2015-2016 Room Parent Volunteer Information

Welcome back to school! We are excited to welcome all of the new and returning Elementary South families, and know we will have a fantastic year ahead! We hope you will consider getting involved being a Room Parent.

This year we are going green! All interested volunteers will need to sign up via the Sign Up Genius link , no later than Friday, September 11, 2015. Party assignments will be emailed at the end of September, along with detailed party procedures, a party manual, and a link to an online toolkit.

A Room Parent Coordinator will be assigned to each party. The Room Parent Coordinator initiates contact with other room parents and confirms the party plan with the nurse and teacher. Additionally, up to three volunteers will be assigned to each party to assist the coordinator. It is the responsibility of all volunteers to play an active role in planning the party in which they attend.
