Volunteer Opportunities

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

  • In the classroom helping teachers with events.
  • Helping at the International Festival.
  • On school field trips as bus chaperones.
  • Helping children and teachers select books at the Book Fair.
  • Helping at the Birchwood 5K. 
  • Helping at our Open House events, 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. Please check the latest Birchwood News for timely volunteer links. 

If a family is unable to fulfill their five-hour volunteer commitment, they may pay $250 in lieu of their time.

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.
