Volunteer Survey

Volunteer Survey

Welcome to the Douglas Elementary School PTO Volunteer Survey for the 2018-2019 school year!
  • Volunteers are an integral part of our school and an essential element in the functioning of many programs and activities at Douglas School. As you go through this survey, please check all areas that interest your family. We appreciate your willingness to help the school and will make every effort to help you serve on the committees of your choice. If you have any questions or find additional free time during the year to volunteer, the list of committee chairs for each activity or event will be included in the Douglas School Directory and on the PTO website.

    You only need to do this survey ONE time, no matter how many children you have at Douglas.

    Your name will be passed along to the coordinators of all jobs you check off in the survey. If you’re at all interested in a volunteer job, go ahead and check it off; we understand that things change, so you’ll have the option to decline later. Please feel encouraged to reach out directly to the committee chairs if you have not heard back about committee job you would like to volunteer for.


    If you have questions about the Douglas volunteer survey, please contact us at ctdouglasvolunteers@gmail.com.

    Thank you, and welcome to Douglas for the upcoming school year!
  • All volunteers need to have a CORI form on file with the central office. We recommend that both parents/guardians fill out CORI forms.. You can obtain blank CORI forms from the Douglas school office. You must have a valid picture ID (such as a drivers license) for Sharen Crooks in the school office to check at the time you submit your CORI form. If you have not submitted a CORI form with the proper identification, you will not be allowed to volunteer in the school. Please call the school office if you have any questions. Note that we are in the third year of our three-year CORI cycle. If you have submitted for renewal in 2015, your CORI will be valid until 2018. The renewal process will begin in February, 2018. If you have volunteered for a position in the past and would like to continue this year or have indicated over the spring/summer that you are willing to start a volunteer position, please REPEAT that information in this survey. This allows our volunteer committee to gather complete information. Thank you. Activities are listed in categories: ongoing/periodic volunteer opportunities, one-time volunteer opportunities, and work-at-home volunteer opportunities. Please note we have indicated the approximate time of year each activity takes place, when applicable, to help you with your scheduling. We have also indicated if a volunteer position works well with younger siblings by including “*Younger siblings welcome” in the description. THANK YOU for all of your support of Douglas School!
  • This is the information we will use to match you to the school's database.

    You'd be surprised how many times we need all three pieces of information below to figure out who filled out the survey -- so thanks for helping us out by providing this information!
  • (If you don't have this, you can leave blank but fill in the next two boxes.)
  • Please provide this as a backup even if you have the ID number from PowerSchool.
  • Use the proper name, not a nickname (e.g., "Charles" not "Chuck").
  • Sometimes the Douglas Office has trouble finding parents in the CORI database if the CORI form is under a different name than we have in PowerSchool. If your last name is hyphenated or has several possible forms, please list them here to help us determine your CORI status. Also, if either parent has a nickname that might be in PowerSchool or the CORI database, please list it here.

  • Volunteer Opportunities

    Please check off boxes of jobs that you are interested in. This is not necessarily a commitment.
  • Conant Elementary will no longer join in our Akiko Sensei Festival of Cultures. (New families: this was an annual festival celebrating our cultural diversity that included informational tables about countries, an international pot luck, and performances by our kids. It was held at the Jr. High.) We need your input whether you’re interested to see a similar Festival of Cultures organized for Douglas alone, or another smaller event to celebrate our cultural diversity.
  • Assist students with selecting and checking out books during your child's class. Help with routine shelving and other tasks anytime during the school day. Coordinators prepare schedules for class volunteers. Please indicate here that you are willing to volunteer for library if scheduling allows; the library staff will let you know when your child's class has library. (The library schedule is not available yet.)

  • This hands-on parent driven program needs people to lead or shepherd small groups of children on nature walks three times during the year for about 60 minutes. Enthusiasm is all that is needed! Training for fall walks takes place in early October. Please indicate here your interest in assisting with nature walks in your child’s class. Help with as many walks as your schedule will allow. Also, please consider serving as the walk schedule coordinator for your child’s classroom--a job that does not require coming into the school.
