PTA / Room Parent Info

Hello AGIS families!  We are looking to help our classroom teachers as they create a virtual community this year during online learning.  We are looking for parents who can serve as Room Parents to be the liaison for our teachers and families.  The Room Parents will work with the classroom teachers to determine their role.  Each teacher may have different needs, asks, etc.  Please coordinate your efforts with the teacher.                This may mean:

* Creating a class directory

* Helping to send information out to families

* Helping with virtual class parties

* Sharing information about PTA events, projects, etc.


Room Parents:  Please only take on this role if you are willing and able to be active in keeping the lines of communication open between the teacher and families.  We will be depending on you this year!  J  The PTA will occasionally send info directly to you to then share with families in your class.  This will include Teacher Appreciation events in the spring, any events we may need help “spreading the news” like our Fall Virtual Scholastic Book Fair, etc.  Our Room Parent chairperson, Erica Gallagher, will be your contact person if you have any questions or suggestions.  (


**We understand that a couple or a few parents may also want to work together to fill this role.  On the Sign-up Genius, there will be spaces for up to two people for each teacher.  Please feel free to work with your teacher’s “switch class” Room Parent as well.

**Please note:  For this year only during online learning, we will need Room Parents for 3rd thru 6th grade classrooms.


Our hope is that it connects classroom communities more closely during this time of online learning.  If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to our Room Parent chairperson.  

Here is the UPDATED Sign-up Genius link:


When you sign up: please include your name, email address and student name in the comment section.  This is how your classroom teacher will reach out to you to set up how your role will look in their virtual classroom. 


Note:  Any information that is shared by the classroom teacher with the Room Parent is not to be shared and is considered confidential.  The AGIS PTA Room Parent Chairperson will have the contact info for the Room Parents so that she will be able to connect and share information.
