Parent Involvement Matters

One simple, but important way to get involved is by being a Room Parent.  Room parents facilitate communication between parents and the teacher, school administration and the PTA and support teachers in needs that may arise. Most room parents plan and execute classroom parties and help with teacher appreciation efforts. We still have several classes without room parents: Allen, Leach, Jones, Boehr, Oberle, Burton. We'd like to give a huge shout out to our veteran Room Parent Committee Chair, Comica Shaw. She will be leading a meeting in the near future for all of our room parents to touch base and plan classroom Halloween parties. If you'd like to be a room parent contact Comica!
