Welcome to the Room Parent Page!

Volunteering to be a Room Parent is a wonderful way to get to know teachers, children and other parents. Room parent responsibilities include:

  • Working with teachers and other parents to plan classroom parties
  • Organizing and leading the actual parties
  • Helping to take yearbook photos at the parties.

 

We hope to have at least four Room Parents per class to support the parties for:

  • Halloween Party on October 31st 2:45
  • Winter Holiday Party on December 20th 10:00
  • Valentine's Day Party on February 13th 2:50
