Room Parents are the link between school and home, informing parents of what's going on in the classroom and what they can do to help.
So You Want to Be a Room Parent?
Room Parents play an integral role in the communication process as a liaison between the teacher, BSC, and the parents. It is a particularly important role in the 2020-2021 school year as we head into distance learning. This year, in addition to the normal activities of a room parent, we've added a few additional responsibilities to promote community during distance learning, so please make sure to review our Room Parent Interest Form carefully. We would like to set-up all of our Room Parents for success, starting with expectations that allow us to choose the best candidate to support and assist our teachers, students and families.
Please go to bit.ly/bscroomparentform to complete an application if you are interested in being considered for the Room Parent position at Balboa Magnet. This form will take the place of our usual selection process during the volunteer fair, which is currently on hold due to the pandemic.
If you have any questions, please email Kristen Fujitaki,VP Communications, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
