Volunteer at Armstrong

Why We 
Volunteer

Not only is volunteering a wonderful way to meet new friends, see your children, and engage with the school community, but also our volunteered hours and talents save the school hundreds of thousands of dollars. 

Volunteer
Opportunities

Armstrong needs you!  There are many opportunities to volunteer on-campus.  We also have volunteer opportunities that have ongoing shifts or one-time opportunities.

Recurring Volunteer Opportunities: 

Cafeteria

The Armstrong PTA has funded and operated the cafeteria since 1921. We need YOU to help us make the cafeteria successful and ensure our students have the best lunch experience possible. Our cafeteria volunteers save the district hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. Not only is volunteering in the cafeteria important to our school financially and physically, but it is also one of the most fun ways to engage with other parents and see the smiles light up your children's faces when they see you helping in their school. 

 

Please join our long standing tradition of cafeteria volunteer service by volunteering as a server or cashier in the cafeteria! We need every family to volunteer in the cafeteria at least once a month! Check the CAFETERIA page to learn more and sign up to Volunteer.

 

Alice's Garden

                         Come Garden with the kids in Armstrong's Alice's Garden! Alice's Garden was established in                                  2013 as the first garden program in HPISD. Since then, the twice-monthly garden classes have                                become a cherished part of the Armstrong experience. Our Master Gardeners, Caroline Trotman                            and Jana Beth Eidson, develop age-appropriate lesson plans from Junior Master Gardener material and help the children experience the joy and wonder of a garden and nature.  Volunteers play a big role in the success of our garden program! We request one parent from each class attend the volunteer shift. The shift is 1.5--2 hours, and the commitment is for the entire shift; not just the 30 minutes during which your child is in the garden.  Questions? Contact Candace Hines, Garden Volunteer Coordinator. Sign-up link coming soon!

 

​​​Teacher Workroom

Serve a two hour shift once a month in the teacher workroom to help teachers make copies, staple, cut out bulletin board images, make flashcards,  laminate, and several other helpful projects.​​

Check back in September to sign up to Volunteer in the Teacher Workroom. Questions? Contact Julia Voliva and Ashley Smetko, Teacher Workroom Chairs.

Classroom Volunteer Opportunities: 

For each classroom, there are two room parents.  They serve as  liaisons between the teacher and classroom parents.  If you are interested in being a Room Parent, look for the sign-up form in BSSU or contact the Room Parent Coordinator. Spend time in your student's classroom interacting with their teacher and friends! Volunteer opportunities include coordinating class parties, parent reader, and more.  Click Here to check for opportunities in specific classes. 

Event Volunteer Opportunities: Carnival, Field Day, Auction, Bike Rodeo, and more! Coordinated by Event Chair(s). Check the EVENTS page to sign up.
