At the beginning of each school year a form is sent home to families in order to gauge interest in becoming a class parent. There will be one class parent chosen per class. Teachers will communicate with the class parent about class celebrations. Class parents are free to enlist the help of other parents as the need arises.
The role of the class parent is as follows:
Organize class celebrations or events.
Support the teacher/PTA in maximizing parent involvement at AEA.
Class parents must maintain student confidentiality at all times. Do not discuss any student with anyone. Your role in the classroom during a celebration or event is one of support. Teachers will send down all slips of interested families and if there is more than one interested parent, administration will randomly pick a parent to serve for that given year.
Throughout the year, we have many opportunities for families to volunteer their time, donate supplies and share their resources. We are so grateful for a generous and willing community! If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out this form and a staff member will follow up with you shortly: AEA Volunteer Form
Some opportunities include:
- join a committee (events, fundraising, community outreach)
- help organize areas in our school building
- donate supplies for special school events
