  • Just ask. At my son's preschool you have options such as bringing in snacks, helping out during parties, or helping out when a teacher is sick. I do all these things.

  • When my daughter has a party at school I usually bake many different sweets and finger foods. She wants to take them to her school herself but I don't feel comfortable with her doing that. I take them about 30 minutes before the party starts and ask if they would like an extra set of hands for the party.
    I also volunteer for field trips. This is a huge area in which they need as many people as possible. I do the PTA as well.
