Volunteer

Thanks to everybody for signing up when we ask for your help – from our Event Coordinators to our Cornell Crew — we couldn’t do it without you!

 

We need to have volunteers to make our programs run, AND it's a fun way to connect with others! There are so many different ways you can get involved with the PTA and volunteer. There are a range of roles and time commitments, and we're sure there is something for anyone who'd like to contribute their time or talents!

Room Parents

Room Parents are vital community contributors who build bridges for parents and students to the greater Cornell community. This bridge is even more important during the 2020-2021 virtual school year, where the absence of a physical location necessitates stronger communication and more creative ways to build a sense of community and “place” for our students. Learn more about room parents and how to sign up.

 

Walk & Roll To School

Help plan and support this awesome event that encourages walking, riding and scooting to school on 10/6. It's great for the environment and good fun too!

 

Pumpkin Patch

Help plan and promote our annual fall pumpkin patch fundraiser! This is an easy one- Westbrae provides the pumpkins and we spread the message.

 

Book Fair

Help plan a fun week of literary festivities that support Cornell’s library!

 

Staff Appreciation

Help us create a culture of care for our beloved Cornell staff and teachers by planning fun festivities and treats for them throughout the year.

 

Coyote Fun Fitness Week

Help plan our biggest fundraiser of the year where fun and fitness are celebrated and we raise nearly 30k for our school!

 

Popsicle Wednesdays

Bring a time honored Wednesday tradition to Cornell kids each Wednesday. This job requires Wednesday afternoon availability and a Costco membership.

 

Green Schoolyard Team

Help beautify our school grounds and bring nature, education and play to our kids outdoors by volunteering in our garden and on our schoolyard.

 

Cornell's Got Talent

Join event chair Gregg Scharfstein to plan the beloved Cornell tradition where students showcase their hard work and talents at a performance in front of the entire school community.

 

Translators

Help the PTA make our communications more accessible to the entire community. If you are fluent in a language other than English, we would love your help translating our key documents.

 

PTA Executive Board

We are always looking for people who might want to join the board and be more involved on a leadership level.

 

Grant Writers

There are external funding opportunities (i.e. not parent donations) that have not been pursued because of a lack of dedicated effort seeking grants. We want to close this gap by finding experienced grant writing volunteers in our community.

 

Library Tech

Ms. Staton, our amazing librarian, needs some parent volunteers to keep the library open for students during the day. Volunteers will support kids as they look for books, check books in & out, and reshelve books.

 

Generic Interest

We are looking for people who have some flexibility and are open to us reaching out with volunteer opportunities as they arise.
