Volunteering


Your help and creativity make things happen for our community! Find upcoming PTO event sign-ups and volunteer opportunities here. 

 

CORI Checks: Every person who volunteers in school needs to be CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information) checked. Bring your ID/driver's license and the last six digits of your Social Security number to the Main Office. You will need to fill out a short form. Allow time for your CORI information to be submitted for processing, at least several days in advance of your volunteer commitments.

 

Once completed, your CORI check is valid for three years.

EVENTS  

We always need volunteers at PTO events to help with set-up/clean-up and to help supervise games and activities. These are often short, half-hour shifts, and kids are almost always welcome to help their volunteering adult with their task.

 

If you are planning to attend an event and won't have your hands full with child supervision or other factors (we get it: sometimes you just can't!), please consider signing up for a shift!
