The Benefits of Volunteering At My Kid’s School
To this day, I can still recall certain images of my mom taking me to school, and holding my hand cheerfully as we walked into a large building every morning, while explaining school is a great and happy place to learn new things. At times, my mom would also come to my classroom and sit with me to help with my school work. She would also show up when we had school parties and outdoor event. That daily routine of my mom taking me to school, and seeing her at school constantly, developed my optimistic motivation to do well in school, and helped me build good social skills by getting along with other kids. It also engraved a positive perspective toward school, and decreased a lot of disagreements and arguments with my brother. These are the out-coming benefits of volunteering at my kid’s school.
Forming Childhood Memories
Now that I am a parent in my forties, and take my three kids to school every day, I verbally express to them that school is a safe-zone place to learn new things, as my mom did with me. This daily routine has persuaded my kids to improve their performance and it’s consistently motivating their own desire to study more and get better grades, as I did when I was their age. Quite amazingly that just by taking my kids to school, they naturally want to now get good grades, that it has become a friendly competition of who will get the highest grades every nine weeks.

Volunteering During Honor Roll Assembly
During the most recent occasion I volunteered at my kids school, I assist their teachers to pass out drinks and snacks in their homeroom class, at the schools traditional Honor Roll Assembly. Since each ceremony was, thankfully, at different times, I was able attend all of them to acquire images of each receiving their awards. By the way, and not to brag, all three usually make into the honor roll and always earn perfect attendance. This consistency of witnessing the benefits of volunteering at my kid’s school for these events, has spawned improved social skills by getting along better with their friends and teachers, as well as with each other and including with us at home.

Volunteering During Field Day
Near the end of every year, the school holds their Field Day event at which I always volunteer. I was assigned passing out refreshments after each event. It was like running around in a chicken coral. The back and forth between each of my kids events, bringing them and their class mates water and juice. It actually got altogether comical and goofy, I kept dropping the water and juice bottles on the grass while running from each event, in shorts, under the beaming sun, with my cap sliding off gearing to the sides due to my excessive sweating. This interaction with my kids at their school, other parents, teachers and students has really shifted my kid’s overall attitude toward school into a positive cool place to be, and has diminishing the frequency of disagreements and arguments at home,which is a huge plus in my book.
