There are numerous tips to share, but this post will focus on the sidebar. The sidebar is divided into three parts:
Sidetracking for a moment... If you volunteer at school at any time, chaperone field trips, support your teacher in the classroom or bring projects home, and help the PTA, we need your help in recording hours. Volunteer hours serve two important purposes:
1) When pursuing grants, some applications require an estimate of volunteer hours at the school and/or non-profit organization (PTA).
2) The Santa Barbara Area Council of PTAs organization requests a report of volunteer hours. This figure is important to retain our non-profit status.
When you have a moment, please do you best to record your volunteer hours. I do have a formula I've used throughout the years to provide a best guess, but it would be wonderful to help us out as a PTA to ensure we have an accurate number.
If you have any suggestions, please feel free to contact the ParentSquare team. They're always looking for ways to improve ParentSquare!
