Thank you for volunteering to be a Class Parent for your child’s classroom.
This is a unique opportunity to get to know and to serve your child’s teacher in ways that he/she will greatly appreciate. As the primary liaison between the teachers and students’ families, Room Parents initiate and promote the team effort between school and home that EES strives to have.
The key to being an effective Room Parent is communication: communication with the teacher to understand his/her needs and communication with parents where you coordinate filling the teachers needs. Your job is not to DO all the work but to delegate! Thank you so much for volunteering for this very important position. You provide a direct link between parents and the classroom. We couldn’t have such a strong school without your efforts. To assist you in this role, we have provided some useful resources in this Class Parent Menu.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Class Parent Coordinator: Lindsey Lieber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
