WSC Adopt a Tree: CW Families, sign up to adopt a few Cook-Wissahickon trees! Help with weeding and putting mulch around the trees bordering the CW schoolyard to prepare them for summer. It’s a fun activity that the family can do outside in the fresh air while practicing safe social distancing! Check out the link for all the details on how and when you can help out the Wissahickon Sustainability Council. Sign up here:

Cook-Wissahickon Schoolyard Cleanups: Meet-Up & Clean-Up from 8 to 10 am in the schoolyard on the following Saturday Mornings: 1/25, 2/8, 2/22, 3/7, and 3/21
Help us keep our schoolyard clean. Each of these dates (weather permitting), we’ll do a light grounds cleanup followed by time to enjoy the playground. The HSA and WSC will provide trash bags and gloves to volunteers. No need to RSVP. Just show up when you can, for whatever amount of time!

2019-2020 Library Volunteers: Thanks to the volunteers at West Philadelphia Alliance for Children (WePAC), the CW library is open:
• Thursday from 9:15-3:30pm for K-3, going with their classes.
• Tuesday from 11:00am-1:00pm for 4th to 8th.
The WePAC volunteers could use more help. And the more help they get, the better chance of more hours for the library to be open. Money raised from last year’s Book Fair funded $600 worth of new books for the library this year. Volunteers do need clearances. Contact for more information or visit the HSA office.

HSA Committees: We are also looking for volunteers for our Middle School Committee and our Fundraising Committee. Would you like to get involved? If you’re interested or want more information, email

2019-2020 Classroom Parents Program: Our Class Parent Program helps with so much, from organizing donations for the teachers, volunteering for field trips, and helping to increase parent involvement in our school – but we can’t do it without you! If you’re interested in signing up or learning more about the program, please email Ashley Rummelt at We’re looking for both Head Class Parents to help steer the program, as well as Supporting Class Parents who may have limited time but still would like to contribute. Whatever your capacity, we’d love to have you! Thank you for considering!
