Volunteer Update

My first parent volunteer was in today and ROCKED. MY. ART ROOM. After this post seeking some help I took heart to Rina's suggestion to keep her busy. Seriously. Read Rina's comment. Is it not the most thorough, amazing list of considerations for volunteers?
I made a list three times longer than I thought necessary and she did it all. ALL. ALL OF IT.
She cut scratch art paper, sharpened pencils, set out my table bins swapping new pencils for dull and broken ones. She prepped 28 perfect golf ball sized portions of clay. She photographed student art, labeled it and hung it up in the hall (after taking down the current display, sorting it and filing it).

I am praying she comes back.

  1. Hurray!!!!! Welcome to your new world, where you have less stress, and more time to plan, expand your lessons and explore new art projects. A place where your volunteer feels connected to her (or his) child's school. And a child who is proud to have their parent help at school. It's a win-win-win.
