Room Parents



What is a room parent?
Room parents work closely with teachers to help make a fun and successful school year for everyone. Room parents are a critical support for classrooms.

We would like to have 2-3 room parents for each class, so if you are worried about doing it alone, the responsibilities will be shared.


Room parents have the support of:

  • Room Parent Coordinators Megan O'Connor
  •  A school-wide network of other room parents (most years, we have over 50 room parents!) 

Together, room parents:

  •  Share information and resources with each other and with families of children in the class
  •  Learn from our experienced and new room parents alike
  •  Coordinate efforts within and between grade levels
  •  Coordinate class events, parties, and other fun stuff with teachers
  •  Coordinate class gifts and gifts to support staff throughout the year

Our goal is to develop positive relationships with our teachers, and build strong communication and support among our parent community.

Ready to help?
Let your teacher know at Back-to-School night, or via email at any time, that you would like to be a room parent!  If you already agreed to be a room parent and have discussed it with your teacher, please email us so we can add you to our list.


If you’d like to learn more about room parents, have questions, or want to offer your talents, please get in touch.
