Room Parents

Teachers recruit Room Parents at the beginning of the year to serve as the parent liaisons for their class and lend special help to the teacher like making copies, communication announcements with parents, classroom parties, organizing gifts from parents for teacher birthdays and staff appreciation week, recruiting volunteers for field trips, etc. Room parents are also encouraged to coordinate outside of school meet ups to build community within the class and school.
