HSA Volunteer Sign Up
Garnet Valley Elementary Home & School Association is grateful for the volunteers who plan & prepare the many programs and events each school year to help provide the best school experience possible for our children. The HSA relies on volunteers to run smoothly, so if you can help just a little, it will make a BIG difference! Many of our volunteers find that they receive something in return for their time and talents:
• Spending quality time with your child and friends
• Investing your time in bettering our school community
• Making a difference in your child’s life by sharing your knowledge, experience and skills
• Developing leadership, communication and organizational skills
• Having FUN and making new friends!
At GVES we have a Committee for each program/event we do. The committee works as a team to plan and execute their event with the help of additional volunteers. One individual will be designated as the committee lead . The committee lead will be responsible for coordinating meetings, ensuring the committee is on schedule and communicating directly with the HSA Board. Each committee will also have volunteers to assist with the event as needed (i.e. volunteer during book fair, help assemble flyers, monitor mileage club). To sign up as a volunteer be sure to select "General Help" at the end of the survey.
Please sign up for as many committee opportunities as you are interested in. After you complete the committee portion you will be asked about being a committee lead. If you have students in multiple schools please note the time frame of events when signing up. Opportunities include Board positions, committee chairs, committee members, and event volunteers. We will contact you prior to the beginning of next school year. Please reply by June 7, 2019. Thank you.
