What is a Room Parent?
Room parents are the main liaison between your child’s teacher and the families in the classroom and the PTA. As a room parent, your job is to assist the teacher as needed in disseminating important information from the teacher and PTA, and to organize selected classroom events, such as the winter holiday party, book parade, and end-of-year celebration.
Email/hard-copy communications with parents during the school year. Specifically, room parents would need to coordinate help for school events and special projects in the classroom
Coordinator of funds collection for school/class activities
Help teachers getting volunteers for activities
Some of the events room parents help coordinate include: Field Day, Winter Holiday Party, Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week, and the Book Parade.
The PTA has the tools and information Room Parents will need to fulfill the role. If you decide to become the class rep, talk to your child's teacher during open house. We will collect information from teachers, so we know who to contact after that. In addition, if you decide to take on this role, we will be sending an electronic copy of your class contact list, and more information about communication tools and resources, as well as other special things to consider.
