Home > Support Hancock > Volunteering Opportunities

There are many opportunities to become involved at HDS with enough flexibility to fit any schedule. Volunteering not only enhances "The Hancock Way" for our children, it also offers you the opportunity to meet other parents and experience a sense of community. We look forward to working with you and thank you for your support.

Parents will have a chance to sign up for grade-specific activities in the fall.

Spring Auction
Volunteers are needed for solicitation of auction items, ticket sales, event set-up, registration, monitoring bidding, checkout, etc. This event is a great fund-raiser for our school, but it takes a lot of helping hands to make it a success!

Athletic Committee
Volunteers are needed to help the Athletic Committee. Volunteers are needed to help mange and staff the concession stands at athletic events, help sell spirit items at school events and help with fundraising projects.

Book Fair
Parents are needed to help set-up and staff the bookstore during this week.

Box Tops
Volunteers are needed to coordinate the collection and counting of Box Tops twice a year.

Faculty Appreciation & Support
Parents will provide staffing and refreshments to support the faculty throughout the year. Volunteers can help with conference day lunches, appreciation luncheons, meeting refreshments, or covering the staff for extended stay during monthly meetings.

Field Day
Fun and friendly class competitions will take place on April 23rd, and parents are needed to help set-up, monitor and direct traffic and parking and help ensure a great event.

Grandparents' Day
This fall grandparents (or special friend) will be invited to the school on the morning of Friday, September 25th in order to see their grandchild(ren)'s classroom(s), meet the teachers and observe the wonderful atmosphere on the Hancock Day School campus. We will need volunteers to bring refreshments, greet grandparents and act as tour guides.

Last Minute Volunteers
Often volunteers are needed for various unexpected purposes.

Library Volunteers
Parents needed to periodically staff the library in order to assist with properly checking out books and reshelving them. This job is fun and a great way to get to know a lot of the students!

Lunch Volunteers
Parents are needed on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm to serve lunch to all students participating in the lunch programs.

Music Programs
There will be several music programs throughout the year. Volunteers will be needed to help secure props and set-up for the events.

Admission Previews
Volunteers will be needed to greet visitors, and tour prospective students and their families around the campus during Admission Previews. Refreshments will be needed as well. Parent involvement really helps prospective families feel welcome!

Pediatric Rehabilitation Unit at Memorial Hospital
Volunteers are needed to select a theme for our Christmas tree at Memorial Hospital and coordinate Hancock students in making/decorating the ornaments. The committee will also be responsible for coordinating the gifts that each class will be collecting for the children at Memorial. The committee will assist Mrs. Brown in delivering the gifts and decorating the tree.

Uniform Closet
Volunteers are needed to collect and organize "gently used clothes" and help with the Uniform Closet Sale during the year.

Hancock Day School is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. All gifts are tax-deductible.
