The Herndon Elementary PTA is made up of volunteers who are willing to contribute some of their time to plan and support the events and programs at the school.
We are always looking for new volunteers to get involved with our events, so please look at the list below and contact Nicole Wickenheiser, VP of Volunteers, HerndonPTAVolunteers@gmail.com if you would like to help!
These are just some of the ways that you can get involved with the PTA right now.

Book Fair Committee/Co-Chairperson: Organizes the Scholastic Fair in the Fall and Spring. Coordinate team of volunteers. This is a heavy commitment volunteer position during both weeks of the bookfairs. Responsibilities include coordinating with Scholastic, recruiting and managing volunteers and maintaining cash registers and depositing all monies received.
School Supplies Coordinator: Do you love the convenience of being able to order your students’ school supplies? We need someone who is willing to make that happen! A lot of the background/prep work has already been done for this; we just someone willing to take it on. If you have appreciated this service in the past, please consider volunteering!
Whoo’s Reading Fundraiser Committee: Coordinates fundraiser with administration and teachers, deposits donations with the PTA Treasurer, tracks progress and arranges for prizes for winners.
Spirit Nights: This committee works with local restaurants to sponsor a “Herndon Elementary Night.” As an exchange to promote the event, Herndon Elementary will receive a portion of the proceeds for that evening. These events are usually held quarterly. Volunteers are needed to coordinate with local restaurants and promote events through flyers, e-mail, Herndon TV, etc.
Robot Tomato Fundraiser: Looking for volunteers to help spearhead this new Spring potted vegetable and herb sale.
Rough&Tumble 1K: This obstacle-course run will take place entirely on the school grounds, and the chairpersons will be working with the owners Old Dominion Racing (http://www.olddominionracing.com/) who are helping to organize the event. The school grounds and fields have all been reserved for the event to be held on the morning of Saturday, April 21, 2018. This is a great opportunity to help with a school event that gets our students and community excited about health and fitness!
Before & After School Enrichment Club Coordinator & Volunteers: Before & after school classes may actually be the one time during the day that a child gets to choose what they would like to learn or to be exposed to something that would not normally be available to them.
The expected time commitment is approximately 4-6 hours per session, half of which you should be able to do from home. Copy and send flyers home twice per session. Pick up payments from the office and fill out deposit form and leave for the PTA Treasurer. Email all parents a registration acknowledgement and any relevant class information about changes to the schedule, such as closings. Notify teacher(s) and office staff of class roster.
