Parent Association

The Parent Community: It Takes a Village…


Children perceive the importance of school life through our involvement. Supporting our children’s education through volunteering helps build a strong school community, and allows us opportunities to get to know one another better. Parents are invited and expected to participate as much as possible in school-wide events, committees or areas of service each year, including taking one shift at each of our two yearly fairs.

The Parent Association: Many Hands Make Light Work

There are two elements of parent involvement at HWS. At the class level, there is the Shared Responsibility Model. This model allows families of each class to prepare for and share the class tasks throughout the school year. Parents commit to their class-level roles at the first class meeting, in September (PA Rep and Treasurer roles are filled in advance).
