Class Parent FAQ

As Captain, can I go to any/all the parties?

NO.  Just the 2 parents from your class assigned to that party should plan and attend the party.

My teacher contacted Captain about chaperones for the field trip.  She needs 3.  Who gets to go?

Captain should contact CP #2 and #3 to see if they can go. If either/both can’t, Captain should move on the CP#4, then alternate 1 and so on until 3 chaperones are found.

There’s a second field trip and 4 chaperones are needed.  Who gets to go?

Captain should contact CP in the order they were selected to see if they can attend. CP #2, then CP #3, #4, Alt 1, Alt 2.  (and into Volunteers if necessary)

What do the Volunteers do?

Since the Volunteers usually do not get to participate in parties or field trips, they should be contacted first if the teachers need help in the classroom with other activities (primarily in lower grades).  Examples include the 100th day celebration, special “art” projects, International Day, etc…

Who plans the End of Year party?

With the teacher’s ok, generally any/all class parents, alternates and volunteers are invited to attend the End of Year party and can be involved in planning.
