Volunteer Opportunities

Are you interested in getting involved? The PTO relies on the incredible work of parent and family volunteers and have volunteer opportunities to fit everyone’s schedules and talents. Many things can even be done at home or during off-hours. Even just an hour of your time makes a huge difference and is so appreciated.

Volunteer opportunities are not limited to parents. Grandparents and other family members are welcome to be involved!

If you’re interested in volunteering, please complete and send us the Volunteer Outreach Form or email us at walterjpatonpto@gmail.com.


When we are able to volunteer in the schools or with the children again, all school volunteers must complete a Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) form before volunteering. Having a completed CORI on file is required to volunteer for class parties, reading to students, field trips, and field day.

If you haven’t filled out a CORI form yet, please see Mrs. Lapierre in the main office or visit the Shrewsbury Public Schools website.

The CORI check process can take a few weeks but are valid for three years. CORI checks completed in another town or for town sports do not apply to Shrewsbury Public Schools. Please see Mrs. Lapierre in the main office to confirm your CORI status if you are unsure.
