A Room Parent Is...

  • A support resource to the teacher and class during remote/hybrid learning.

  • A liaison between the teacher, classroom families and PTA regarding events and activities.

  • Required to be a PTA member (Dues at this time are TBD--please stay tuned for membership info).

  • Required to attend the mandatory room parent meeting at the beginning of every school year.

Each year, up to 4 room parents per class are selected to be Room Parents. We try to accommodate each request while also allowing as many parents to participate as possible. This year we are asking interested parents and guardians to use the online form below to request a Room Parent position. A valid e-mail address is required. 

Things to know:

  • Homeroom assignments should be viewable in RealTime Parent Portal by the beginning of school.  Once you know your child's homeroom and/or cohort, you can request to be a Room Parent by submitting the online form below. 

  • The online deadline for room parent forms is September 1, 2021.

  • The mandatory Remote Room Parent meeting will be September 15 at 7pm, immediately following the PTA General Meeting, via Zoom.

Thank you for supporting the PTA and the Merchantville students. If you have any questions please contact Monica Ruilova at
