*We recommend that parents expand their volunteering options and teach in classes other than their own children’s classes. It can be much easier to be present and enjoy yourself if you are not wearing a parenting and teaching hat at the same time. Teaching and learning in different groups give you and your child an opportunity to meet and connect with other members of our intergenerational community at first parish. We especially look for non-parents to work with our 7th – 12th graders. If you have questions or concerns about this recommendation, please speak to me in person-
