Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are a crucial part to making children's education a success. There are many different opportunities for you to partner with Harrison Lane. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or a community member- you can volunteer.

To become a volunteer in Public schools, log on to VIPS. Follow the directions to register as a volunteer and complete a background check. This must be done before anyone can volunteer with children. Once you become a volunteer, be sure to log your hours on the VIPS website. For additional information contact the Harrison Lane VIPS coordinator, Shana Sinisi at shanasinisi@hebisd.edu

Once you have registered with VIPS please print and fill out a Volunteer Form and return to the front office.

Gardening Workday

Volunteers Needed! Come and go between 8:00am-12:00pm (children will be in school for the make up day). Parents are encouraged to give as much time as possible to prepare the garden for our students to plant in! Contact Elizabeth Bailey-Land at tx_nelb@yahoo.comfor more information.

Family Fun Picnic and Carnival- Volunteers Needed!

This year the carnival and picnic will be held on Friday, May 21. All parents are welcome to attend and volunteer. All games will be FREE to Harrison Lane students along with opportunities to win prizes! Volunteers will be needed during the day to help run the games.

Harrison Lane Elementary Garden Club

The Garden Club is looking for parents, students, and faculty members who would like to help us plant flowers, shrubs, etc. and maintain the beauty of the garden at Harrison Lane Elementary in a safe, environmentally friendly way. Garden work days are scheduled for October and April, but help is welcome throughout the year. We will be working in the garden during school hours and on an occasional Saturday as needed. No green thumb required! If you are interested in volunteering with the Garden Club please contact PTA Environmental Vice President Elizabeth Land-Bailey at tx_nelb@yahoo.com
