Party Parents


Class parties are sponsored and run by parents. The Halloween party will be held on October 27, the Holiday party will be held on December 22, and the Valentine’s Day party will be held on February 9. Parties will start at 2:15pm and end at 3:15pm.

We have a lead parent who is the Head Homeroom Parent and Party Volunteers who plan, donate supplies and run the party. If you would like to support the party in any way, please fill out the attached form, indicating where you can help.

Per the district’s requirements, all parents who would like to volunteer in the classroom must have their clearances on file in the office. Details for clearances are listed on

Head Homeroom Parent responsibilities

The Head Homeroom Parent (HHP) is responsible for coordinating classroom parties – Halloween, Winter Holiday and Valentine’s Day. This includes organizing volunteers, collecting funds or donations, creating party agenda and working with the teacher. The HPP also coordinates any teacher’s gifts given by the class.

Application Process: 

  • Any parent interested will need to fill out this form by September 27. Parents with multiple children must fill out a form for each child. If by chance a parent is picked in multiple classrooms, the PTO will decide which room the parent gets, based on need. No parent will be able to be HHP in more than one classroom.
  • A drawing will be held at the general PTO meeting on October 4 for HHP. If you are picked please plan to stay for a brief meeting after the PTO meeting. (You do not need to be present to be selected.)
  • Parent volunteers will be drawn by the HHP following the PTO meeting.
  • All the clearances must be on file by October 1 if you would like to be selected to be HHP. You must have your clearances on file with the office before you can be added to a party.
  • The PTO will publish a list of all people who have submitted their names to volunteer on October 1. Be sure to check that your name is listed under the classes where you want to volunteer!
  • Please be aware of all allergies and special needs when planning parties, guidelines will be available for the HHP.

Other Ways to Help: Donate supplies or other ideas. Please fill out the registration form if you are willing to donate to the party. Please visit the North Hills School District website, under Ross Elementary, under PTO for more ways to volunteer in our school.
