Peachtree Academy is a non-denominational, college preparatory private school that provides a rigorous, well balanced, and enriching educational experience. Our challenging curriculum incorporates innovative strategies in combination with a traditional repertoire delivered by an expert staff committed to the highest standards of academic scholarship that will inspire all students to reach their highest God-given potential.
Today our Volunteer Spotlight shines on 3rd Grade teacher, Lynn Osborne, who uses VolunteerSpot's free online signup sheets to coordinate parent volunteers.
Please tell us about your organizationand your volunteer needs.
Peachtree Academy began as a school of early childhood development that quickly progressed into a full array of academic, athletic, and fine arts opportunities beginning in Pre-School and continuing through the 12th grade.
I am a teacher and have to get volunteers frequently. I used it for getting volunteers to sign up for Harvest Festival booth times and at Thanksgiving for signing up for items to bring in for our meal. I am also involved with my children's activities and my church, and will use this site for these activities as well. I recommend that teachers use it anytime they need volunteers, supply drives, meals or conferences.
Explain how you use VolunteerSpot to coordinate these volunteers.
This is a very easy way to get the volunteers I need and I don't have to go back and update everything: Volunteer Spot does it for me. It was so easy to set up and easy for me to see what slots were not filled yet. It is also a lot more user friendly than other online programs I've tried - I always mess those up! I liked that the website sent the reminders automatically and that I was able to go online and send thank you notes as well.
This was the first time I used Volunteer Spot and I loved it! A colleague at the school recommended it to me. I think this is a great site for teachers. I LOVE THIS SITE!
