Class and Grade Reps

Who are Class and Grade Reps?

Class & Grade Reps are the face of Parents’ Council at the classroom and grade level, and are a vital link between teachers, parents and Parents’ Council. We share the news about Parents’ Council fun and fundraising events and provide support to event coordinators by recruiting volunteers and motivating parent participation. We liaise with teachers, providing much needed help to organize parent volunteers and activities for the class. We help build our community; connecting with our parent body we share information, field calls, direct queries, socialize, inform with a positive and fun attitude.

We encourage all parents to consider being a Class or Grade rep for their child’s class. It is a great way to get involved in the school, to meet many families and to make new friends.
