Springtime Volunteering

1. Plan a potluck breakfast – Round up some volunteers and co-workers and invite all the class parents to a potluck breakfast. If each person brings one dish, there will be more than enough food for everyone!

2. Cards/flowers from students – Have each student in your class bring a single flower or hand written note to give to your class parent. This is a sweet, personal way to show your class parent how important they are. Click here for a thank you card template to hand out to your kids.

3. Buy/donate their favorite book – Find out your class parent’s favorite book and buy it for them or have a copy donated to the school library. Include in each book a bookplate with the name of the class parent who chose it.

4. Class thank you card – Make a large class parent thank-you card to display in the school. Place markers by the card so other faculty and students can sign it.

5. Certificates of appreciation – Personalize these certificates of appreciation and frame them to give to your class parent.
