Important volunteer opportunities

We are all very busy – especially now that our students are in high school. But parents play a very important part in making Heritage the great school that it is. Your help, even a small amount of time, provides countless events, opportunities, and support for our children. When you donate a little bit of your time, you are ensuring the continued community feel that makes Heritage High School stand out. Thank you for being a part of the vital Heritage community! Here are ways you can support our school:

Accountability Committee (HAC) School improvements at the school level are achieved through the process of school-centered decision making. Successful goals in education are the result of careful planning. The purpose of the Heritage High School Accountability Committee is to work collaboratively to improve student achievement and school climate and safety. The work of the committee is in compliance with state accountability requirements and district policy. Meetings are generally held the second Tuesday of each month from 4 to 6 p.m.

PTO This organization made up of parents, teachers, and staff serve the school and community in numerous activities, events, and support throughout the school year.

Everyone is welcome. The Board consists of President Kristi Lucas, Executive Official Stacey Riendeau, President-Elect – , Secretary – , Treasurer – Andrea Harry, VIPS Coordinator _, and Past President Julie TenEyck.

Post-Grad Center  Parents, get the inside track on preparing your child for their lives after high school. Learn about educational options, financial aid, gap years, and the world of work. Become a volunteer in the Heritage High School Post Grad Center for the next school year. If you are interested in helping students plan their future, this is the opportunity for you. Our volunteers are fully trained, work one day a week for 2 ½ to 3 hours, and make a tremendous difference in the lives of our students. If you are interested please check the Post Grad box on the volunteer form which is included in your summer check-in packet.

Sport Booster Clubs While parents are not required to join the various booster clubs associated with athletic and student-sponsored groups, it is through strong parental participation and donations that we are able to provide the high quality of programs that we do. We would therefore encourage every parent to become active in their respective booster groups here at Heritage. If you aren’t sure if your group has a booster club, please contact the sponsor or coach to find out.
