Volunteers

Parent Volunteers

Parent Volunteers are key to the success of our programs. Whether inside the classroom, participating in a school
event or working in the office, you can make a big difference in the lives of everyone here at Hilltop Elementary.

Welcome Volunteers!
We at Hilltop encourage all adults to be a part of our school. Every year we are required to process a Washington State Patrol Request for Criminal History Child/Adult Abuse Information before volunteers are allowed to supervisor children. Volunteers should download (below) a new Washington State Patrol Request for the current year. Please return this form to school prior to your first volunteer appointment.

 Communication is Key

More good volunteers have been lost because of poor communication than for any other reason. Please don’t let this happen to you! You are an important part of the educational team and are asked to cooperate with the school staff in the following ways:

· A school is a place of business. Please make a time commitment that is really workable for you.
· Please sign in and sign out each time you come to school.
· Please wear your volunteer badge whenever you are working in the school.
· Please discuss student problems only with the teacher with whom you are working.
· Please respect the confidentiality of anything you learn in the classroom. Children and their specific problems should not be discussed outside of school. Be professionally discreet. Never publicly discuss parents, children or professionals.
· Please communicate your concern if you find that your volunteer assignment is not working out. Talk it over with the teacher, the principal, or the office manager.
· Please realize that your relationship to school personnel requires respect and confidence.
· Please recognize that your volunteer contribution sets a fine example of an interested and informed citizen helping to improve the community.
