    OHES Room Parents

    Thank you very much for volunteering to be a Room Parent. On the bottom, you will find five documents that will be useful to you throughout the next year. It’s very important that you open all the file attachments and save them to your computer disk drive.  The files are:

    1. Room parent guidelines
    2. A room parent letter to classroom parents requesting volunteers
    3. A letter used to request donations for a teacher gift (holiday and/or year-end)
    4. An excel spreadsheet for volunteer data
    5. Room party activities/games ideas

    Please keep in mind that you will not get reimbursed by the PTA (or by anyone) for room parent expenses. Please consider this when planning for the parties.

    You should request all food and drinks from the parents.  Please contact the teacher to find out about class allergies/dietary restrictions and make sure the parents are aware of it and abide by it.

    Note:  All room parents are required to be PTA members. As a PTA member, our PTA insurance covers all paid members. Being a room parent is under the PTA umbrella, since we coordinate and run the parties and activities.  Therefore, room parents need to be members in order to be able to participate in our programs and also be covered under our insurance, otherwise it's a liability for the MES PTA.
