Parents Welcome. Alumni Too.


Ancona is strong because of the hundreds of volunteers who partner with us in critical areas. Whatever time you contribute will leave you with a better understanding of our learning community and the magic that takes place at the Ancona School.

From the officers of the Board of Trustees to camping trip chaperones to room parents, volunteers contribute thousands of hours to The Ancona School every year.

Please take the time to look at the many opportunities to share your time and talent, and support a new generation of learners at Ancona.

About the Award
The Barbara Harelik Award was established in 1996 and honors a volunteer’s consistent pattern of commitment in two or more significant areas of school life over a number of years. The award is given in memory of Barbara Harelik who, with her husband Norm, was a tireless volunteer and dedicated supporter of Ancona from 1989 until her untimely passing in 1996.

About the Reception
The Barbara Harelik Award Reception is an opportunity for all parents, teachers and trustees to recognize the efforts of one exceptional volunteer, and show our gratitude to all of our school’s champion volunteers. At the end of each school year, the Ancona community reflects on another year of growth and celebrates the time and effort of all the dedicated volunteers who make every day at Ancona special.
