Many parent groups think that throwing a year-end party or giving out a small gift is all there is to volunteer appreciation. This Volunteer & Teacher Appreciation Toolkit will show you how to make recognition an ongoing effort that will significantly improve the volunteer experience and increase involvement.
The Volunteer & Teacher Appreciation Toolkit includes information on how to make parents feel welcome, tips for using people's talents (not just their time), effective ways to say thank you, dozens of ideas for volunteer appreciation, and more than 50 ideas for teacher appreciation.
