WHY VOLUNTEER IN MIDDLE SCHOOL?
Why Involvement Matters
Research shows that when parents are involved in their children's education, the children are more likely to:
• earn better grades.
• score higher on tests.
• pass their classes.
• attend school regularly.
• have better social skills.
• show improved behavior.
• be more positive in their attitude toward school.
• complete homework assignments.
• graduate and continue their education.
A Significant Difference
One study found that students from families with above-average parent involvement were 30 percent more successful in school than those with below-average involvement. Success was measured by GPA; test scores in math, science, reading, and social studies; promotion and retention rates; and teacher ratings. Another study found that in schools where teachers reported high levels of outreach to parents, test scores grew at a rate 40 percent higher than in schools that reported low levels of outreach to parents. A three-year study of 12,000 high school student concluded that "When parents come to school regularly, it reinforces the view in the child's mind that school and home are connected and that school is an integral part of the whole family's life.”
Friends of CLP and Meetings
We meet 6-8 times throughout the year at CLP. Some meetings are in the afternoons and others are in the evening.
Meeting dates and times will be posted through our Principal’s Message, on our CLP MS VOLUNTEER Home page link, in the CLP Newsletter ‘Friends of CLP’ Section and through email from the Executive Board.
You can choose to help at a single event, for a single day, at ongoing projects or working with school staff. We will let you know when to meet up and help out! Make sure to contact us so we can get in touch with you.
Throughout the year you can always add extra events or change plans and be removed from a sign-up.
WHEN YOU ARE READY….
Volunteers in Poudre School District MUST be registered with the school district.
This is a simple process that takes only a few minutes and is a one time registration.
Once registered you will have access to opportunities at a specific school or schools of your choice, or district-wide.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU!
