Thank you for volunteering to serve as a Room Parent!
Due to the unpredictable nature of this 2020-2021 school year, it is tremendously appreciated that Room Parent volunteers are flexible and accomodating in the description of this position. Any additonal responsibilies or changes to current responsibilities will be reasonable and appropriate in their request. Please note, due to smaller class sizes this year there are two designated Room Parents per class.
A few responsibilities are certain:
(more detailed information to explain responsibilities to be shared after sign-ups)
-A responsibility new to Room Parents this year will be to act as a contact for the Family Groups that the PTO has formed. Room Parents will help in funneling important information to the Family Groups.
-Room Parents will organize teacher gifts twice a year. (December and June) Teacher gifts consists of a monitary collection towards gift cards typically, and are given from the class as a whole. Additional ways to say "thank you" that are creative and thoughtful in design, involve the students in some form and do not require a monitary contribution, are encouraged as well.
-One Room Parent will be the designated liaison between the class parents and the Classroom Teacher. This Room Parent should form a group email address list by Monday, September 7th, as it might be necessary for the Room Parents to reach out to the rest of the parents of the class early on.
-One Room Parent (does not have to be liaison) must be designated to be the "photo collector". This person will recieve all photos that the teacher finds suiting to share with the Yearbook committee. The "photo collector" will then be responsible for passing these photos along to the Yearbook committee.
*The determination as to whether Classroom Parties can take place will be decided at the time school returns to "in-person".
-If it is decided that Classroom Parties can take place this school year, Room Parents will plan and execute three class parties. (Halloween, Winter and End of the Year) Dates of parties are determined by the times offered by the Classroom Teacher. More details to follow at a later date.
-If it is decided that Classroom Parties can take place this school year, one Room Parent will fill the role as photographer by taking photos of parties to pass along to the Yearbook Committee.
*Sign-Ups for Art Parent and Social Hosts are on hold at this time.
*Class volunteer sign-ups start 8/25/20, 7:00 AM*
*Questions? VP of Volunteers, Elizabeth Stoker, [email protected]
Also, please ignore the date 2/2/2222. This volunteer role lasts the entire school year, yet a specific date was required. So, we picked an irrelevant date.
