How to Help

Supporting Students, Families, and Staff of the Arbor Heights Community

Our dedicated and active parent community is one of the many reasons Arbor Heights is such a special place for our children. There are numerous ways to support the mission, whether it’s directly with the school or through the PTSA.


We are always seeking volunteers to lend their skills, talents, and time – in ways both big and small – during the school day and/or after school hours. Below are examples of opportunities:

  • Hawkeyes – Parents can support their children’s classes directly by serving as a Hawkeye where they can work directly with classroom teachers to address their specific needs.
  • Fundraising Committee – We’re planning for a fundraising event in the spring. Whether you can lend your skills with planning the event or procuring potential sponsors or auction items, any help makes a difference.
  • Family Outreach: There are many families that are new to our community each year. We are always looking to help network families together to help answer any questions.
  • General Meeting Presenters: We’re always on the lookout for interesting topics to share during our general PTSA meetings. You can bring your subject matter expertise (or even just a suggestion) to share with our families.

Not all volunteering has to be an official position. Even if it’s something as simple as helping making signs for an assembly or picking up some classroom snacks, every little bit counts.

The PTSA derives its funding through donations. We raise funds primarily through our Direct Drive held in the fall and through an additional fundraiser in the spring. Links to how to contribute through these campaigns will be added to the site as we get closer.
