Volunteer

One of reasons Homestead is so incredible is because of its remarkable volunteers. Please help us continue the tradition this school year by volunteering – there are many opportunities to choose from!  

Year-Long, Ongoing Support

  • Art: photograph artwork to publish on Artsonia, framing, hanging and taking down artwork throughout the school, helping the art room by prepping materials, assisting with Fine Arts Night in May.
  • Music: support our music teacher with various needs throughout the year including choir, and if you are a parent of a 2nd or 4th grader, help prepare for the grade level musicals in January and April. 
    • Please contact the following people if you would like to volunteer or if you have questions:
  • Library: assist with processing and shelving books – no experience necessary!  Many volunteers are also needed at our three Book Fairs in November, February and May (volunteers get a discount!). 
    • Interested in volunteering?  Contact the Library Volunteer Coordinator, Fran Baumgardner at fstigliano@gmail.com
  • STEAM:  Our STEAM teacher, Mrs.Fischbach,  is in need of some supplies for her STEAM class!  If you would like to contribute, some items the classes could use include: clorox wipes, pink erasers, glue sticks, Google cardboard & old iPhones IOS 9 or better. Please note that the iphones and Google cardboard will be used for the students to create their own AR and/or VR experiences.  The iphones and Google cardboard would be for school use and not returned.  To drop off the requested items, please leave them at the front office with a note that it is for STEAM.   Kindergarten & 1st Grade Parents:  Classroom volunteers are needed to help kids log on to their computers during STEAM class.  If you would like to help, please sign up here:  VOLUNTEER
