Be a Room Parent
Take an active role in your child’s classroom and get to know other parents by becoming a Room Parent. Room Parents serve as a liaison between classroom teachers and parents by facilitating communication about events, field trips and classroom needs, coordinating volunteers, collecting and distributing class contact information and assisting with other needs as they arise.
Prepare Snacks for the Students
Through participation in the SF Food Bank’s Morning Snack Program, Daniel Webster is able to provide healthy snacks for all students Monday through Friday. The healthy snacks provided include fresh oranges, bananas, apples, granola bars and more. It takes between 30 and 45 minutes for one person to prepare snack for the whole school. This includes washing/cutting fruit when necessary and distributing to the classrooms. Optimally, two parents volunteers per day.
Donate an Item
Classroom teachers always have “wish lists” so please be sure to check their posted list or ask the teacher or your Room Parent what they need. The PTA provides all classrooms with supplies and focuses on providing supplies for the entire school so if you notice a need, mention it to a PTA leader.
