At WES, Room Parents are an integral part of helping classrooms be successful.
At the start of each school year, your child's teacher will inquire about interest in various volunteer oppotunities. Please let your child's teacher know if you are interested in being a Room Parent. Room Parents are arranged by your child’s teacher. There may be one or there may be several for one room as it is the teacher’s choice as to what will work best for the classroom.
Room Parents will organize celebrations and volunteers for various events/activities for their particular classroom or grade. These activities may or may not include crafts and treats.
Room Parents provide information to the classroom families in regards to class needs, school & PTA related activities, teacher appreciation info, newsletter, teacher gifts, etc.
Room Parents are encouraged to enlist the volunteer help of other parents in the classroom.
