When parents get connected to the school, children do better. Research shows children whose parents are involved get better grades, do better on tests and have fewer discipline problems at school.
We all have a common bond. We care about creating the best possible educational experience for our children. We are neighbours who share many of the same experiences. And many friendships have developed as a result of those connections.
Volunteer work shouldn't be drudgery. We accomplish a lot and not everything we do is easy. But we don't take ourselves too seriously, and we try to enjoy ourselves along the way.
In these times of tight budgets, parent groups everywhere are having to fill in the gaps, and so are we. But our number one goal is to get more parents connected to the school. That's because more than 300 independent research studies show that building involvement in education is the number one thing we can do to create a great school and improve student performance.
These days, schools are asked to do more with less. Our help is needed more than ever to fill the gaps.
To us, there are no 'outsiders'. We are people who have come together to work toward common goals. She couldn't be happier to have you join us working toward those goals.
The work we do covers a broad spectrum; photocopying, planning and executing events, writing and editing, working directly with children, managing a budget and cash-flow, and lots more. We encourage creative ideas and we're thrilled to have people take on tasks that meet their skills and interests.
