SUNQUAM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PTA
PTA CLASS PARENT INFORMATION
2017-2018

Class parents are an integral part of the Sunquam PTA program and we appreciate anyone who is willing to assume this responsibility. As a class parent responsibilities may include: selecting chaperones for class trips, selecting parents to assist with classroom celebrations, making phone chain calls for happenings in the classroom or school wide events, and most importantly, to communicate PTA information to the parents in the class.

Please remember, the PTA has many committees, activities, and events that also require parent involvement. Being a class parent is only one way you can be involved in your child's education.

Please keep in mind the following guidelines and class parent responsibilities prior to submitting the PTA Class Parent Selection Form attached. ALL FORMS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY 9/8/17. There are no exceptions!
