Volunteering.... What is in it for me and my child(ren)?

I will share a personal experience and observation with you.  When a child sees their parent unexpectedly in the school, doing things for the school to benefit them, their eyes light up and they are happy!  They often point to their friends and giddily show their friends "LOOK!  That's my <insert family relationship>!"  We are so blessed with parents, grandparents, older siblings, aunts and uncles being involved in our children's lives here in the school setting.  Your children LOVE seeing that you are invested in their school and thus, their future.  I've had the personal experience of a teacher telling me just how excited my child was having seen me or knowing when I was coming or going to be there.  You matter to them.  If you have a hard time believing it, come visit your child(ren) at their lunch break.  Arrive early so you see the moment their eyes lock on you, whether it's in the lunch room already seated or in the waiting area outside the school office.  It's such a wonderful feeling!  I challenge you to try it!

Research shows that when parents are involved in their children's education, the children are more likely to:
 * Earn better grades.
 * Score higher on tests.
 * Pass their classes.
 * Attend school regularly.
 * Have better social skills.
 * Show improved behavior.
 * Be more positive in their attitude toward school.
 * Complete homework assignments.
 * Graduate and continue their education.

Please let us know if you are interested in volunteering or would like to know ways to get involved even if you don't have the time.

We commonly need volunteers for events such as:
 
Winter Dance
Cupcakes and Cuties
Read Across America Week
BINGO
Spring Scoop
5th Grade Promotion
Husky Fun Run & 5K

There are many ways to help, even if you are a working parent. Please watch our announcements for a way to get involved with our school or contact us (HendersonHuskyPTCO@gmail.com) and we'll gladly talk to you about what is needed and work with whatever way can fit into your busy schedule.   Sometimes it's something you can do home your home or office without being present!

Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the HEART.
