From baking brownies at home to working in the school library, volunteering opportunities at Hamilton are abundant and vary from one-time jobs, to on-going commitments. Volunteering is a GREAT way to support your student and connect with the Hamilton community.

If you plan to volunteer at Hamilton in a way that will have you working directly with students (not all jobs will), please complete the following Volunteer Requirements, and return all forms to Hamilton’s front office. If you have questions about this process, please email Hamilton Volunteer Coordinator, Trina Torgelson at kltorgelson@seattleschools.org.

Current Volunteer Needs

A number of this year’s Board members will return to their positions next year, which will give the Board much-needed stability and institutional memory, but a healthy board is one with a wide variety of perspectives. If you're interested in learning more, please contact himssecretary@gmail.com for more information. Note: any of the positions can be shared by 2 individuals.

•      Secretary – Responsible for maintaining the non-financial records of the organization, and takes minutes at the monthly PTSA Board meeting and at the 3 annual general membership meetings. The Secretary is a member of the board’s executive committee and helps to provide leadership and direction to the organization.
