Volunteers from the parent body and from the community are crucial to creating Hilltown’s special multi-generational, cooperative environment. In addition to parents, our volunteers include students from nearby colleges, local artists, professionals and senior citizens.
Individuals who volunteer for 40 hours or more during the academic year become “voting members” of HCCPS and participate in selecting Board of Trustees members and making changes to the school’s by-laws at the Annual Meeting each May.
Please contact Deirdre Arthen, the Community Coordinator to volunteer or find out more.
