Annette is getting no response from parents to volunteer

Annette and her mentor, Lee, were talking after school about the importance of getting families of her middle school students involved in their children’s education. Annette commented, “You know, this was such a priority for me in September, and here it is, already the end of October, and I’ve only had one parent even set foot in my room. In every newsletter I mention something about volunteering, but no one does. I wonder if parents in this community are just too busy these days with work and all their other responsibilities? How could I try to get other community members to volunteer?"
