Volunteers

Volunteers are an essential part of making the school year successful and fun for our students.  We encourage all parents to participate in the education of our students by sharing their time and talents in the classroom, helping staff “behind the scenes,” and becoming involved in various fundraising and social activities.  Even the smallest contribution makes a difference in the overall quality of education for our students!  Many of the volunteer opportunities are flexible to meet the needs of your busy schedule.  Highland Elementary School counts on and appreciates help from our volunteers.  Please take a moment to read about the volunteer opportunities that are available to you throughout the school year!

If you have any questions regarding volunteer opportunities at Highland Elementary School, please contact our volunteer coordinators, DeeDee Melander or Stacy Kronberg.
