The Arbor Height PTA is pleased to continue the Hawkeyes program for the 2019-20 school year! We are excited to continue to strengthen our Arbor Heights school-family connection through a classroom-based parent support network.
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. It will be important to have a meeting early in the year to discuss the teacher’s needs.
- 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.
