We LOVE our volunteers!

Be part of a proud tradition: Become a Carlisle volunteer!

There are a variety of ways that you can get involved!  Whether you can come in once a week, once a month or once in a while, volunteering makes Carlisle better for you, your children, and your community.

We are recruiting volunteers for the following:

Pick your areas of interest now!

PISD Volunteer Online Application process: All volunteers must complete this process and receive approval prior to the first time you want to help. It's a background check and takes just a few minutes to complete and submit. Once submitted you will receive an email that the application was received and is being processed. Approvals may take up to five business days. There is no follow up email so if you want confirmation, please feel free to email volunteers@carlislepta.org for an update.

PISD Volunteer Application
PISD resets the status of ALL volunteers every year on June 30th. As a result, each parent must re-submit their Volunteer Application each year after July 1st. Completing the application and passing the background check is required to volunteer for any event, function, activity at Carlisle.


All volunteer names are checked against the database prior to volunteering events. We receive a list of volunteer names and the clearance status ("pending," "approved," "not approved").

  • If you are not on that list it means you have not started the process. We'll notify you one time as a reminder approximately 7 days prior to the event.
  • If you are on the list but have a status other than "approved," we cannot allow you to volunteer. If you show up to the event, you will be turned away. We take very seriously the safety of all of our Coyotes.

PTA-based volunteering opportunities will be communicated via Facebook, Howler, Thursday packet, Sign Up Genius emails, word-of-mouth, and any other way we can find to keep you updated. We love our volunteers and if we have a way for you to help we'll let you know about it!

The first time you volunteer at the school please check in at the school office to have your driver license scanned and to sign the book. Scanning is a once-per-school-year action to put you in the system. You will then receive a Visitor sticker and, moving forward, will only need to sign the book to get the sticker. The only exception to this is Field Day, which provides its own stickers to all volunteers.

We LOVE our volunteers! There are only 24 hours in a day and sometimes we need more to get it all done. So, any time of your busy day that you can spend helping Carlisle is very much appreciated.

If you have questions or would like more information about volunteering, please contact Kara Lindsley at Volunteers@carlislepta.org
