Prairie Trace Elementary is fortunate to have parents and families volunteer their time and talents to enrich our students' learning experiences.  Prairie Trace Elementary welcomes all parent volunteers. All volunteers must have a criminal history background check done prior to volunteering at school. If you are a new volunteer to Prairie Trace, please make certain you have a completed Criminal History Background Check on file. To obtain this report, please CLICK HERE to access the Background Investigation Bureau and follow the steps listed.   If you have multiple children who attend multiple schools in Carmel, you only need one criminal background report.  Background checks are $17.95.  Your child's school admistration will be contacted when the criminal background report  is complete.  

Just a few volunteer opportunities are listed below!
