Back to School Night Ideas, Plan, Letter and PowerPoint | SignUp Saturday
Back-to-school night is the prime opportunity for parents to meet their kids' teachers, hear what the plans are for the school year, as well as find out what volunteer opportunities are available for class parents. VolunteerSpot recommends skipping the huddle on the clipboard volunteer signup sheets and sending the link home (or to parents' phones!). More parents sign up to help when they can see their weekly/monthly schedules and sign up at their convenience. Teachers will love automated reminder messages which help parents keep their commitments!
RESOURCE: Room Parents Download BackTo School Night Letter to customize for your class parents.
Kindergarten Sign Up Sheet Template (Volunteer View): Coordinate weekly/monthly class parent volunteer needs and have volunteers sign up for the date and time that works best for them - on their computer or mobile device!
Classroom Online Volunteer Calendar (Volunteer View): In as much as a few clicks, volunteers can access a list of classroom volunteer needs, from field trips to class parties, and sign up to help! Parent involvement will grow with the ease of VolunteerSpot's online sign up tool, and kids will love seeing mom and dad helping out in their classroom!
For your Back-to-School Night, think about what kind of volunteer job you would like to have this year. If you’re extra busy, opt to be a classroom reader or help with a weekend activity like the school garden or a fundraiser. Do you have a more flexible schedule? Consider a weekly volunteer spot helping with math stations or art projects. Have a special skill to share like computers, music or science? Tell the teacher that you’re willing to pitch-in for an enriching year! And if you like to plan parties and coordinate people, BE BOLD and challenge yourself by being the Room Mom.
