The Room Parents (parents only please-no assistants or nannies) will be decided by lottery. You may not be a room parent for the same class two years in a row unless there are no other volunteers. We would like every parent to have the opportunity to participate over the course of their child’s tenure, if they wish. Please realize this job requires a significant time commitment. The room parent lottery will take place after the children’s class placements have been determined. You will be notified in the August mailing.
