The Bedford Parent Teacher Group, in partnership with the district, coordinates and fulfills volunteer needs within our schools. Annually the PTG logs close to 20,000 volunteer hours district wide. All six Bedford Schools have received the Blue Ribbon Award for volunteer excellence from New Hampshire Partners in Education for many years.

The Bedford School District’s highly successful volunteer program has been active for more than 40 years! Parents and family members help in many different ways to enrich our students’ learning. Volunteers dedicate their time and talents to assist during and after school, as well as from home. There is something to fit everyone’s schedule.

If you are interested in volunteering regularly or occasionally, helping from home, dropping off needed food or supplies for events, or you just want to learn about upcoming ways to be involved simply fill out a Volunteer Form for each of the schools you have children at. You can help with the tasks or events that interest you and fit your schedule.

School Policy:

All volunteers are under the supervision of the building principal and are immediately responsible to the classroom staff member with whom the volunteer is assigned. If a volunteer has a question about school policies or procedures, it should be discussed with the appropriate school personnel and not outside the school.  Volunteers should feel free to discuss concerns with the classroom teacher or principal.

Suggested Guidelines For Volunteers:

  • Sign in at the office upon entering and leaving the school when volunteering.
  • Wear a volunteer name tag at all times while in the building.
  • Record all hours volunteered whether in or out of the buildings.
  • Keep volunteer appointments and be prompt.
  • If a volunteer appointment cannot be kept, the proper person should be notified as far in advance as possible or a replacement should be found.
  • A volunteer’s work is confidential.  Students should not be discussed with anyone except the appropriate school personnel.
