I am on my schools Parent Involvement Committee. Our problem is that in a low income, highly hispanic area alot of our parents are working, have lots of other kids or they do not speak English.
We are coming up with ideas now to have the parents volunteer more in our school. Right now we have seriously a handful (literally about 10) parents who consistantly volunteers at functions and just throughout the school.
For next year we are considering calling it, "Two Hour Enrichment" where parents can sign up for 2 hrs a month to volunteer throughout the school.
What are some things that we can put on the list for them to volunteer to do. We also need ideas for the parents who do not speak English.
