So I have my very first field trip coming up, and tomorrow I need to announce the chaperones.
I can take two, and six want to go.
I am feeling so guilty and I don't know who to pick!!!!!!!! :(
Should I go with...
- the mom who works a lot and would probably appreciate a day to spend with her kid? Her kid is also INCREDIBLY well-behaved, which leads me to believe that she can definitely handle a group of kids.
- the stay-at-home mom who is super nice and volunteers at school? She has helped me out with a few things in the past. I love her daughter even though she is a little wild...
- the single working mom who only has one kid? She might not have a lot of other opportunities for field trips!!
Or should I just assign everyone a number and use Random.org?? Haha!
What is your school policy on choosing chaperones? Do you ask for volunteers and choose randomly? Do you ask for volunteers and "choose randomly" (that's what we do!!)? Do you call parents ahead of time and never ask for volunteers (that's what my student teaching school did)?
Help me out here!!
