10 Reasons to Get Involved
1. Your child benefits.
Research shows children whose parents are involved get better grades, do better on tests, and have fewer discipline problems at school.
2. We make a difference.
Our mission is to create the kind of school community where teachers and administrators can do their best work—and so can our children.
3. We pledge to honor your time constraints.
An hour or two a semester really makes a difference. And we won’t push you to commit more than you want to or are able to.
4. We have fun.
Volunteer work shouldn’t be drudgery. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, and we try to enjoy ourselves along the way whenever possible.
5. Meet nice people who share your concerns.
We all have a common bond. We care about creating
the best possible educational experience for our children.
6. There’s a lot to be done.
These days, schools are asked to do more with less. Our help is needed more than ever to fill the gaps.
7. We can match jobs to your interests and abilities.
We encourage creative ideas, and we’re thrilled to have people take on tasks that meet their skills and interests.
8. We’re welcoming.
To us, there are no “outsiders.” We are people who have come together to work toward common goals.
9. We’re about parent involvement, not fundraising.
Our number one goal is to get more parents connected to the school.
10. This work is very rewarding.
It’s seeing the bright light of learning sparkle in a child’s eye. It’s seeing the smile that shows we’re making school a little more fun—and a child feel a little more comfortable in a learning environment. It’s learning that test scores have risen and knowing we played a role. There are lots of rewards, both big and small, for those who get involved. Won’t you join us?
