Heritage Elementary School runs smoothly because of the collaborative efforts of its administration, staff and volunteers. One of the most visible volunteers in the school is the PTA volunteer, but we have lots of other dedicated HES community members too and each one makes a difference!

Every month countless volunteers spend hundreds of volunteer hours both in the school, away on field trips and at home doing a variety of activities, fundraisers and projects that enhance the learning, social and physical environment of HES.
It is for this reason that the HES PTA would like to recognize one of our outstanding volunteers each month to thank them for all of their hard work and contributions to HES.

Parents, teachers, and staff … this is always a difficult decision, so we need your help — it’s hard to choose just one!
Please take a moment to consider the parent(s) whom you would most like to recognize for their contributions to Heritage Elementary School as volunteers.

Get Involved at HES!

Heritage Elementary School PTA Volunteer Opportunities
We have many opportunities for parents to volunteer and make a difference at the school. There are ways to help even if you work full time or have younger children in your care. If you only have 1 hour for the entire year we can still use your help!!  We will take any amount of time you can give.  If you would like to volunteer, please fill out the form below with your preferences. All volunteers must complete the Wake County online volunteer application process to become an approved volunteer at the start of every school year. The application must be completed at school using a computer in the Computer Lab. By checking boxes on the list below you will be added to a distribution list for these activities and you will be contacted via email with additional details.

*Approved Guest speakers and parents coming to school to eat lunch with their children do not need to be registered as volunteers.

Thank You for all of your help and support!  We could not be a successful organization without our volunteers!!
