- Classroom Parents
- PFA Board Members
- Chairing All-School Events
Classroom Parents support the teachers in organizing parties and are typically a liaison between the teacher and other parents of students in the class. Each teacher's needs are different so Classroom Parents should discuss expectations with their teacher. In general, Room Parents typically organize class parties and teachers' gifts for Teacher's Appreciation, Birthday, Holiday, and end of year. Classroom Parents stays in touch with their teachers and communicate with other parents on behalf of the teacher, if needed.
All CVUSD volunteers must review, complete, and submit the below volunteer guide, and forms prior to volunteering.
