Parents’ Club Volunteer Opportunities

To be successful, each of the Rossman School Parents’ Club activities needs committee members. Below are brief descriptions of the volunteer opportunities available for the 2018-2019 school year. You are encouraged to sign up for as many committees as your time allows. And if you have an interest in leading a particular committee, don’t hesitate to let us know. This will be our only request for chairs.

Parents’ Club Committees

Organize an opportunity for parents to engage in a book selected by the Head of School. The Book Club meets once a year over breakfast to discuss the book and enjoy the various perspectives of the Rossman community.
Be a part of the team that sells Rossman pencils, clothes and much more to our darling children. You can help by working one day a month for less than a half hour at the start of the school day.
The Book Swap is a fun, free way for your children to stock up on books for summer reading by swapping up to three books. Volunteers are needed to help collect books at morning carpool, sort and set up books, and help the children make selections the morning of the Book Swap.
Help bring diverse, interesting and fun programs to students two or three times a year. Work with the Upper School Director to select and plan these presentations for the entire student body.
Bless the people who take care of our children by volunteering for the Faculty/Staff Appreciation Luncheon. Be part of the planning team or help the day of the event by setting up, serving or cleaning up.
Coordinate this popular fundraiser with photographer Barbi Macon.
Coordinate and promote our annual spring plant sale with a local nursery.
This is the Parents’ Club’s biggest social event of the school year. Many volunteers will be needed to make this event a success.

Deck Rossman’s halls and get our community in the spirit for the winter holiday season.

Work with the Librarian to keep things running smoothly in the library.
Enhance the Rossman School Family Program by coordinating a fun event for “Rossman families” to enjoy together after school. Each Rossman family consists of a faculty facilitator and students representing a variety of grades.
If you love to get that red pen out to correct typos or just to be the first to get the latest scoop, join our editing team. Help prepare articles for Rossman’s weekly newsletter.
Write articles and organize a week of special events that support an environment of wellness at Rossman.
Work closely with the teachers to coordinate class parties, field trips and any other events that involve parents.

Two Room Parents are needed per class for JK through fifth grade, one parent of a boy and one parent of a girl. Sixth grade requires 5 or 6 room parents.
