Have you ever thought about being a volunteer in your child's school? Moms in east Arlington have taken that to a whole new level.
Five days a week, Debrah McCullum, Yadira Aguilar and Noelia Perez are at Crow Elementary School. McCullum created a system to make copies of class work the teachers need much more efficient. Aguilar and Perez make the 300-500 copies and deliver them to each teacher.
All three women have children in Crow Elementary and they said it's important for them to help the teachers and all of the children. They said having their kids see them in school everyday let's them know that school is important.
Nelda Acosta is the principal and told me she believes in building relationships with parents because it goes to the good of the school and therefore the kids. During her two years there she's grown the volunteer program from one day a week to five days a week.
Acosta said everyday she thanks the moms for the enrichment they bring to Crow. Whether it's a tray of cupcakes for a classroom birthday party, helping a teacher in the classroom, working in the lunchroom or making hundreds of copies of class work...every volunteer act makes "Cougar Country at Crow Elementary Pawsitively Successful."
