Parents

Green Hedges’ believes the home-school partnership is crucial and provides parents, as well as their children, a rich and rewarding experience. Throughout the year, there are many great ways to get involved. Being active affords parents the chance to meet other parents and become an integral part of school life. There are occasions to meet every interest and availability.

Each class is assigned a Room Parent (RP) who serves as a mentor to new families as well as regularly distributing information on school happenings. Parents are encouraged to become involved in helping with classroom, Parent Association and Gala activities. Get involved as much as you can as your gift of time and talent enriches not only your child’s year but also the overall Green Hedges’ educational experience for all our students.

Parent Association (PA)

The goal of the PA is to promote school spirit and a sense of community through numerous events and programs.

The PA raises monies primarily through the sale of milk and lunch programs, dues, and other fundraising events. These monies are then used to support professional development opportunities for Green Hedges faculty, special programmatic initiatives like technology upgrades, cultural assemblies for students and social events for the school community.

The PA Executive Committee is comprised of a president, vice-president and room parent coordinator, secretary, and treasurer. The PA’s work throughout the year divides its efforts among various committees whose chairs are assisted by interested volunteers.

The PA relies on volunteers. Parents are encouraged to contact their Room Parent (RP) or a PA Officer to learn more about opportunities to participate. Each family is asked to consider volunteering for at least two (2) activities throughout the year. Volunteer opportunities are regularly posted in WAAG (Thursday e-newsletter sent to families) and sign-up sheets are available at several September school gatherings.
