Room Parents and Classroom Volunteers

Room Parents and Classroom Volunteers

One of Whittier’s many strengths is our vibrant parent community. Each classroom has a Room Parent volunteer who:

  • assembles parent helpers for classroom parties
  • assists with Teacher Appreciation Day
  • coordinates teacher birthday recognition and teacher gifts
  • recruits parent chaperones for field trips, as needed
  • helps communicate PTA information to fellow parents
  • provides miscellaneous help to teacher as needed

If you are interested in volunteering as a Room Parent (or co-Room Parent) for the school year, be sure to contact Room Parent Coordinator Barb Ruta at barbruta@yahoo.com

Room parents are set within the first weeks of school.
