When parents support or volunteer at their child’s school, both parties win. The school receives much-needed assistance while parents get the chance to meet and interact with the educators and administrators who look after their child or children five days a week. Volunteering can also give parents a chance to impress upon their children the importance of giving back and benefiting the greater community. There are countless ways for parents to get involved at their children’s school.
For eager parents, parent-teacher conference night or a school open house event represent great ways to get involved early during the year. Parents can contact their child’s teacher directly about volunteer opportunities, or make arrangements with the school’s Parent Teacher Association (PTA) or parents’ advisory council. As the school year progresses, parents can continue to help by assisting in the classroom, tutoring students, and serving as a monitor on the playground or in the lunchroom. Parents are especially appreciated at large school functions, such as dances for the students or fundraising events.
