Thank you for volunteering to be a room parent this year! This page will let you know the room parents responsibilities at Sycamore Creek. The information from the beginning of the year Room Parent Information meeting is here. Your track VP can answer questions at any time. 

  • Contact the families in your class to introduce yourself. Here is a Sample Introduction Letter.  Forward emails from the PTA for any events and signups throughout the year.
  • Create a class Shutterfly account for reminders and collecting class pictures. Shutterfly is a great tool to add things to the calendar and have automatic reminders go out to the families.  You can download Shutterfly information for 2017-2018. This is the way pictures are collected for the yearbook. Please add the email: to your site so the yearbook will be able to collect pictures.
  • Help teacher coordinate celebrations and lunches for Croc Mile and Super Crocs Day
  • Help coordinate the class t-shirts if your teacher needs a design and printer. Many people have used Instant Imprints. Here is their flyer.
  • Keep in touch with the teacher for classroom supplies that are needed
  • Collect class funds. Discuss with the teacher what their preference is for what to include. Most room parents have found that collecting money at the beginning of the year for all the events ends up being the easiest. Amounts are up to you and the teacher, but here are some recommendations and estimates:
  Class tshirt money ($7) Croc Mile lunch  ($4) Scholastic or Time for Kids magazines
  Parties throughout the year ($10) Super Crocs Day lunch  ($4) Teacher Gift for birthday and end of year
  Carnival raffle basket money  ($5) End of Year party  ($4) 4th grade NC celebration
