    Parent Help
    By Lima Beans

    I know what you mean about parent volunteers at times. I love knowing I have the help when I need it, but I have a hard time with the scheduling. Finally, this year, in my welcome letter, I noted that that I use volunteers on an "as needed" basis. I call specific parents, who indicate to me they would like to help, when I have a special project that needs to be done, or if I know I need an extra set of hands or eyes in the room.

    The first grade teachers at my school have Math Games every Friday. So I'm thinking, if you know in your schedule that you do something pretty consistantly and it wouldn't be too stressful or hard to incorporate parents....try something like that. I'm pretty certain that is the only volunteers the first grade team uses. Hope this helps!
