Room Parent Update
We are proud to announce that we have a Room Parent for every class at Blue Mountain!  Thanks to all of the wonderful people that volunteered to be room parents this school year! 

Here are the highlights of the Room Parent Program:
1)    Room Parents will collect money for a teacher gift  from the class two weeks before winter break and two weeks before the end of the school year. 
2)    Class parties will still be organized by the room parent.  Party materials will be donated by parents in the classroom.
3)   The Room Parent Coordinator is Kat Whitt. Her email address is
We hope these changes alleviate the burden of parents making multiple large donations at the beginning of the school year and enables parents to spread their donations out over the entire school year.  This change will also prevent room parents from holding large amounts of money for a lengthy amount of time which protects everyone involved.   In addition to donations being anonymous, they are also voluntary.  We are excited about the changes to the Room Parent program and hope you will be too!  Please check out the PTO website to see more information about the Room Parent Program.
