Utilize parent help
Many of us always have parents asking, “What can I do to help?”
Give them a weekly job that you can always count on. It will be a routine for them so after the first time, they won’t need your help and it helps gets a task done for you.
At our school we have Wednesday folders that upcoming events and flyers for the students. I keep it all in a basket by my door so that a mom can pick it up Wednesday and stuff the folders. This saves me an extra half hour out of my day.
I also label all my copies Thursday and Friday morning A mom comes and picks them up. She makes my copies for the following week so I am prepped and ready. This saves about another hour.
You can also use them to organize books, file papers and cut your laminate.
You just have to not be afraid to ask!
