For the last few months I have served as the “room mom” for Nicholas’ grade. I wish I had a room parent for my own classroom! Some of my responsibilities include:
- Calling and emailing parents for various reasons
- Designing and decorating bulletin boards
- Providing snacks and treats
- Organizing parties
- Coordinating volunteers
- Teaching “special” lessons
This allows me to contribute without taking too much time from work. But our school breaks are different from my son’s which gives me the ability to use a portion of my vacation to do some hands on work. I also collect BoxTops for education. What are ways in which you participate in your child’s education?
