ROOM PARENT

Thank you so much for helping our school and our teachers and volunteering to be a Room Parent this year!

We hope you were able to attend the Room Parent information meeting on Friday Sept. 14 in the

Inspiration Room.

 

Here is some information regarding being a Room Parent. 

 

Overview of the Room Parent Position

  • Budgeting

  • Class Parties

  • Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6th- May 10th)

  • Teacher Birthday

  • Communication Liaison for PTA/CEF events (Carnival, Gecko Run, Dinner Auction, etc.)

  • Adopt a Family

  • CEF Basket for the CEF Dinner & Auction (April 6th)

Where to begin?

 

  • Meet with your teacher- discuss class parties, timing for parties, needs for the classroom or classroom projects, review food policy and allergies. 

  • Bring Request for Classroom Funds letter (see below) if the teacher wants to review, get a class list and emails from your teacher.

  • Review Teacher's Favorites List (most should already have received an email about their teacher's favorites)

       and find out your teacher’s birthday.

Helpful Tips for Parties

 

  • Keep it Simple!

  • Decorations aren’t necessary.

  • 4-5 Stations per party (Kids LOVE games and crafts).

  • Follow the food policy. 

 

Please let us know if you ever need any help along the way. We are here to help!

 

Being a Room Parent shouldn't be a scary position!
