Volunteering

Help make this school year a huge success and volunteer! There are many fun volunteer opportunities throughout the year, big and small, that will fit your schedule and make a big difference in our children’s lives.

BHE would not be the outstanding school it is today without the time spent by parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, generous hearts and you.  WE NEED YOU!

Training

All BHE volunteers must complete a brief  “principals’ training” session and sign a confidentiality agreement.  You may either view the training PowerPoint online or attend a 30-minute in-person training session with Mrs. Achtermann.  For returning volunteers who’ve done the principal’s training and have a signed confidentiality agreement on file at the school, you do not need to repeat the training.

Background Checks

All BHE volunteers who will be in contact with children must complete a background check.  Background checks are good for 3 years.  If you’re a new volunteer or haven’t done a background check in the past 3 years, please click the link and follow the directions below.  It’s quick and easy!
