WHS Parent Volunteer Opportunities

Wellesley High School needs you. Be a part of the action and volunteer! Regardless of whether you can share a lot of your time or just a little, there is a way for you to get involved! Volunteering is a great way to support our students and our school while meaningfully engaging with others in our community.


We currently have a few open committee chair positions, listed below. In addition, we always welcome volunteers to become involved with our school-wide committees, also listed. Complete our volunteer form at the bottom of this page, or reach out to the committee chairs.

Class Activities:  Volunteers chaperone or supply food & beverage for various grade level social events.
9th Grade Class Activities Chair: Jennifer O'Shea

10th Grade Class Activities Chair: Melinda Arias-Voci  

11th Grade Class Activities Chair: Anne Horn

Community Hospitality:  Volunteers assist with the Welcome Coffee, Back to School Night, and Seminar Day.  Contacts: Lisa Collins or Johanna Murray

Faculty Appreciation:  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: Lisa Fico

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.

Contacts: Susan Calcio and Susan Bannon

New Parent Ambassador Program Working with the Guidance Department, the goal is to help new families become familiar with the WHS community as well as school practices, policies and procedures.
