Help PTO

Thank you for your interest in joining Hickory Creek Elementary PTO!

By joining PTO you are entitled to vote on issues that affect our school.  You will receive our PTO newsletters and emails which have lots of great information about events and volunteer opportunities. It's a great way to stay informed.

Membership is FREE. We love volunteers, but joining PTO does not mean you are obligated to volunteer, it's just a great way to stay connected to HCE! We look forward to working with you this year.

***If you were a member of PTO last year, please renew your membership and make sure to update your information.***

If you are a staff member of HCE and have children that attend our school, please join under the HCE Staff option. You will receive communications for parent and staff-related PTO communications.

Requirements to Volunteer

You must be an approved volunteer within the St. Johns County system to come into our school.

This includes any of the following:

  • Lunch with your child
  • Field trips
  • Helping teachers with a class celebration
  • Volunteering in the classroom

CLICK HERE to get started! Please make sure you include your first, middle, and last name on the application.


Why do I need to submit this form?

The county requires that you submit your name for an official background check conducted by the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office and the National Sexual Offenders Database.


Did I already do this?

Your background check is good for 3 years.

If you have done this for another St. Johns County school within the last 3 years, you do NOT need to resubmit. However, you will need to email the Volunteer Coordinator, so you can be added to Hickory Creek Elementary.


Volunteer to Proctor

If you wish to proctor, or have already signed up to do so, please take a few minutes to read through the training: Proctor Responsibilities

Thank you in advance for your assistance!
