Parent Volunteers

I love my parent volunteers! At the beginning of the year, the parents are able to pick a time to come in to the classroom and work with students or do miscellaneous projects to help me each week.  I just want to show you how I organize what I want them to do. I keep the items (lamination cut outs, cutting projects, or testing materials) in bins organized by days of the week. If a parent comes in on a Monday he/she can check the Monday bin to see if there is any work for them to do right when they come in. Sometimes I don't have anything in there, that means I have something more specific for them to do.
I also have volunteers who help from home. I send home a "work bag" with something I need for them to help me with. I  include all the supplies needed with a note explaining what I need them to do and when I need it back to school by. I usually give them at least a week. Then on my own personal spreadsheet I have all of my at home volunteers on a list. I make sure to mark by their name what I sent home and when it is due. This ensures the parent doesn't forget to send it in and I make sure that I am not sending home tons of stuff with just one parent.

As a parent volunteer, I absolutely LOVE this idea & your organization of it!! I try to pop in as often as I can, even if it is just to do a couple of quick things and being able to go right to what the teacher could use help with that day w/o bothering their learning time is fantastic. If a specific parent is coming in to do something, a post it with their name would let me know it's taken care of & I could do something else. I've pinned this. :) <3 it!!

The Schengen Area is a group of 26 European countries that have abolished passport and immigration controls at their common borders and have a common visa policy. It functions almost like a single country for international travel purposes, which, by allowing Member States to add their own specific provisions regarding types of residence and local visas, ensures that certain types of visas are universal and that the person holding the residence is in the same a Schengen country does not require a visa to visit or transit through another Schengen country - in that sense it is very close to the general immigration policy of the European Union (the United Kingdom and Ireland are part of their own separate agreement called (and therefore do not operate there Schengen rules even if they are both part of the European Union (it should also be noted that the Schengen area also includes non-EU countries). http://www.immigration-residency.eu/
