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.

Parents are needed to help set-up, monitor and direct traffic and parking and help ensure a great event.
Grandparents (or special friends) will be invited to the school 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.
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!
Parents are needed Monday through Friday from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm to serve lunch to all students participating in the lunch programs.
There will be several music programs throughout the year. Volunteers will be needed to help secure props and set-up for the events.
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!
Volunteers are needed to collect and organize “gently used clothes” and help with the Uniform Closet Sale during the year.
