Room Parent Information Meeting

Would you like to be the Room Parent or Lead Room Parent for your child’s classroom?

There is an informational meeting on Wednesday, September 27 at 12:30 p.m. in the Marcy LGA for anyone who is interested in being a Room Parent or Lead Room Parent in their child(ren)’s classroom this school year.

The meeting will last about one hour. At the meeting, we will talk about roles and responsibilities of the Room Parents and Lead Room Parents, planning the classroom celebrations, communicating with parents via email, service projects, Staff Appreciation Week, yearbook photos, and we will nominate a Lead Room Parent for each classroom.

Each classroom teacher works with their assigned Lead Room Parent and Room Parents to plan the three classroom celebrations (10/31, 12/22, 02/14) for the year. Often times a teacher shares ideas for the snacks and activities that have worked well in previous years for their classroom. The Room Parents simply get to orchestrate all of the fun for the students. {No Pinterest experience is required…promise.}

If you are interested in becoming a Room Parent or Lead Room Parent but did not sign up at a Meet and Greet session and would like to attend the meeting, or you are interested but unable to attend the meeting, please contact Erica Altuve at erica_altuve@yahoo.com.

Thank you!
