Frequently Asked Questions About Being a Room Parent

Q: What exactly does a Room Parent Do?

A: Room Parents are the “point people” in communication between the PTA and teachers to students’ caretakers. Some of the main duties include: soliciting volunteers for PTA events, arranging holiday/appreciation gifts for teachers twice a year, compiling class lists, sending out classroom needs, and reminding families about upcoming events.

Q: I don’t have very much extra time. What is the time commitment?

A: When polled, past Room Parents reported that they spent more time brushing their teeth each month than performing their Room Parent duties. The average time commitment is approximately 1 hour each month but can be more if you desire additional engagement.

Q: Once I sign up to be a Room Parent what happens next?

A: Once you commit, you will have the support of the Cornell PTA. All Room Parents will be part of an email list where the PTA will send you easy-to-forward communications. Teachers will communicate directly with you to guide you through their needs. If you have any questions we are always available to help.
