Parent Teacher Fellowship
The Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) seeks to provide our families meaningful ways to serve our Academy community. We hope you'll join us.
Here is some important PTF info:
*At the Academy our families are asked to volunteer 10 hours. In the event those 10 hours are not met, parents are in turn to contribute $100 per unvolunteered hour, up to $1000, and do so at the close of the academic year. Hours are to be logged by May 01, 2023.
PTF has given us the opportunity to be part of our daughter's classroom throughout the year. We've (my husband and I) really enjoy getting to know the other students and faculty during our time at school. Volunteering is something we both really enjoy and our daughter loves when we come to help her classroom.
Join our 2022-2023 Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) team!
Choose to be a ROOM PARENT or a PARTY PLANNER
This is a fun way to get involved, be creative, and make a positive impact on your child’s year. (It’s also a great way to meet your required 10 service hours)
ROOM PARENT: Coordinates the following events with classroom parents.
Class Ambassador: Email communication coordinator between PTF, teacher, and other class parents. You will receive direction/templates from the Room Parent Coordinator.
PTF Meeting Attendance: As a room parent, we ask that you or someone from your class, attend all four PTF meetings (please review PTF Calendar for meeting dates and locations).
Wednesday Lounge: Last Wednesday of the month one or two parents will cover the classroom allowing for the teacher to have lunch with their peers. Room parents coordinate this coverage at the beginning of the school year using Sign-Up Genius. Time to be determined by your teacher. Additional coverage opportunities are dependent on volunteers.
Teachers’ Lounge: Once a year, each class is asked to coordinate a lunch for the teaching staff. If your class provides lunch, please ensure all items are pre-packaged during this time. Lunch should be laid out by 11:45am. Set up for approximately 30 people. $50 will be provided by the PTF for each class to help in the total cost. Please refer to the PTF Calendar for your assigned date.
Service Baskets: Coordinate with your teacher and put together a basket of snacks for assigned community workers in April.
PARTY PLANNER: Coordinates the following events with classroom parents. All parties need to be approved through your classroom’s teacher.
Holiday Feasts/Celebrations: Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine Feasts, etc. will be celebrated in the classrooms. Coordinate with your teacher about the plans and solicit help from the classroom parents.
Teacher and Designated Staff Member Birthday: Send out an email reminder to parents when your teacher and designated staff member has her/his birthday. See class packet for information and ideas.
Teacher Appreciation Week: Send out an email reminder to your class to help your teacher feel loved and appreciated. See class packet for ideas.
