Room & Grade Parents

  • In an effort to provide various ways for families to stay connected and informed, the PTA has created: grade level social coordinators. These roles exist to meet larger, grade-level needs while the room parent still serves the needs of an individual class and teacher. It is the PTA’s hope that between these roles, families will have easy access to school, grade, and classroom information.


    Grade Level Social Coordinators:

    The social coordinators (two per grade) will help coordinate community-building activities for an entire grade. This person is responsible for scheduling various activities for an entire grade. The social coordinator may want to set up a standing park playdate for families and children in an entire grade. Ideally, this person will also schedule several adult-only events for parents of an entire grade to meet and socialize. There is no expectation that the social chair host events at home or be solely responsible for making an event happen; this is simply a coordinator role.
    Our Grade Level Social Coordinator are:
