  • Yes. I go to the classroom and the parents all can sign up to read books to the class every so often, so I do that. I also help out with the various festivals. This last fall we had one and I did the face painting and nail polish booth.

  • I should, but we don't get the month's notice that I need in order to get the day off of work. I hopefully will get more notice next year (kindergarten)

  • I do, several days a week. Usually not all day, but today was an all day event. First we went on a field trip, when we got back i had to run the register at the Book Fair. I go in to my son's class two afternoons a week and my daughter's class just one afternoon a week.

  • DS is in K. I went on the field trip in the fall, helped at the 100 Days party the other day, & the Christmas party. I told his teacher at the beginning of the school year that I'm available anytime, since I'm a SAHM, ds is my only kid, & I live 2 minutes away from the school. She asks me to come in a few times a month to do stuff like tear pages out of work books &sort them, cut things, etc....simple tasks, but it's hard for her as she is older (60-ish) and has arthritis (according to another teacher who saw me helping and was telling me how great it was). I help the librarian each Tuesday during ds's library class. A few other moms are always at library, too...we read the story, help shelve the books, help the kids find books, check them out, check books in, etc. I really like's been great to get to know the teacher, kids and some of the other parents.
