Conn PTA is 100% volunteer run. Everything we do happens because someone like you donated their time and talent to support our CONNmUNITY!

There are endless possibilities in ways you can help as a volunteer, and the Conn PTA can match your time constraints and interests to needed tasks. If you're not sure where to start, please email our Volunteer Committee Chair, Michelle, at volunteer@connpta.org. Thank you!

1. You must be approved by WCPSS to engage with Conn students as a volunteer. The application involves passing criminal history and sexual offender registry checks. All volunteers must comply with WCPSS Board Policy 5020: Visitors to the School. Please note that the application process may take a few weeks to complete and must be renewed every school year. You will be notified by the MyVolunteer system when you have been approved. If you are unsure of your status, please email Ms. Seward at skseward@wcpss.net. Start your WCPSS application here!
