Getting Involved at School Volunteering is a great way to show your kids that you take an interest in their education. Parent volunteers offer a huge resource and support base for the school community while showing their kids the importance of participating in the larger community. Even if you haven't been involved in the past, start now!

Four questions to consider: 1.What does the ideal volunteer experience look like to you?  2.    What are your strengths and interests?   3. How many hours can you volunteer?   4.    Is it better to actually be in the school or take things home to work on?  Consider some suggestions:

 •Help in your child’s classroom

•Have goal setting talks with child/teacher

•Use weekly data-sharing folders

•Help organize, or work at fundraising activities

•Help to plan and chaperone field trips

•Have regular personalized communication with teacher/school

•Volunteer to speak in the classroom or at a career day

•Supervise or judge experiments at a science fair

•Be at parent training events

•Be involved in interactive homework, tips, and tools for home learning


Volunteering not only benefits your children; you also benefit by making the school a move positive place. Through your modeling, relationship building and support, you will be helping in ways that will reap benefits for everyone.
