Room Parent Volunteers
Room parents serve as liaison between the teacher and classroom parents during the year, and organize and take pictures at events and activities for the class. Each class has two room parents. As a courtesy to other potential room parents, a parent typically may not serve in more than one classroom per school year. Interested in serving as a Room Parent? You can sign-up during Back-to-School Sign-up (BSSU), or contact the Room Parent Chair.
