Selection of Room Parents will begin during the first few weeks of school. If you wish to volunteer for selection, please refer to either the August Brown Envelope, or the weekly E-News for the appropriate signup form.  Please note that selection one year does not guarantee placement for following years.


Once Room Parent selection is completed, an informational meeting will be held with all Room Parents.


Room Parents will earn twenty Volunteer Angel Points for this position. As with all of our volunteers, room parents must have all received their volunteer clearances and attended a "Protecting God's Children Workshop".
