HES needs you to volunteer! There are many opportunities to help out at HES–chaperoning field trips, monitoring the lunch room, and math and reading tutoring, to name a few. To offer your help, directly contact your child’s teacher, or Ms. Penate.
All volunteers need to get a background check and be cleared by Child Protective Services (CPS). There are several upcoming opportunities to do this. Mark your calendars to get this done so that you can help your child’s school!
