Tips for Being a Great Classroom Parent
A class mom or class dad has a direct role in helping a teacher start the school year off right! Whether you’re a first-time classroom parent or a seasoned veteran, a great year for your classroom starts with some advance planning!
Remember, every teacher has different expectations. Some teachers will give you a yearly plan, laying out all the details for you to execute while others will let you run with the ball. Confer with the teacher and determine which style works best for both of you. Then be sure to use the free tools at SignUpGenius.com to make organizing your child’s classroom a snap!

I love to have the available to work along with all the teachers, aids, and the fabulous staff at LCE. I greatly appreciate the opportunity that has been given to me, to volunteer in my childrens classrooms, as a Room-Mom, as well to assist all special teachers as need so. I feel as a mother that participating in activities, help create Holiday parties, relieve teachers, for lunch, and recess duty is a way to learn much more about the classroom, and teachers, as well as giving all teachers a much needed break. I fell the involvement, is a great experience in building a realationship with both students, and teachers. I also believe, that you are creating a positive roll model, to both the classroom students, and as always being a part of your childrens daily activities, showing support, and love to all. Your child will smile the minute you walk in thier classroom. Which, is worth all the effort in being a LCE Volunteer to the classroom.Report Abuse
