions about this role, please contact Kelli at fundraising@hazelwolfk8.org.

In an effort to better support our ELL community, the PTSA is making an effort to get as much of our information translated as possible, and we sure could use your help! We are looking to create a group of volunteer translators that will be able to choose from online lists of prioritized documents at will. The four main languages spoken in our program right now are Amharic, Somali, Spanish and Chinese.

Please help us in better supporting and including all of our families in our awesome events and programs!

If you are interested in being a part of this group, please contact our Neighborhood Outreach Coordinator at neighborhood@hazelwolfk8.org.
