• Volunteer Information  

    If you have any questions about volunteering at The Downtown School, please contact our volunteer coordinator:

    Amanda Wright 




    Volunteering at The Downtown School is vitally important to the learning environment and education of our children.  Unlike other schools, volunteering is required (1 hour per week/child) and serves to offset the limited resources and staff allocations provided to our unique school model.  We recognize each person has skills and realize schedules change; our goal is to ensure throughout the school year, you have the right opportunities to contribute to DTS!

     Name Tags

    • You will need to sign in and out of Ident A Kid and Helpcounter every time that you volunteer.  Sign in stations are located in the office areas of all buildings. They are the same computers that you will sign kids in and out of if they are tardy or are leaving early.  When you sign out, you will use the code that is on the lower left of your name tag. There are information sheets at all the sign-in computers to help with these steps.

    • Remember to bring your driver’s license with you.  

    • Name tags must be worn at all times.

    • Children not attending The Downtown School are not allowed to be with parents while volunteering during the school day.  

    Important Links

    • Reminder that everyone who volunteers needs to complete the WSFCS Volunteer form yearly.  If you have already been prompted to update your form, you are all set. If you are a new volunteer or have not updated your form, here is the link to complete the process.
