Room Parents



Parents of WUES students 

Assist your child’s teacher by volunteering to help with the following list of activities. Of course, teachers will personalize the duties to suit their class needs.

  • Communicate information to classroom parents regarding classroom and other school events.

  • Collect and keep track of class funds and t-shirt orders.

  • Assist the teacher with Open House by making volunteer sign-up sheets available. After Open House, issue a class roster.

  • Organize preparation of class donation for WUES Auction.

  • Ensure that volunteer time slots for the Carnival booth assigned to your class are filled.

  • Work with other Room Parents to plan the Grade Level Party, the Grade Level Program and any other Grade Level projects.
