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. We are working on making volunteering more accessible to everyone who has time and talents to share.

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, and we’ll let you know when something comes up! Please check back at this page for updates.

The PTSA has volunteer openings to lead and support many programs this school year:

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.

* Second Grade: Mr. Musser, Ms. Dorje

Are You Fluent in Another Language?

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.
