Homeroom Parent (HRP) or Grade Parent (GP)
All Early Childhood, Elementary and Middle School classes have Homeroom Parents (HRPs) and the High School classes have Grade Parents (GPs).
HRPs fill a crucial role in the classroom. They are the liaison between the teacher and VSPA for the other parents. First, as the teacher’s liaison, the HRP will assist the teacher in disseminating important class information to all parents, coordinate classroom parties and events, such as scheduling mystery readers and fieldtrip chaperones, plus keeping a photo/video diary of classroom activities. Secondly, as a VSPA liaison, the HRP will assist the VSPA VP in disseminating information about upcoming VSPA events. It is vital that each classroom has a parent (or two parents) to fill this role.
Being a HRP is a rewarding position and one that gives you the opportunity to get to know the families in your children's home room. To be a HRP, register your interest at the Sneak-a-Peek session the day before school starts at the beginning of the year or email us to contact your VSPA Vice President.
