The Mission Statement of KCSMA is to provide a safe, positive, learning environment that inspires strong character and challenges all students to aspire to their personal best. As a Room Parent, you will play an invaluable role in helping to achieve this goal.
Being a Room Parent is no small task. You will be expected to commit to the following:
•Attend Room Parent training in August and subsequent Room Parent meetings as needed.
•Meet with your teacher at the beginning of the year and throughout the year to establish needs and responsibilities. This will include completing a Teacher All About Me form, determining important class dates, and volunteer needs.
•Coordinate volunteers for recurring in-class activities (mystery readers, table helpers), one-time class activities (project activities, class parties and field trips) and at home activities for the class (cutting, sorting, laminating).
•Recruit volunteers for PTO lead activities such as BoxTop collections, Basket Auction and Fall Festival.
•Coordinate with other grade level teachers and room parents to complete a grade level service project, ie. School grounds clean up, writing letters to service men and women over the holidays, collecting items for senior citizens.
As you can tell, there are many fun and exciting things planned for the 2017-18 school year. Room Parents will be asked to Communicate, Organize, and Delegate. But most importantly, we want you to have fun; enjoy getting to know your teachers and fellow parents; and cherish watching all of our kids grow and succeed.
If you are interested in being a room parent, please email firstname.lastname@example.org stating your name, child’s name and child’s grade. Before the start of the school year, updates will be provided regarding training dates.
Let’s get ready for an amazing year!
