I try to go every Monday from about 9:15 to 11:55 when his class is out. I've helped the kids with projects that need supervision and that allows the teacher to focus on the other projects, and I've also done copy runs and a few other errands around school. It's just kindergarten, but I like being involved, and I can see what he's doing. Another class mom does "cooking" with the kids on Fridays. They've made elephant ears, smoothies, lollipops, and a bunch of other stuff. She usually writes down the recipes and copies them to take home too. I think the teacher's got one more weekly volunteer somewhere in the middle of the week too - but she generally does the same things I do.
