When you volunteer, you are paid in love and gratitude.

Baldwin Room Parent Volunteers

Thank you to the parents who volunteered to be a room parent!

There are a few classrooms without a room parent. If you are in room 102, 202, 208, 210, 212, or 307, your teacher and your classroom community would love your help.

Room Parents help ensure that classroom parents are well informed and comfortably included in their children’s school experiences throughout the academic year. Room Parents act as "ambassadors," whose primary focus involves welcoming new and returning families in an effort to keep the Baldwin parent body connected. Support the classroom teacher and coordinate parent volunteers for class snack, field trips, parties, and activities. Please let Susan or Audrey Day-Williams know if you are interested or if you have any questions.
