    Room Parent Opportunities

    A room parent is a liason between the teacher and the class parents.  He/She helps with communication, volunteer opportunties and more.  Being a room parent is a great way to build strong relationships with the teachers and parents of your child's classroom.  It is a role that is appreciated by all...maybe most by our children.   If you would like to learn more, or are interested in becoming a room parent please email Rachel Motley at  Please be sure to include your name, child's name, grade and teacher.   Thank you!  Sign Up Here
