As parents, it can be tough for us to find the time to volunteer regularly at our kids’ schools when we’re working full time or have younger kids at home, too. But there are other great ways to get involved that may take up less time! And getting involved in your kids’ school shows your kiddos that you’re interested and engaged with their lives and their education.
We compiled a list of our Top 5 ways to get involved:
1. Tutor students
By far one of the most rewarding jobs – helping a child learn to read and write.
2. Help build the stage or wardrobe for the school’s annual theatre production
Unleash your creative side!
3. Organize or involve yourself with a club that shares your interests.
Our favourite idea: crafting!
4. Help plan or chaperone a field trip
This one could be the most fun, plus you’ll get to spend time with your own kiddo!
5. Share your favourite product – Mabel’s Labels!
Set up and share a personalized fundraising link for your school. If parents order online, the school earns 20% commission automatically. It’s THAT easy! Learn more about the Mabel’s Labels Fundraising program.
