Room Parents and Grade-Level Social ChairsIn an effort to provide various ways for families to stay connected and informed, the PTA recruits and coordinates the efforts of two different volunteer groups: Class Parent Leaders and Grade-Level Social Chairs! Social Chairs help us to meet larger, grade-level community-building needs while Class Parent Leaders serve the needs of individual classes and teachers. It is the PTA’s hope that between these roles, families will have easy access to school, grade, and classroom information.
Grade-Level Social ChairsSocial Chairs (typically two per grade) help coordinate community-building activities for an entire grade. Social Chairs are responsible for scheduling various activities for an entire grade, like setting up regular park playdates for families and children in an entire grade. Ideally, Social Chairs will also schedule several adult-only events for parents of an entire grade to meet and socialize. There is no expectation that Social Chairs host events at home or are held solely responsible for making an event happen; this is simply a coordinator role.Sign-ups for Social Chairs will happen through Membership Toolkit beginning at noon on August 7, 2023. Contact information for the social chairs will be shared here once confirmed, so please swim back soon for that information!For more details about Social Chairs, please contact Tiffany Torbert.

The four Class Parent Leaders are:
