We are excited to announce the official roll out of The Volunteer Hours Tracker in Google Spreadsheets.
When you are ready to start using it, the sooner the better, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the email that you would like to register. You will then be emailed the link to your spreadsheet, and you can share it with other family members that also log hours.
If you have current hours from the paper logs, you are welcome to log them as “carry over” on the top line to include with this year's total hours. We would like to encourage all families to use this tool, but will leave the paper logs available to those that are unable or prefer them.
Please remember that 40 hours of volunteering per parent is a school requirement, and the PTO only facilitates the tracking. One easy way to get many hours is to use the King Soopers Card ($200 recharge = 1 hour) or make direct donations to the PTO ($10=1 hour). See our website for more ways to contribute and 80+ ways to get 80 hours.
Logging your hours is important, because total hours of volunteering are a factor when the school apply to receive external grants.
Any questions or comments are welcome as well. We hope you find this tool useful and user friendly.
