At PS 340, we encourage parent participation. Volunteering as a class parent is one way to become involved with your child’s class and school. At the beginning of the school year, your child’s classroom teacher will ask for two parent volunteers to serve as the class parents for the year. The primary goal of a class parent is to assist the classroom teacher, and to help foster a feeling of community among the families in the class. Please know that being a class parent does not require daily, or even weekly, involvement; however, they provide important support.
