LEADER IN ME FAMILY NEWSLETTER

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

• Mentor or tutor students,

• Attend a PTA Meeting

• Help to plan and chaperone field trips • Organize or assist with a specific club or interest group

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