Basic Grade Reps’ Roles and Responsibilities
  • Send a welcome letter to all families introducing yourself at the start of the year.
  • Throughout the year, utilize Schoology and/or group email to communicate PA information to your grade-level families as needed. (Please note it is good practice to always use BCC on your emails.) In Lower School, representatives also connect with the teacher at the beginning of the school year. Depending on the teacher(s), Grade Reps may be asked to coordinate in-class parties and other volunteer activities during the year.
  • Plan two grade-level social gatherings during the year, a Back-to-School Party and an End-Of-Year Party. Funds for grade-level events are budgeted for and provided by the PA.
  • Coordinating a Spring Auction basket.
  • Help families in your grade-level navigate the year at MPA. This responsibility includes reaching out to new families, being available for questions from all the families at your grade-level and keeping up to date on events happening at MPA.
  • Communicating clearly with your fellow grade-level reps. There is no limit to the number of grade reps a class can have. It is up to each set of grade reps to connect and determine how the year’s responsibilities will be shared.
