​ Get Involved! We love our Volunteers!

Parent Volunteers play an integral part at Antelope Trails. We appreciate and recognize your time, talent, expertise, support and assistance you give! Volunteers may include parents (Parent Volunteers) and patrons (Volunteers).  In order to volunteer at any District 20,  school parents must complete a Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) background check. There is a $6.85 fee payable to the school due at the time of application.  Volunteers must complete a CBI and a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) background check and   fingerprinting process.  There is a $6.85 CBI fee, a $39.50 FBI fee payable to the school due at the application time.  The Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) will also have a $15 fee for fingerprinting.

Applications for all volunteers are available in the front office or are available on our website under School Documents.

Antelope Trails PTO 2017-2018

The Antelope Trails Elementary School PTO would like to welcome new and returning families back to school! We hope you all had a fun, relaxing and restful summer.

The PTO, a non-profit organization, is a community of parents, students, teachers and administrators that work collaboratively to enhance each child's educational environment here at Antelope Trails.  We have such a wonderful and warm community that makes ATE a great place to be! Through generous donations, volunteer opportunities, and fundraising efforts, our PTO is able to provide grants and support for our school and our children.

For the PTO to be truly effective, we would love for you to become involved!  Whether you work in or outside the home, there are endless opportunities for you to share your time and talents.  In doing so, you will interact with the students, become friends with other parents, and accomplish things that will benefit all of our children.

Last school year, with the help of parents and the ATE community, we accomplished great things!  We are proud to tell you that over $20,000 was raised through our fundraisers. We were able to purchase 30 iPads and keyboards to assist with students' personalized learning, locking charging stations for 4th grade iPads (stored in classrooms), a set of tubano percussion drums for the music room, tables for events, and a new digital marquee that will be installed in front of the school in the summer of 2017.
