Room Parent Coordinator 2018-2019 Nadine DeFrenza Room Parents 2018-2019 Room Parents by Class Room Parent Materials Room Parent Handbook 2018-2019 2018 - 2019 Loop Duty Schedule Volunteer Description The primary role of a room parent is to provide support and assistance to the teacher. The room parent(s) should talk with the teacher about how he/she would like to work with room parents, parent volunteers, and other classroom help. Every teacher's needs are different! Then, using that information, the room parent(s) can develop a plan for the year that directly addresses the teacher’s unique needs and preferences.
As a team, the room parent(s) are responsible for:
Facilitating classroom parties (planning, communicating with parents, running the events, cleaning-up)
Coordinating classroom volunteers (creating sign-up, coordinating the class loop duty, helping facilitate a schedule, communicating the schedule to parents, confirming volunteers before their shifts to ensure full participation)
Organizing drivers for field trips (overseeing sign-ups, confirming volunteers, checking with parents and the office to be sure all district-required Driver Information Sheets are on-file for drivers before the events)
Planning, communicating, and acting on teacher appreciation activities (birthday, teacher appreciation week, end of year gift)
Helping to ensure clear, timely communication between the teacher and parents regarding activities, events, and needs in the classroom
Assisting with classroom-related administrative tasks, such coordinating student book orders or helping with special projects
Responding to and/or organizing assistance for ad hoc requests (e.g., classroom clean-up days, requests for supplies)
Please note: Specific responsibilities may vary by teacher.
