PTSA Class Parent Program for 2022-2023

 

Welcome back to school!

 

We hope that you will consider volunteering for the role of class parent in your child’s class.  Whether you choose to be a Head Class Parent (HCP) or an Event Coordinator (EC), your efforts are appreciated by the children and staff.

 

There are one HCP and two ECs for grades K to 4th.  For 5th grade, each class has one HCP assigned to work collaboratively with the 5th-grade affairs team.  There is also one HCP per grade who volunteers to be a Grade Level Coordinator for grades K – 4. 

 

The role of a Head Class Parent includes:

  • Meeting with your teacher early in the year to review your teacher’s needs for the school year.

  • Coordinating with the ECs for class events.

  • Assisting in communications to parents as requested by the teacher and PTSA.

  • Supporting the PTSA’s fundraisers and events.  HCPs are required to volunteer at the Spring Fundraising Event for a minimum of 2 hours.

  • Recruiting volunteers as needed for PTSA events.

  • Collecting class funds at the beginning of the year for class events and retaining and disbursing funds as appropriate.

  • Collecting money for and purchasing teacher gifts following suggested PTSA guidelines.

 

The role of an Event Coordinator includes:

  • Helping to plan and run class events as directed by the teacher.

  • Supporting the PTSA’s fundraisers and events.  HCPs are required to volunteer at the Spring Fundraising Event for a minimum of 2 hours.

 

A Grade Level Coordinator will:

  • Coordinate and schedule all grade-level activities such as field days.

  • Act as a liaison between the HCPs and the Grade Level TEACHER team leader.

 

If you want to be a HCP or EC , please return the attached form by Wednesday, September 21, 2022. You may return the form to your child’s school or email it to elizabethrosegillespie@gmail.com.  You may also complete it online here.

 

Please submit one form per family even if you have children in both DW and FEB. You MUST complete the Volunteer Application  AND be a PTSA member for the 2022-2023 school year to be selected as a HCP or EC.  Volunteer applications can be found here and you can join the Rye Neck PTSA here.

 

It is likely that you will participate in only one of your children’s classes, so please list your children’s names in order of priority.  HCP and EC lists will be finalized about 2 weeks after the forms are received.
