Heights High Orientation: The renovated Heights High will open for student orientation/schedule pick-up on Aug. 15 and 16. While several elements of the school are located in the same place as before, much of the building is different. The school district wants to ensure that students feel prepared and comfortable on the first day of school, Aug. 21, and seeks community volunteers to help direct students and families as they walk through their schedules from 4 to 7 p.m. on Aug. 15 and 16. Volunteers will stand at specific locations in the building (with a map) and assist students as they locate classrooms on their schedule. Volunteer training will take place at 3:30 p.m. each day. Contact Joy Henderson, the district’s liaison for parents and community, at email@example.com if you can help.
Heights Music Hop: Volunteers are needed for the fifth annual Heights Music Hop, which is presented by FutureHeights and takes place Thursday, Sept. 7; Friday, Sept. 8; and Saturday, Sept. 9. Volunteers will help staff music venues, canvass the district with maps, answer attendee questions and assist with musician check-in. Not only is this a fun opportunity, but volunteers will receive a Heights Music Hop shirt, snacks, and a FREE raffle ticket ($10 value) in the FutureHeights Chance Raffle, which features fabulous prizes from area businesses! Volunteer here.
Heights Observer: FutureHeights publishes the Heights Observer and delivers it throughout Cleveland Heights and University Heights on or around the first of every month. Volunteers are needed to assist with deliveries to local businesses and institutions. The September issue publishes on Friday, Sept. 1, and volunteers are needed between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on that day to assist with delivery. Most routes take about an hour to complete. For more information, contact Sruti Basu at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the FutureHeights office at 216-320-1423.
