Room Parents


The primary responsibility of a Room Parent is to help your child’s teacher with classroom support and community building. Each teacher and grade uses Room Parents and volunteers differently, so please consult your child's teacher for specifics about your classroom. 

Start of school: Room Parents are “Room Leads” on Konstella, our tool for communicating, organizing events, and creating signup sheets. Invite all parents to your Classroom. Sometimes the teacher takes the lead with collecting parent emails and then shares the list with the Room Parents. A brief Konstella training will be provided at the beginning of the school year, soon after Back to School Night.

Teacher Support: Liaise with the teacher, and communicate teacher support needs to the class via Konstella as they arise.

Class/Grade Activities: Create community by coordinating with other grade level room parents to plan grade-wide events or class events.

Parent/Family Support Building: This is up to the class needs, and could include coordinating playdates, organizing a meal train, or other parent/family support activities.

Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week: During this week in early May, coordinate special gestures for your teacher from the kids and parents, such as personal notes, a gift basket or takeout lunch.

Teacher Gifts: Coordinate a year-end teacher gift from the classroom. Generally this entails some type of memento of the school year and a gift card from the class parents.

Thanks for considering being a Room Parent. It’s an important job that makes a huge difference to your child's teacher, the PTA, and most importantly, all our kids!
