Staffing your Event

Need more helpers? Here are some tips for finding volunteers for your event:

  • Get a list from the PTO cochairs of people who signed up in the volunteer survey.
  • When you’ve worked through that list, if you still need more, you can submit a blurb for the weekly emails (see Sending Email to the Community) and a highlight on the PTO web site Home page and under Get Involved (see Updating Events on the PTO Web Site).
  • If you still need volunteers, work through the room parents. Ask the PTO co-chairs to distribute your request directly to the room parents, who will pass it along to the parents in their class for more of a personal appeal.
  • You can also post a plea to the Douglas Facebook group, but remember that not all Douglas families are represented on Facebook–don’t neglect the above communications channels.
