"Sometimes the most ordinary things are made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people" is a quote I heard a while ago about room parents and it hasn't changed during my teaching career."
- Todd Davis, 5th Grade S.T.E.M. Teacher
"As teachers we love to have extra help in many ways. We appreciate that room parents help us to keep organized and "give" us the precious value of time that we often do not have in the school day. You get to meet other parents as you plan some of the fun activities throughout the school year."
- Susan Kob, 4th Grade S.T.E.M. Teacher
