 What is a Room Parent?

As a Room Parent, you are the liaison between the PTA, parents, teachers, and the children in the classroom. You keep parents informed of activities and encourage their participation, as well as ensure that all children in the classroom enjoy and benefit from the many classroom activities and special programs planned for the year. With your help, these various events will run smoothly. 



That’s it for this week’s news from school, have a tigerrific evening.
