VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
Below is a list of the parent volunteer opportunities available throughout the year at Wheelock. For most of these opportunities, you will be contacted in September/October with additional information.
Winter Carnival Positions
The Winter Carnival is the most important fundraiser of the year, so committee positions really make a difference!
In order to lighten the work load and create a more fun planning process, we have created more positions with lesser duties.
THIS SINGLE FUNDRAISER BROUGHT IN NEARLY $40,000 IN ONE DAY! BE A PART OF IT!

All parents will have the opportunity to volunteer at their child's classroom booth on the day of the carnival. We are also looking for additional volunteers to serve on planning committees. The Winter Carnival will be held at Memorial School on Saturday, March 10, 2018.
Winter Carnival Planning Committees
If you have a friend, with whom you would like to work in the planning, please note below:
Your answer
Wheelock Program Coordinator
This person will help teachers manage (schedule, book, confirm, and pay) different performing arts groups that help enhance learning at Wheelock. This liaison role will hopefully alleviate grade level leaders, Erin Watson and Kayla Laliberte, of the extra work involved in planning these special visits and programs,. This person would help ensure programming payment needs are communicated in a timely manner so that performers can receive their payments promptly.
Wheelock Family Game Night/Book Fair
In November (specific date TBD), we will hold our third annual Book Fair/Family Game night in the Wheelock cafeteria and Mango gym. We will need lots of help! We are looking for volunteers to co-chair this event, as well as volunteers to help on the actual day. This event is held in the evening. Possible volunteer positions include concessions, set-up/break down, check-out, etc. Volunteers will be contacted shortly after the school year begins.
Hospitality Committee
The Wheelock PTO organizes three teacher luncheons over the course of the school year - Back-to-School, Holiday and Teacher Appreciation. Volunteers are needed to send in food/supplies and for set-up/clean-up on the day of the luncheons. Parents can also chair/co-chair this committee. Please note, the back-to-school luncheon falls on the first day of school (Wednesday, August 30 2017)
Ice Cream Social
Typically held at the end of March, the Wheelock Ice Cream social is a fun family event featuring make-your-own ice cream sundaes and a DJ dance party. We are looking for two co-chairs for this event as well as volunteers to help on the actual day of the event. These positions include pre-scooping ice cream, working the toppings stations, check-in, etc. Planning for this event typically begins in January/February.
Box Tops Committee
Our Box Tops fundraiser provides a steady source of funding for Wheelock, and we want to make it even easier for families to participate in 2017-18. Bring your ideas for how we can improve this fundraiser (ie classroom incentives, increased number of competitions, etc). Other volunteer opportunities include Box Top collections and sorting. This is a fundraiser that runs throughout the school year. Planning will begin in September. This committee is a good choice for working parents, as many of the jobs can be done from home.
Walking Club
Nancy Schiemer, the school nurse, runs a Walking Club for students during Tuesday/Thursday recess in Fall and Spring. Volunteers are needed during recess hours to monitor students and to record their walking progress. Scheduling will begin in September.
Third Grade DVD
Many hands make light work! In conjunction with the 3rd grade room parents, this committee will oversee the creation of the commemorative, end-of-year DVD. Photos will be of the children participating in school functions and events only. We are also looking for a few parents who would be willing to take photographs at events over the course of the year (i.e. Rocky Woods, Halloween Parade, etc.) Planning for the DVD will begin in September.
School Decorating Committee
The Decorating Committee is responsible for changing the seasonal decorations in the front of the school four times per year. We also are looking for one or two people to change the look and feel of the bulletin board in the front hallway several times per year. Planning/scheduling for the school year will begin in September.
Courtyard Committee
Volunteers are needed to assist with the upkeep of the Wheelock Courtyard. Planning/scheduling for the school year will begin in September.
General Volunteers
Throughout the school year, opportunities and events may arise that require volunteers. By expressing interest in volunteering, you may receive emails and/or sign-up genius requests at any point in the school year. You are not obligated to volunteer by adding your name to this list.
