 Owen Room Parent Responsibilities


First, on behalf of the Owen PTA board, THANK YOU!! We truly appreciate your help organizing and facilitating events run by the PTA for the benefit of our Owen students, families and staff. Please let us know if you have any questions throughout the year and please feel free to reach out to us if you need help with any of the following responsibilities, we want this to be a fun and rewarding experience!

Initiate Communication

Please introduce yourself to the teacher and other families in our class via e-mail. Feel free to include as much or as little as you want regarding the upcoming events you will be contacting them about, and to make yourself available to be a resource to communicate any concerns or questions people may have with the PTA board.

Curriculum Parties

Each Room Parent will work together to coordinate with the teachers to plan and organize supplies for the Curriculum Parties. Room parents will also coordinate parent volunteers to help with each party. 

Teacher Gifts

Holiday gift for your teacher (optional)

If you choose, you can coordinate a class gift by asking the parents in your class if they would like to contribute. Check your teacher’s favorites list for places and things your teacher will love!

Teacher Appreciation Week (1st week in May)

The PTA recognizes our fabulous staff throughout teacher appreciation week in various ways including breakfast, supply drives and gifts. We also want to include the children in showing appreciation so we will need your help organizing your class with school wide days such as homemade thank you cards, pictures of favorite memories and flowers.

End of the year gift

Say a big thank you for all your teacher has done this year! You can collect money or gift cards from interested families to purchase one or more gifts. Again, the favorite sheets should help out! Another nice idea is compiling a photo book from pictures you and other parents have taken throughout the year. All ideas are welcome, with Pintrest, anything is possible!            

Recruit Volunteers

You may be asked to help recruit volunteers for your class for the following PTA run events:

       Resale, Winter Party, Curriculum Parties, Publishing Centers (Kindergarten and 1st Grade)
