Room Parents

Thank you for your interest in being a Room Parent! Helping out in your child’s classroom is a great way to get involved at school. You’re able to get to know the other students in your child’s class, as well as teach your own children that being involved at school is important to you, and in turn, it will be important to them. Many students also get excited when they see their parent in their classroom!

Kindergarten – Grade 5 will have Room Parents assisting in each classroom. These classrooms will have a Primary Room Parent contact who will act as the main communicator with the Teacher.  There is usually also a Secondary Room Parent.  Room Parents for the entire grade will work together when planning for the year ahead.

 
Grades 6-8 will have a Room Parent Team for the entire grade, complete with a Primary Room Parent Contact, as well as a Primary Teacher Contact. The Primary Room Parent Contact will act as the main communicator with the Primary Teacher Contact.  

RESPONSIBILITIES

Each Primary Room Parent should communicate with their assigned teacher to determine their responsibilities throughout the school year.  Room Parents for the ENTIRE grade should plan to work together to provide a cohesive environment.
