Volunteer Opportunities

Due to COVID-19: Our staff is reimagining ways in which parents can volunteer their time in support of Birchwood School of Hawken and our students and teachers.

Birchwood School of Hawken parents and grandparents have the opportunity to volunteer throughout the year with many projects and special events including:

  • In the classroom helping teachers with events
  • At the International Festival
  • On school field trips as bus chaperones
  • Assisting children and teachers select books at the Book Fair
  • At the Birchwood 5K 
  • During Open Houses, Poetry Show, Sharing Show, and more 
Each family is required to perform at least five hours of volunteer service to the school each year. It is simple to look over the many volunteer opportunities offered in SignUpGenius. Plus, check the Birchwood News email each Tuesday for timely volunteer links to sign up to share your time with the Birchwood community. 

If a family is unable to fulfill their five-hour volunteer commitment, they may pay $250 in lieu of their time. To learn more, please contact the Parents Association at volunteer@birchwoodschool.org.

Volunteering is such a wonderful way to support my child, while giving back to the school that is providing so much in terms of academic growth and character development.
