Volunteers help organize and run the book fair held in the fall.
Committee members coordinate charitable drives each year and assist with delivery of donations. In the fall, we have two drives: a food collection for the Atlanta Food Bank and a Christmas gift drive for a local shelter that serves children. In the spring, we have two drives: a collection of new and gently used housewares for the International Rescue Committee and a school supply drive for needy children at Morningside Elementary and Springdale Park Elementary.
Volunteers host luncheons for our wonderful staff during the school year. During these luncheons, teachers receive important ongoing education and training. The volunteer group also coordinates teacher appreciation gifts and bonuses. This volunteer opportunity is ongoing throughout the year.
Room parents are important assets to our teachers, helping with activities throughout the year. The room parent works with the teacher to make arrangements for drivers for field trips and coordinates other parent volunteers for parties throughout the year. Room parents may also assist in contacting the class parents regarding the many other activities at Haygood. This volunteer opportunity is ongoing throughout the year.
Mardi Gras Pancake Breakfast
Volunteers help cook and serve the pancake breakfast in the Fellowship Hall. This delicious event occurs on Fat Tuesday.
Volunteers plan the graduation gala and reception. They create the programs, decorate the room and plan the big party. This event occurs the end of the school year.
Volunteers will plan the reception that follows the End-of-Year Program on the last day of school. This event is similar to the Family Open House. We need at least two chairpersons and approximately 20 volunteers to bring food and paper products for this event, which takes place in May.
