WHS Parent Volunteer Opportunities
Wellesley High School needs you. Be a part of the action and volunteer to help out! Complete the volunteer form at the bottom of this page, or reach out to the committee chairs as noted below. Feel free to contact any chair with your questions.
Class Activities Committees: Volunteers chaperon or supply food & beverage for various grade level social events.
9th Grade Class Activities Chair Anne Horn
10th Grade Class Activities Chair Eunice Groark
11th Grade Class Activities Chair Anne Marie Gross
12th Grade Class Activities Chair Lori Goldenthal
Community Hospitality Committee: Volunteers contact families who are new to town or to WHS shortly before their child starts school. Volunteers offer information, advice, assistance with the transition, and a friendly person to call upon. Volunteers also assist with the Welcome Coffee, Back to School Night, and Seminar Day. Contact Lisa Collins or Deb Berger.
Faculty Appreciation Committee: This committee plans and implements the four major teacher social events of the year. Volunteers staff or supply food for these events. Many volunteers keep the load light for all! Contact Susan Morris, Susan Fontana or Cindy Malloy.
Faculty Monthly Meetings: Support our school’s faculty by providing food and drinks for the Faculty Monthly Meetings, usually held the second Thursday of the month. Volunteers contribute as often as is convenient at the volunteers’ discretion. Many hands make light work. Volunteers receive a sign-up genius one week prior to the event, and then must drop off their chosen item at WHS by 2pm of the specified day. Contact Susan Calcio, or Meghan Murray.
New Parent Ambassador: Working with the Guidance Department, volunteers help coordinate and facilitate ongoing parent workshops with families new to WHS. The goal is to help these new families become familiar with school practices, policies and procedures. Contact PTSO presidents at email@example.com.
Landscaping Committee: Green thumbs not required! Landscaping volunteers make a difference at WHS. The gardens not only bring beauty but also provide multiple opportunities to integrate and enhance learning for our students in the fields of science, business, the arts, and more. Whatever you can do, from small jobs to larger ones, it will be appreciated! Contact Colleen Conroy.
Library Liaison: Volunteers assist with various projects and events in the Library as needed. The liaison will reach out when help is requested and will coordinate dates and times with librarians and volunteers. Contact: Linda Messore.
Nominating Committee: Help recruit volunteers and find opportunities for parents who want to get involved. Nominating chairs assess PTSO committee relevance or redundancy. The majority of activity occurs between March and the end of the school year. Contacts: Christine Mizzi & Maria Chase.
Challenge Success: Help bring joy to our students! Volunteers needed for easy “show up anD share support” events including hot chocolate by the “fire”, Barn Babies, pizza, popsicles, smarties and play for students during exams. Contact: Chris Cavallerano.
