Become Involved...Your Child Will Benefit!

Hear Ye Hear Ye: Parent Volunteers Needed in Hosmer School Library

Parents can volunteer during their children’s classes and would be able to see what the children checkout. In addition to checkout/checkin responsibilities, volunteers will shelve books and complete various library projects to make our library a better place.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact me at:

Hosmer School Librarian

What an opportunity! Why do it?
The research overwhelmingly demonstrates that parent involvement in children's learning is positively related to achievement. Further, the research shows that the more intensively parents are involved in their children's learning, the more beneficial are the achievement effects. This holds true for all types of parent involvement in children's learning and for all types and ages of students.children perform better in school when parents get involved in their education, and volunteering is a great way to get involved.

Need more information? The Harvard Family Research Project from the Harvard Graduate School of Education shows the relationship of family involvement with child outcomes as seen in their figure below.
We would love to see you in the library...and your child will benefit from your involvement!
