Get Involved — Volunteer! 


The PTSA Volunteer Program is one of the best ways that community members can support the students and staff at our school.


If you are volunteering at school, even if not in the classroom, you will need to be an approved district volunteer.  Instructions on how to do this can be found here


Please note: if you are on a PTSA committee, volunteering as a lead or director, you also need to be current Alcott PTSA member.  Become (or renew) your membership here

We are in immediate need of the following: 


Nomination Committee Members: A three person elected committee that works find officers for 2023-24 Alcott Elementary Board of Directors.  This is an essential and important job as well as a fabulous way to meet people, connect with the school and learn more about the PTSA.  Limited time commitment, as once elections are held (usually in April) your responsibility is over. Email to learn more. 


Financial Review Committee Members:  Three person committee that meets two times a year (February and July/August) for about 3 hours to review the PTSA finances and records. No experience necessary.  Wonderful position for parents who may work full-time and would like to help but have limited time.  

Email to learn more. 


Website Lead: This position works closely with other board members and leads to keep our website up to date. No website experience necessary. Strong communication or writing skills helpful. Email to learn more.


Event Leads:  We love events. The PTSA has funds designated to support events.  We just need help with planning and organizing. Grab a friend, or three, make a committee, and help us hold some community events at Alcott this spring.  Email for ways that you can help. 


Scholastic Book Fair Cashiers: Kids love the book fair and a portion of the proceeds goes directly back to Alcott's library.  Help us provide plenty of opportunities for families to shop the book fair and support our school.  Sign up here.  


You can also check out available volunteer opportunities by clicking a category below. Your contact information will then be forwarded to the PTA board member or committee chair that is pulling together that activity and they will be in touch with you.


Thank you!
