Our parent volunteers at Douglass Elementary are extremely valued and important. There are numerous opportunities throughout the year to participate in your child’s education by helping in the class room; chaperoning field trips; in the library, computer lab or art room and numerous PTO sponsored events.

If you are interested in volunteering for school and PTO activities, please go to: Help at School

to see available volunteer opportunities or you can contact the PTO’s volunteer coordinator at volunteercoordinator@douglasselementarypto.org
Most in classroom volunteers are coordinated through your student's classroom teacher.

Creating a Help at School Account

The Douglass PTO uses HelpAtSchool.org as our one-stop-shop for parent volunteer opportunities, access to a school directory and information on school events.

Here's how registration works: go to https://bvsd.helpatschools.com/schools/34/session/new/new. Follow the instruction on the site to confirm your registration- (you must be an enrolled BVSD family to have access)

Once you create an account visit the Sign-Up page to see the volunteer opportunities!
