Help make this school year a huge success and volunteer! There are many fun volunteer opportunities throughout the year, big and small, that will fit your schedule and make a big difference in our children’s lives.

BHE would not be the outstanding school it is today without the time spent by parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, generous hearts and you. WE NEED YOU!

Background Checks

All BHE volunteers who will be in contact with children must complete a background check. Background checks are good for one year. If you’re a new volunteer or haven’t done a background check in the current school year, please click the link and follow the directions below. It’s quick and easy!
