There are many opportunities for you to be involved with your child’s class and we welcome you to join us!REMIND- "Remind" is an app that I used last year which was very helpful in sharing information and sending reminders to you throughout the year. You will receive an invitation and you can choose if you would like to participate. I will send a message when something needs to be sent in or as a reminder about a special activity. I found this very convenient because it will go to your Smartphone, so you will see it faster than you would an email. You and I can also message each other so it's an easy way to communicate and get information to each other quickly. I will send information regarding how to set this up during the first week of school.Room Parents - Room parents are responsible for organizing several parties throughout the year including a Halloween party, a winter party and a Valentine’s Day party. One room parent will be responsible for the collected party fees to be used toward the crafts and supplies, retaining and organizing receipts to be turned in at the end of the year. The other room parent will be responsible for counting the BoxTops collected by the classroom; these will be counted, bagged, and turned in by the contest deadlines. The room parents are also asked to act in an emergency making any necessary calls to other classroom parents.They will certainly need help in planning the party’s activities!! Sign-up sheets for food and paper product donations will be available at our Open House.Classroom parties - ** Due to a change in safety regulations being put in place by EA Schools, we will have to limit the number of attendees at our classroom parties. In the past, anyone could join us, but we have been told that it will change this year to provide a safer environment for our school. Each of you will get the opportunity to attend at least one party. I will share more information once I receive it...Anything special? - I have had a Yoga instructor grandma and Sheriff's deputy dad come in to share their knowledge and expertise. I love including the community and sharing firsthand information with my students. Please contact me if you or anyone you know would like to visit our classroom and share with the students.
PTO - The East Aurora Parent-Teacher Organization is also another great way to stay involved in your child's schooling. You will receive various information asking for your participation throughout the year. For more information, please click the PTO link for access to their webpage.
