Dear Hoover Parents,

We all know for a school to be the best, it needs Involved Parents. And there is nothing better than Involved Parents to show your little ones, how much you care about them, however busy you are in today's fast paced world.

We, at Hoover welcome any amount of time you are willing to spare for volunteering. There is always something for someone to help out with.

Volunteering is a priceless gift, not just to your child, but also to the school community.

We request you to please consider Volunteering the suggested 10 hours, from the list of activities mentioned below in the Interest Sheet. This sheet will give you an idea of the various volunteering options that are available for the whole school year and will let you decide where you would like to help out.

There is a brief one liner explaining the requirements against most activities.

This is not the event sign-up sheet. That will be sent out closer to event date, by the various Event Leads (and we will also reach out to you then, if you did sign up for volunteering for the same event in this sheet).

If you want to volunteer for other different things or have ideas to share, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.

Happy Volunteering!

Many Thanks,

Indira Selvakumaraswamy

Volunteer Coordinator
