Room Parents are appreciated Hilburn Hawks! Hilburn Academy's Room Parent Program, administered by the PTA, helps our elementary classroom teachers throughout the school year.
Teachers appreciate parent volunteers! Classes may have multiple RPs if the teacher would like. Though each teacher's classroom is different, signing up to be a Room Parent means you are willing to help in three main ways.
Room Parents who sign up to volunteer have three key responsibilities:
1. Room Parent Newsletter: The Room Parent Coordinator emails you brief school news and links on Mondays, and RPs add an "In Your Classroom" portion before emailing it to the classroom parents on Wednesdays.
2. Learning Experiences: RPs will work with the teacher and other parent volunteers to plan and volunteer for classroom learning experiences. Most classes have three to four learning experiences per year around holidays and end-of-year. They include students making a craft, doing something educational and having a snack.
3. Teacher Appreciation: Room Parents are the point person to organize group gifts for elementary classroom teachers and staff at the winter holidays and end-of-year.
