Thoughtful Tuesday: Volunteering

Volunteers make a difference

National Parent Involvement Day – Volunteering is to make a difference

November 15 is National Parent Involvement Day and volunteering is only a part of involvement. The evidence is overwhelming: Students who have highly-involved families get higher grades, have fewer discipline problems, and are more likely to be successful throughout their entire life (GA Department of Education).

So, make a resolution and start by visiting your child’s school to say hello to the staff and observe the classroom. Then, ask a simple question: What Can I Do To Help?

The school staff will be ecstatic to get an extra set of hands to cater to the students.

Go On, Make A Difference.

Come back and share your experience (even if it was your first time volunteering)….
