What do I need to be a classroom parent?Bottom of Form

A classroom parents need to register and complete the online volunteer form. http://harmony.voly.org, once registered and orientation has been completed please email Mrs. Cruz at kayla.cruz@harmonytx.org so that your classroom assignment can be processed.

Classroom parents will be at a first come first serve basis and once all classrooms are filled, parents will be put on a waiting list, until a vacant position is available.  

You will NOT be assigned to your son/daughters classroom as we feel it will be a distraction to your child.  

We ask that you keep in contact with the teacher that you are assigned to, and if for whatever reason you no longer wish to be a classroom parent, we ask that you let us know so that we can reassign another parent.

Classroom parents will be required to attend PTO meetings once a month. Classroom parents will be a member of PTO and will follow the same by-laws.
