Spotlight Volunteer: Brenna Campbell

Here are Brenna's responses to some questions about her experience volunteering at Armatage.

How long have you been a parent at Armatage?
We became an Armatage family when our son, Liam, enrolled in Miss. Connie’s Pre-K class in 2011. Liam is currently is Miss Olson’s 1/2 class. Our younger son, Heath, will start in Miss Connie’s class in the fall of 2014.

What volunteer roles have you been involved in at Armatage and how did you get involved?
I have been a room parent, done odd jobs in the classroom and with students, taken photos for communications, managed volunteer parent photographers, managed the silent auction for the Maude fundraiser, written feature articles for the Kanga, managed the Tears & Cheers coffee for parents of kindergarteners, managed the dinner for teachers during MEA week, and created marketing materials for the Pre-K program. This year, I’m co-managing the entire Maude event.

What have you gained from volunteering at Armatage?
I volunteer because I believe in supporting our community and I can’t think of a better place to give my time and expertise than to the school that is playing a critical role in shaping the minds of our children. What I get in return is a very special connection to the Armatage family of teachers, students and their adult family members. It feels good to make a contribution and I feel like I have a good parenting support system.
