Dear Chickering friends and families,
When it comes to volunteering in your child's school some people think it's this huge "all or nothing” thing. We're happy to tell you that it's not and more importantly, a little can really go a long way! There's a lot of behind the scenes work to be done at Chickering that doesn't require anything other than a willingness to give a little time and and a little energy. Everyone is good at something which means everyone has something to offer.
What are you good at? How can you apply your skills and passions to help build your child's school community? The trick is to look at what you're passionate about and apply it to volunteer work. Do you love art, music, gardening, event planning or computers? Many of the these passions can be used to enhance Chickering School through volunteering with the Dover PTO. Our curriculum enrichment programs, teacher wish list items, book fairs and special events are organized by parent volunteers who believe that our kids are worth the extra effort. Helping to oversee some of these programs and events can help to give you and your child a more meaningful school experience and that should be motivation enough for anyone! We are currently seeking Chickering parents to fill open volunteer positions for the 2019 - 2020 school year. If you are interested or would like to nominate someone you think would be a great candidate visit bit.ly/ChickeringVolunteers. Not only will your volunteer efforts pay off by enhancing the school experience of our children, you'll feel pretty good about yourself, too! Doing good for others feels right - it's as simple as that. Have a wonderful April break this month!
