Parent Volunteers

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I have a huge group of stay at home parents this year. Many of them have contacted me via e-mail or at school pickup to ask about volunteering in my classroom. While I am excited I have this many willing parents I am unsure how to fit them into my room. I have an Autistic student who has a full one on one aide with me all day. Then I am the SPED cluster teacher so either have a para or the Sped teacher in with me as well all day. Both the aide and para/Sped teacher work with kids during small group rotations. With 29 kids and all ready 3 adults I am not sure where a parent volunteer would fit in. I don't want parents thinking they are not welcome in my room but my room is small and I am not sure a 4th adult would work. Should I include a note in my newsletter this week letting parents know that I am trying to figure out how to best use volunteers? How would you use the volunteer in your room?
