Room Parents are the primary communication between teachers and the families of the students in each classroom. Throughout the year, class parents work with teachers to coordinate class celebrations like the Halloween Party, a Holiday Party and Valentine’s Day celebrations. In addition, Room Parents also coordinate with the class on classwide holiday and end-of-the-year teacher gifts, as well as Teacher Appreciation Week.
