We’re so glad you’ve volunteered for Room Parent. Once all hands are raised, we will work with teachers to finalize the room parents. Be warned – some classes will have many parents wanting to take on the role. If that’s the case for your class, then it’s possible the teacher might do a little lottery to choose just a few room parents for the job. And some classes might just have one or two raised hands for this awesome role. If that’s the case for your class, then get ready to jump in!!
We will also have a sign up at the Lakeridge PTA Welcome Coffee on the first day of school. To be inclusive of all the working parents/families, we wanted to ensure a way to sign up for all.
Lakeridge is committed to being environmentally responsible and that includes our classroom parties. Please take time to review the Green Party policy as we have switched to reusable party supplies to significantly reduce the amount of trash created.
Stay tuned for information about the Room Parent informational meeting after school starts. If your dreams come true and you are a room parent, you’ll need to be at this meeting.
Holler if you have any questions – I am here to help!!

Room Parent Class Fund Reimbursement Process
The PTA collected funds from each parent at the start of the year for each teacher’s class fund. This fund is to be used for class parties, recognizing the teacher’s birthday and an end of year gift. The PTA treasurer holds the funds and a room parent can request reimbursement using the form found here:
PTA reimbursement form
Receipts will be required and please consolidate your requests where possible as we have one amazing volunteer who is writing all the checks! Ideally limit to one request per party. Please contact the room parent coordinator with any questions.
