Parent Volunteer Opportunities


Chick-fil-a Bingo

The Bulldog Dad's will host Chick-fii-a Bingo night. Please plan to attend with your CT student(s) for a fun-filled night of CFA, bingo, popcorn and PRIZES!

Staff Appreciation

During November conferences, the PTO arranges a Staff Appreciation Dinner. Parents can donate money for a catered meal for the CT Staff. 



Every other year our major fundraising event for the school is the Auction. We are reaching out to parent volunteers to help make this event a success!


CT Beautification (year round)

The Charlestown Courtyard was created in memory of a young Charlestown student who was tragically killed in an accident. Over the years, trees, bushes, a bench and birdfeeders have been added to the family’s loving gift of a white statue of a little girl, in memory of Bernadette Faggioli. This committee will weed and plant as needed in the Courtyard and the school entrance.

Library Volunteer (ongoing)

Parent volunteers are needed to assist the librarian with simple tasks such as shelving books. Emails will be sent out monthly to solicit volunteers.


Specials Volunteer (Art, Gym, Music) Volunteer as needed

Family Ambassador (ongoing)

Newcomers are encouraged to attend the New Family Orientation held just before the start of the school year. This event will allow you and your children to tour the school and ask questions of current students and parents at Charlestown. In addition, newcomers are invited to join our PTO Board for coffee and conversation in September. 

Our Ambassador’s Chairperson, Bethanie Spangler, is an invaluable resource and is available to guide all new families.


Classroom Volunteers (ongoing)

Parents will be invited to volunteer for classroom parties, events, special projects, field trips etc. Your classroom Lead Parents will email the class when these opportunities arise. 



Submit your clearances to the district


Parents are a vital part of making a child’s school experience positive and successful! 

We greatly appreciate any and all volunteers. If you are new to volunteering, it’s helpful to know that many activities and events take less time than one may expect. It is a great way to learn more about Charlestown, meet other parents, and have fun! Be sure to visit the school district volunteer page to understand more about what you need to do before you get involved.
