Sydenstricker School Volunteer Program
Sydenstricker School Parent Volunteer - a person who, working under staff supervision, donates his or her time to assist with activities that enhance instruction, promote learning and social activities.
Parent Volunteer Program Goals:
The goal of Sydenstricker School Volunteer Program is to enable dedicated parents to assist administrators, teachers and other school personnel in helping young people more fully develop their academic skills, their potential as individuals and their mastery of social skills. Supervised volunteers assist school personnel in three major ways:
- helping students through activities that enhance their self-concepts, provide successful educational experiences and motivate them to learn
- aiding school staff members by enabling them to provide effective reinforcement activities and enrich the curriculum
- strengthening school-community relationships by increasing opportunites for communication, learning more about the school curriculum and sharing time
and talent with the school
Parent Volunteers help in many areas. They provide classroom or general service help during snacks, answering phones in the office, assist on the
playground, assist with field trips, extracurricular activities, bilingual translating; share special musical skills as playing the piano or serve as a career speaker.
