Dear Central Parents:

The Central School Parent-Teacher Organization is looking forward to your help with educational and entertaining activities for all of our children at Central School!

Please review the volunteer opportunities listed on the following pages. Check the committee(s) that interest you, and return the form by Thursday, May 3, 2012. New for 2012: you can submit your form online.

Submit your application online

The committees require varying time commitments, some of which are perfect for working parents or those with young children. You will find some that need assistance on one particular day or event, others that have recurring needs throughout the year. Chances are there is something perfect to fit your schedule that will allow you to become involved in your child’s school and help us strengthen our Central School community! Training is provided with pleasure.

Attendance at PTO meetings is not required to be a volunteer, but it is a wonderful way to learn about new endeavors at Central, to meet fellow parents, and to spend time with the principal and superintendent. Meetings are generally the 2nd Friday morning of each month. Additionally, at least two evening meetings will be held during the school year for those unable to attend daytime meetings. We encourage you to attend the meetings whenever possible.

Please e-mail us with any questions you may have. Thank you in advance for your continued interest and support.

Sincerely,

Paula Fudacz (1stvp-paula@centralptonews.org) and
Amy Mooney (1stvp-amym@centralptonews.org)

Reminder: Room Parent form submissions due by May 3

Dear Central Parents,

Room parents are needed for all Central School classrooms for the 2012-2013 school year. Your involvement will make a difference! Decades of research shows that students with involved parents tend to thrive in the classroom, score better on standardized tests, and have increased confidence and better behavior. Even if you have limited time, becoming involved at school benefits you, your child, and the school. Each classroom has a Room Parent team, which includes a lead room parent and helper room parents, as follows:

  • Lead room parent – in collaboration with the classroom teacher, organizes and plans classroom activities, including parties and field trips, and coordinates classroom photos of such events for distribution to the yearbook committee. The lead room parent also coordinates teacher gifts and may communicate news from the classroom and the PTO. In addition, the lead room parent provides support to both the Library and Cultural Arts Program in several ways, which include scheduling Readers during classroom library time, as well as coordinating and scheduling volunteers for monthly Cultural Arts classroom presentations.
  • Helper room parents – help the Lead Room Parent as needed with the responsibilities noted above, and may also be asked to chaperone field trips and assist with classroom events, including classroom parties, the Cultural Arts Program and classroom library time. Helper room parents may provide snacks, beverages or paper products for a class party or they may assist with other projects at their convenience. (Please note that younger siblings are not allowed to participate in school field trips, classroom parties, etc.)

Around the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year, room parents will be notified of their assignment. A gathering may be planned to discuss responsibilities, catch up on news, and to socialize with friends. Moms, Dads, and Grandparents are welcome to volunteer as room parents. If you are interested in participating as a Room Parent, please complete this electronic form by Thursday, May 3, 2012.

Submit your application online

Should you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Warmest regards,

Paula Fudacz (firstvp-paula@centralptonews.org)
