Welcome, 2017-2018 parents!
Whether you’re just joining Roscomare Road or are a returning family, there is always something new happening at our wonderful school. Volunteering is a great way to stay informed and get to know the fabulous teachers and staff, your child’s classmates, and other families in the Roscomare community. Our kindergarten/TK parents especially benefit from the chance to be part of the classroom, see the curriculum in action, and give your child special memories of you together as they begin elementary school. Your efforts genuinely make a difference, and are truly appreciated.
Each year we look for 4-5 parents per class to serve as Room Parents, sharing the responsibilities that help your classroom run smoothly (and throwing the occasional party). Please let your teacher know the first week of school if you’re interested in joining this group. If you’re a working parent who can’t be on campus as much, no worries: There are still plenty of ways to involve yourself as a Room Parent, and flexible ways to divide up the duties, which include: photography, curating the yearbook pages, treasurer, managing the classroom Shutterfly sites, working closely with teachers to host Back to School Night and Open House Night, and sharing information to the other class families about upcoming Roscomare events and fundraisers. Click here for a more detailed description of how it all works.
There is a mandatory one-hour meeting for all Room Parents on Wednesday, August 30, at 1:30 p.m. in the Auditorium. We’ll review all this information, make introductions, and answer any questions you may have. If you’ve been a room parent in the past, thank you — and please still attend the meeting so you’ll be up-to-date on anything new, and can collect information specific to your class. Please be sure to consult with your teacher prior to planning or distributing information.
If you have any questions or need assistance throughout the year, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, and may it be a great one,
Room Parent Coordinator
