Would You Like To Be A Homeroom Parent?
Welcome and Welcome Back!! Calling Everyone Who is Interested in Being a Homeroom Parent!

Please allow me to introduce myself! My name is Karen Barreto and I will be assuming the Homeroom Parent Coordinator position from Heather Stoeffler for the PTSA this year. I am very excited about this position and I am looking forward to creating homeroom parent teams within each classroom so that our teachers and students will have their best year possible.

I truly believe in co-homeroom parenting. It really opens the door to enjoying the position by dividing up duties and being able to choose to be a part of the classroom that best fits your personality and time availability.

The main purpose of a homeroom parent is to support the teacher with any special requests they may have and act as a liaison between the teacher and other class parents. Other duties, based on your teachers needs may include organizing class parties, distributing monthly emails about upcoming events, assist in Teacher Appreciation week activities, emailing classroom parents about volunteer opportunities and assist in creating a class Gala auction piece.

If you are interested in becoming the homeroom parent or co homeroom parent for your child's/children's class, or have any questions please contact me at

I look forward to working with all of you!

Thank you for all you do -

Karen Barreto
