The classroom volunteer program our school uses is called Learning Links. What is Learning Links? Learning Links is used to create communication between administration, teachers and parents and improve our children's education.
"Learning Links" implies that there are many links to a child's education. The first link is the child. Connected to the child are other links including parents, families, teachers, administration, and the community. Children need all of these links in order to obtain the best possible education.
The purpose of Learning Links is to create an inviting, welcoming environment for parents to get involved, and to create a network of parent resources to help teachers.
Each classroom has a Learning Links Representative who works one-on-one with the teacher to help accommodate the classroom needs. The classroom representative helps coordinate any classroom needs such as parent volunteers, classroom celebrations, and is a vital part of parent/teacher communication.
As a parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle, you can sign up to volunteer in the classroom. You will benefit in many ways. You will be able to be in the classroom and meet the children, see the teacher in action, and show your own child that their education is important to you.
Please look for information from your child's Learning Links classroom representative to come home on red paper. Thank you for your support. If you have questions regarding this program, please feel free to contact Didi Weaver at firstname.lastname@example.org
