How to Get Involved

One of the best to ways for parents to support the school is to be actively involved in the FoHCS.  

If you are interested in contributing, please contact the FoHCS leadership directly (email friendsofhcs @ No time contribution is too small and we have opportunities to volunteer that can accommodate any level of commitment you can make.

We need your support to make HCS the best place it can be for all our children. HCS is a small school and each person's contribution is welcome and valuable.

Participate In The FoHCS Gala and Auction

The Gala is the biggest party of the year for HCS parents. The Auction typically includes awesome goods (memorabilia), services (spa treatments), and experiences (vacations) donated by HCS parents and the Hoboken community...and anyone can bid!

All funds raised go to the FoHCS for the benefit of HCS.

We rely on this event for 35-50% of our annual fundraising target. We will need volunteers to help lead the 2023 event, and will be reviewing venues and dates over the summer.

Volunteer To Plan, Lead, Or Help With Other Events

Throughout the school year, there will be various Kids Events (Halloween Party), Parents Socials (Moms'/Dads' Night Out), and Fundraisers (Spirit Sale) that need leading/coordination. Each event offers a great time with friends and family, and, collectively, these activities result in important funds for HCS. BUT,  just as important as money, we need volunteers to plan and run the events and no amount of time is too little!!

Volunteer To Be A Class Parent

Class Parents help socialize updates and coordinate participation in events and fundraisers from other parents in their classes, and are a critical communications channel through WhatsApp for the FoHCS and the school.
