Roycemore Family Association

The aim of the Roycemore Family Association (RFA) is to continue building the close community the school nurtures. The RFA helps welcome new families to Roycemore and provides many volunteer opportunities and events that help engage families. 

All Roycemore Families are encouraged to volunteer, you are a member of the RFA simply by being a Griffin family. Many volunteer opportunities will be published in a general call for volunteers to the community of parents, guardians, and grandparents. These may include chaperone duties, concessions, events, storytimes, class projects, proctoring exams, gardening, or other fun opportunities to immerse yourself in Roycemore school. Parents, guardians, and grandparents are welcome to volunteer cross-divisionally.    

 

The RFA has many different ways to be involved including: 

Roycemore Family Association Chairs 

Roycemore Family Association Class Representative 

Parent Ambassadors 

Parent Admissions Team 

Parent Annual Fund Captains 

Auction and Scholarship Dinner Committee

 

Roycemore Family Association Chairs

Roycemore Family Association Chairs provide the leadership to the RFA. The chairs will be representative of one or more persons from each division of the school, Early Childhood, Lower School, Middle School and Upper School who will work together to create all school events, coordinate volunteerism, conduct divisional social gatherings and communicate with the Roycemore community. An administrative Chair and a Volunteer and Communications Coordinator will be elected from this body to set and manage the annual budget, to set meeting times, and to create consistent communications regarding events and recruitment. The Chairs liaise with the Director of Development on a regular basis and will meet at least quarterly. 

 

Roycemore Family Association Class Representatives

The Class Representative is the “Room Parent” and directly assists the teacher in the classroom with field trips, social events and classroom activities. The Class Rep will be called upon to distribute information regarding these events. Class representatives are also responsible for coordinating the creation, purchase of supplies and finishing of the class gift to be presented at the Annual Scholarship Dinner and Auction.

 

Parent Ambassadors are the first to be called on for volunteer activities. Additionally, Parent Ambassadors are recruited to and encouraged to become a welcome wagon for new families, touching base throughout the year to help new families acclimate to the Roycemore community.
