A recent article by Sue Shellenbarger in the WSJ talks about the benefits of volunteering at your children's school. A small excerpt follows:

Making a Difference

Elementary School

  • Try to build a positive relationship with your child’s teacher.
  • Observe the teacher’s methods and rules and support them at home.
  • Get to know the school staff, rules and curriculum.
  • Learn other students’ names so you can talk with your child about them.

Middle School

  • Ask your child whether and how she wants you to volunteer.
  • Set expectations that your child will do the best he can in school and in life.
  • Learn about the curriculum so you can help your child choose courses and set goals.
  • Set an example with your volunteer work that you’d like your child to emulate.

High School

  • Continue coaching your child on setting academic goals and college plans.
  • Emphasize the process of learning over getting high grades or test scores.
  • Show interest in school by participating in events or fundraisers.
  • Talk about the rewards of being involved as a volunteer.
