There are a lot of ways to be an involved parent! Sometimes we are looking for the gift of time, and sometime we are looking for a food or drink donation for a school event. Many of our events and activities require a lot of parental support to be a success. There are many ways to help!
Casey Kwitkin, our Volunteer Coordinator, will use the Sign-Up Genius website to recruit Volunteers for school events. You will find these links on this page, the VESPTO Facebook page, and you should receive them via e-mail. Please email Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure she has you on her email list!
Q: I want to volunteer but I need to bring my younger child with me, is that ok?
A: Simply put, maybe! It really depends on the child, and the task.
When in doubt, ask!
Q: I want to volunteer but I can’t commit to the times on the sign up genius. I need to leave early/come late to a shift.
A: That is just fine! We will gladly have your help for whatever time you can give. Just put a note on the Sign Up Genius or let the volunteer coordinator know at email@example.com.
Q: I signed up for a shift/donation but my schedule has changed and I am no longer available.
A: No problem, things happen! Please let us know of any changes via the Sign Up Genius or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: I have an item to donate as requested, but I’m not sure where to bring it.
A: Thank you for your donation! Please drop it in the front office with a note saying where it belongs (i.e. teacher’s name, library, music, art room, etc.)
