Volunteering

 “People Working Together” (PWT) is Hockinson School District’s non-profit parent/teacher association. Established in 1999, PWT supports the students, families and staff of Hockinson Heights Elementary (HHES) and Hockinson Middle Schools (HMS). With funds raised from numerous partnerships and events, PWT provides our schools with classroom grants, technological equipment, books and more. In addition, PWT also provides volunteer support for school-related activities throughout the year.   
Hockinson PWT relies on the support of dedicated volunteers and community partners. There are many opportunities to support PWT and our schools throughout the year. Click Here to be approved to volunteer at HSD Events.

Individuals must complete an online Volunteer Application before volunteering in our schools. 

Please Note: You do not need to fill out the auto insurance questions on the application unless you are a driver/coach.

  • For Coaches & Drivers:
    • Please fill out the volunteer application via How to be a School Volunteer,  you will put in your driver's insurance information on this form. Once approved you will be emailed a HSD Coach/Volunteer Driver Clearance Form to complete. You will receive an email letting you know if you have been approved or denied.
  • Just Visiting:
    • For school safety, HSD asks that all visitors check in at the school office. This check-in procedure allows staff to know who is in the building in case of an emergency.
