The Arbor Height PTA is pleased to continue the Hawkeyes program for the 2020-21 school year! We are excited to continue to strengthen our Arbor Heights school-family connection through a classroom-based parent support network.
In this new teaching platform, the role of the Hawkeye may look different from class to class. It will be important to work with your teacher to find out what the needs are and how best to support her or him.
What is a “Hawkeye”, you ask? Here’s a high-level look at how the Hawkeyes help the school and its students!
- A Hawkeye works with their student’s teacher to learn what that is needed in terms of volunteer support, allowing the teacher to focus on instruction.
- A Hawkeye serves as liaison between the PTA and the classroom, forwarding information regarding projects, events, and volunteer needs.
- A Hawkeye is a communicator and coordinator who informs families from their child’s classroom about teacher needs and helps coordinate volunteers on behalf of the teacher.
- A Hawkeye does not need to be present in the classroom during the school day.
Interested in putting your efforts to work as a Hawkeye? Here’s what to expect.
- You will be in contact with your child’s classroom teacher. The amount of contact will vary according to grade level and time of year.
- You will be contacted by the PTA when there are events that need volunteers. This will also vary according to time of year.
- There can be more than one Hawkeye per classroom.
- You will be supported by the PTA’s Hawkeye coordinator to help answer any questions you may have.
If you are interested in becoming a Hawkeye or would like more information, please email this year’s Hawkeye coordinator Monique Tetzloff at HawkeyesAHPTA@gmail.com.
