Public Schools Encourage Parents to Volunteer

by Deirdre Blake posted Jan 1 2013 2:04PM
Parents can do more than just help their kids with their school work this year. Renee Daniels with Spotsylvania County Schools says they can get involved in the school system by becoming volunteers. Wallace says parents can help in a number of ways. Some become room mothers to younger children, some act as cafeteria or hall monitors and still others run special events and field trips.
Daniels says public schools enjoy getting parents involved in the process. She says it is helpful for parents to see their kids in a learning environment and that often gets kids more excited about learning. Many times, Wallace says parents can help fill in holes where help is needed but no money is in the school budget.
If you want to get involved, contact your child's teachers or school principal. More times than not, if a parent shows interest, a job in the school can be found.
