Are You Interested in Being Our Room Parent?

I am in need of TWO Room Parents this year. The PTO is requesting each class (Virtual and F2F) have TWO room parents.  Room Parent duties will be to help with communication between the teacher and class parents. They will help organize class parties, teachers gifts, etc. While parents are not allowed on campus at this time, restrictions may be lifted throughout the year, and room parents will need to be in place if that occurs.  If you are interested, please send your name, email and phone number to me and I will forward to Samantha Herington our PTO Vice President.  Thank you!
