Room Parent Program
Being a Room Parent is a very important part of our CRS community and provides volunteer support to our teachers and our students. The Room Parent role will no doubt look different this school year than in years past, but it is still very much an important part of our CRS community. Although we aren’t able to be on campus, we still provide volunteer support to our teachers and our students to help cultivate a fun classroom culture. Room Parents also remain a part of a larger team of parents that work to support an entire grade level to keep everyone connected.

Room Parent Orientation
An orientation session with the Room Parents Coordinators will be held on October 1 (tentative date - to be confirmed). Following that orientation, teachers will meet with the grade-level parents to discuss plans for the year.
Note for 2020-2021: Although his role is still evolving, we see Room Parents helping to coordinate fun, special virtual events (think “Pirate Day”) and maintain open communication among our classroom communities. Room Parents also help monitor the new PTA Forums to keep the grade level conversations flowing and any questions answered. Your flexibility and creativity are needed this year more than ever to make our Room Parent Program a success! More details to come shortly!
Room Parent Responsibilities
(May include but are not limited to:)
Support your child’s teacher with classroom responsibilities that they would like to delegate by pooling volunteers.
Act as a liaison between the teacher, other grade-level parents, and the PTA.
Organize volunteers/hosts for student connection opportunities, such as a monthly virtual lunch bunch.
Maintain open communications between classroom teachers and parents via email and PTA Parent Forums.
Please involve as many parents as you can in all class activities throughout the year. Sharing responsibility builds our school community, encourages a strong home-school partnership for our children, and will make each experience easier and more fun!
