Thank you for volunteering at Harvey Clarke Elementary!
Welcome to Harvey Clarke Elementary School, home of the Harvey Clarke Pioneers. We believe in the importance of the parent-teacher team and encourage you to become actively involved in your child’s school.
This information has been created for parents and staff as a resource for easier communication and involvement. You will see there are many ways to help support your school and your child’s education through volunteering.

If you are an INTEL employee, the school receives matching funds for your volunteer time. Please be sure to note your affiliation on the volunteer interest form.

Thank you for everything you do to support your child and all the students and staff at Harvey Clarke Elementary!
Background Checks
Annual background checks are required for all volunteers in the Forest Grove School District. This includes, but is not limited to, classroom volunteers and field trip chaperones.

The volunteer background checks are part of our efforts to keep schools safe for students, staff and visitors. We encourage all prospective volunteers to go to the link below to fill out the criminal background verification form online. There is no cost to the volunteer, and all information provided remains confidential. Individuals will not be permitted to volunteer until their background check has been approved.

The conviction of a crime does not automatically disqualify a person from volunteering in a school. Each situation is considered individually.

We appreciate all of our dedicated volunteers in the Forest Grove School District. Together, we can create a safe environment where students learn and thrive!
