We Need You!

Did you know that families with above-average parent involvement were 30% more successful in school than those with below average involvement?

(Quoted from A New Generation of Evidence: The Family is Critical to Student Achievement by Anne Henderson and Nancy Beria – *success was measured by GPA, test scores in math, science, reading and social studies; promotion/retention rates and teacher ratings)

So why not your child?  Why not you?
We have volunteer opportunities for all time commitments!

How does volunteering work at HB? Our PTO encourages every parent, grandparent, and any adult who is involved in a Hemby Bridge child’s life to volunteer.

Do I need to complete any forms to be allowed in the classroom?  YES. Each volunteer is required to complete a simple online form prior to volunteering at Hemby Bridge. For all applicants to the UCPS Volunteer program, please apply at https://www.ucps.k12.nc.us/Page/5863.

How do I get involved with volunteering in the classroom? We are using Signup Genius for volunteer opportunities. It’s a great online tool that will help streamline the volunteer process. Directions as follows:

*To sign up, go to Volunteer Signup 2018-2019.

*Click the “I am a Sign Up Genius” member” to login using the email address and password you created or click “I do not have a Signup Genius account” to create an account

Select the volunteer opportunities you would like to be notified of and *Click the “sign up now!” button

After you have selected the activities you want to join from the Signup Genius, you will be contacted by the Chairperson for that committee sometime in September. They will be able to provide specific and additional information regarding your activity.

NOTE: Signing up now does not lock you into volunteering with that activity.  It just gets you on the list to be notified.
