Class Parent Resource Page

Thank you for being (or considering being) a Class Parent!


Your role is an important one that supports communication between your teacher and parents and you also get to plan the fun :)

The PTA offers various resources to help make the job easier and less time consuming. Check out files and resources on our Google drive: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1J-AofLQp5qCqLLJXnNrZ7QUZkrZAa8AY?fbclid=IwAR0f9jTZpLx3R66iVmTGGEcxFR91dkqLzaKkpAb_keJUV3vXevPjgU-ozQE
 
Here are some of the Class Parent’s responsibilities to be aware of:

Support the teacher - Most important part of the job! Chat in person, over email or schedule a call with your teacher to find out how he/she wants to be supported. That will give you an overview for the year.

Send a welcome/Introduction letter to the parents in the class - Once you meet with the teacher, you will have an idea of what this letter will say.

Plan class parties - For every grade, Valentines Day and Year End parties are scheduled by the school (see calendar). Other events are at the teacher’s discretion. You can keep class parties simple - a snack, an activity and/or craft and some music or even a movie. Coordinate/brainstorm with the other Class Parents in your grade. You can all do the exact same party! Kids and teachers will both be thrilled!

Organize teacher gifts - Completely optional! If you don’t organize a class gift, many families will do their own gift, so the teacher will be covered. If you decide to organize a collection, you can ask for donations all at once, or send an email closer to each event. Either way, giving parents notice is good. Mid-year and year-end gifts are typical. You could also do a birthday gift.

Plan teacher appreciation lunch
- Each grade takes a turn hosting a staff appreciation lunch. You and the other class parents in your grade will decide on a menu and put together a signup genius for food, volunteers and cash to support the function. Give yourself at least a month to plan this event. If any class parents have connections with local restaurants, that is a plus. (see calendar for the assigned luncheon date for your grade)

Staff Appreciation Week - This is a PTA sponsored event in May and daily activities are planned by the PTA. All you need to do is remind your class parents to support the PTA activities by making donations (snacks, gift cards) and participate (have your child write letters to teachers/staff).
