Volunteering at HIMS

Volunteers are the Heart of Hamilton

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 call the main office at 206.252.5810 for information!


Current Volunteer Needs

PTSA Budget Committee

Thanks to generous donors like you, the PTSA brought in over $100,000 this school year, and hopes to do so again next year. Want to know where all that money's going?  Be part of the team that shapes next year's PTSA budget!

The PTSA is seeking members to serve on the PTSA Budget Committee. This committee — made up of Hamilton parents, staff, and PTSA board members — will review expenses for the programs and events that have occurred in 2016–2017, evaluate new budgetary requests, and make recommendations to the Board regarding the makeup of next year's budget. 

The committee is expected to meet twice (in May; dates TBD) for a total of about 4 hours. PTSA Co-Treasurer Chappell Barber will chair the meetings. Please contact Chappell at chappellwescoat@hotmail.com if you are interested in volunteering.


8th Grade Dance

They look forward to it all year, so help us make the 8th Grade Dance a night of memories for our outgoing class.

The Hamilton International 8th Grade Dance will be the evening of Friday, May 19 and needs lots of volunteers to help make it happen. Please sign-up at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f45aaaf29aaf58-hamilton

Also, please let us know if you are part of a business or service that would like to donate something (food, photo booth, decorations, etc.) for the big night.

For more information, contact PTSA 8th Grade Liaison Amanda Myerson at amandamyerson@gmail.com.


8th Grade Promotion Reception

Help us send off our 8th graders in style! We're looking for volunteers who can help with decorations and refreshments at the reception that immediately follows the Promotion ceremony (Friday, June 23). Responsibilities include purchasing food and drinks (you will be reimbursed), purchasing decorations and supplies (balloons, tableclothes, etc.), set-up, serving, and clean-up. Taking all non-8th grade parent volunteers (because 8th grade parents should enjoy the reception, not work at it!). To volunteer, email PTSA President Lisa Rivera Smith at lisarsmith@live.com.
