What Can A 3 Hour Promise Really Do? (Benefits For Your School)
1. When parents sign a promise card to volunteer three hours, you just gave them a reason to come into the school or ask to do things from home to support the school and its students.
2. Male involvement increases. Three for Me lends a new perception of “getting in-volved,” therefore more dads, step dads, grandfathers, and big brothers join in.
3. Parents become more in tune to the needs of the school and students.
PTA Founders Day, February 17, is a reminder of the substantial role that PTA has played locally, regionally, and nationally in supporting parent involvement and working on behalf of all children and families. It's a time to renew our commitment to be a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for public education.
