Classroom Parent Representatives

Contact: Sarah Christopher

Being a parent rep can mean different things in different classrooms. Teachers are happy to have any help, including part time parent reps. The main reason we have parent reps is to build community — to make sure that people feel welcome, that families learn about events, and that people know who they can turn to when they have questions.

Any family member can be a parent rep—you don’t need to speak English or have email, and it is fine if your family is new to King Open.

Volunteering to be a Parent Representative in your child’s classroom is a great way to get to know other families and contribute in a meaningful way to the King Open community.

If you are interested in serving in this role, please let your child’s teacher know or contact Sarah Christopher.
 
Here are different aspects of our role:

  • Meet with the teachers at the beginning of the school year
  • Share your enthusiasm for the KO curriculum with the parents in your class
  • At the beginning of the year, make a directory of families in your classroom, and make sure that each family has one.
  • Remind parents of class events and make sure that each family can attend
