Parent Volunteering

We have had a “parent volunteer” organization in the past but this basically boils down to formality.  We consider middle school a little less formal than elementary schools in terms of parent involvement.  As long as parents have been cleared through our background checks/volunteer training, they’re always more than welcome to join us at school to help out. 

Here is information on how you can volunteer for our schools and have a background check processed: Parent must fill out a background check form for Vicki Faulkner at the Community Education Center (red brick building beside the high school). Ms. Faulkner can also email the form to you or to a school, and you can fill it out and send it back to her. Here is her email address: vicki.faulkner@harrison.kyschools.us. Ms. Faulkner is even willing to help you fill the form out over the phone if you can't make it to the Community Education center during working hours or if you live out of the county. After the background check is submitted, and the results return and you are cleared, she will add your name to the master volunteer list. It can take from one day to 2 weeks to get the background check back. That list is sent to every principal, secretary and all sports coaches. There is  no cost for the volunteer, the district pays the fee. 

Below are some of the main areas where we can really use parent help.  In all cases, you can contact: (Mr. McIntire- Michael.mcintire@harrison.kyschools.us ) or Donna Williams (school bookkeeper- donna.williams@harrison.kyschools.us) to help volunteer.

  1. - Parents to help with our 9-week Honor Roll parties.  Parents help serve the “treats” for
      recipients on the day we reward students.  Our first will be the week after fall break in
      October.

  2. - Parents to help make copies in the copier room for teachers.

  3. - Parents to help coordinate other parents to help recognize our teachers through meals,
      dessert days, etc.

  4. - ANY 8th grade parent who wishes to coordinate the end-of-year 8th grade dance…this is
      BIG and school administration does NOT coordinate/plan/oversee any of this.  Parents of
      8th graders- You want a dance for your kids at the end of the year?  It is up to you to plan
      and coordinate.

-Boxtops for Education

Every year we reward the honor roll students with parties at the end of each nine (9) weeks.  We usually have an ice cream party, donut party, and pizza party during the year.  We have also used the money for other student rewards as needed.  The money generated goes into the Parent/Volunteer Organization at our school.

The class in each grade who turns in the most labels will win a pizza/drink party at the end of each drive. There are two drives during the year.  One will begin October 1 and end October 26.  The other will begin February 1 and end February 22.  There will be announcements at the beginning of each drive to remind students to start turning in labels.

This year, our goal is to raise $1000 for student rewards. Here are three easy ways you can help:
