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!!
