What is a room parent?  A room parent is a volunteer who serves as a helper to both the teacher and the parents of the class.  It is a great way to make a difference in your child’s class, while providing support for your teacher.  Two room parents are needed per class and are selected by lottery.
Some responsibilities include:
-Create a class list for contact purposes throughout the school year.
-Communicate teacher needs for volunteers or supplies.
-Help with and/or solicit volunteers for special classroom events, copying or administrative tasks as needed.
-Coordinate with PTA event chairs (Holiday Fair, Memory Book etc)
-Select Holiday Fair classroom basket theme, collect and organize donations and Holiday Raffle packets and attend basket wrapping event in November.
-Photography of classroom events for Memory Book.
-Attend the room parent information meeting on Tuesday   9/13 at 7PM.

If interested in placing your name in the room parent lottery please contact Linda Lee with your name and classroom teacher by this Friday 9/9.   Notifications will go out over the weekend with room parent meeting on Tuesday 9/13 @ 7PM in the Flo Ro cafeteria.
