Over 2300 hours logged on TIS Volunteer Counter!

Thank you to the families who are recording their volunteer hours on Volunteer Counter! By March 1, 2010, I would like to complete the transition from paper record keeping to Volunteer Counter.  At that time, the volunteer notebooks will be removed from the classrooms.  If you have already recorded some volunteer hours in the notebooks, please remove your page and enter those hours into Volunteer Counter at www.volunteercounter.com/LogHours.aspx?Org=TIS or www.intlschool.org/volunteer.

Volunteer Counter is an on-line tool designed to match volunteers with opportunities, opportunities with volunteers, and to record the number of hours given in service to the TIS community.  It replaces the volunteer log notebooks presently in every classroom. TIS families will simply need internet access to log on to the system to record volunteer hours on-line.  Emails were sent to all TIS families in January requesting you to activate your account.  If you did not receive an email, please contact TIS parent, Richard Foote at VolunteerCounter@gmail.com.

Once in the Volunteer Counter website, please:

  1. Review your information and make any corrections

  2. Add your phone number if you wish to be contacted by phone in addition to email

  3. Choose a new password if you wish (or you may continue to use the password generated by the system)

  4. Important - Select the volunteer opportunities you would like to participate in (or have already participated)

  5. If you have volunteered this year, but have not recorded your hours in the notebook, please record your hours on Volunteer Counter

  6. If you have recorded your hours in the notebook, please remove your sheet from the notebook and enter your hours on Volunteer Counter

Thanks to everyone for your service to our school. Your efforts help make TIS an amazing learning community!
