COVID Vaccination Status

All volunteers must report their vaccination status to SCUSD here.

If volunteers test with us at one of our testing sites (Serna Center or Albert Einstein), they will be cleared from the testing protocol by our staff; if they test outside the District, they will need to upload their test results to us weekly through a testing protocol that they will receive at the email address provided in the registration form above. 

Full vaccination or regular testing are required of our volunteers in addition to following public health guidelines while on campus. 

If you have any questions about this new process, please reach out to compliance@scusd.edu.  

Passive Fundraising Opportunities

Overview

Here are a handful of ways you can raise funds for our school while going about your daily activities. All that is required of you is to register with participating companies and then spend as you normally would. The companies give a percentage of your spending back to Caleb Greenwood. It’s that simple and it works!

Please participate. Encourage friends and family to participate. By the end of the year, each family will have contributed a few hundred dollars without giving up any extra time or money!

Did you know that many employers sponsor matching gift programs and may match your donations to the Caleb Greenwood PTSO.  Some companies even award money to our organization for your volunteer hours!  All donations to the Caleb Greenwood PTSO help to support our students and school and you may be able to double the impact of your gift.  

To check if your company will match your donation:=

Step 1 – Check with HR to see if the company has a matching gift program.

Step 2 – Submit for the matching gift following program rules (be aware of submission deadline or limits)

Step 3 – Once you have submitted the matching gift request or if you have questions, please contact us at CalebGreenwoodPTSO@gmail.com
