Current Opportunities

Library Volunteers

The library is staffed only one day a week, so we rely on parent volunteers do tasks such as helping during their child’s class time, shelving, reading level labeling, and running the spring book fair.

If you have an occasional hour to help out, or can volunteer on a more regular basis, please fill out this short form.

Help during school hours is particularly needed. If you’re interested in volunteering during your child’s class library time, please arrange it with the teacher, and then contact Rachel for training. For questions, please email Rachel Henderson (PTA library chairperson) at hardinglibrary@gmail.com.

A WCCUSD badge is required when volunteering in the library during school hours. Non-Harding siblings aren’t allowed on campus when volunteering during school hours.


Help Make Copies for the Wednesday Folders

Do you have some free time during the school day on Mondays? We’d love some help getting flyers copied for the Wednesday folders. The PTA is looking for 2-3 people who can share this job so no one has to copy every week. Most weeks this job takes about an hour. Please contact
hardingptapresident@gmail.com if you can help.

Volunteering is Easy!

If you want to assist with take-home projects, contact your teacher directly.  No other process is necessary.

For parents who want to volunteer in the classroom or around school, there are a few more steps to ensure the safety of our children, the District requires that you go through a background check and obtain a volunteer badge.

  • Parents need to have a District volunteer badge in order to volunteer in their child’s classroom, go on field trips, help in the library, etc.
  • The badges are good for many years and do not need to be renewed annually.
  • If you have a volunteer badge, please let your child’s classroom teacher know.
  • If you do not have a volunteer badge, please consider beginning that process as soon as possible.
  • Parents should start the process by visiting this web site OR calling (510) 307-4526.
