Parent Cooperative Jobs

Every family is required to sign up for one BJEP parent cooperative job per student registered.  Jobs range in responsibility, expense and time commitment. Each one is important to the success of the program.  Our community depends on all of our participation. It is essential that each family fulfill its volunteer obligation or find a replacement. Jobs are chosen at the time of registration.

As we are planning a number of special events to celebrate BJEP’s 50th year, we encourage families to sign up for an extra job or two.  We could use the help! A list of current jobs available can be found at Sign Up Genius Job Listing 2017-2018.

Room Parent 
This is a new year round position and we encourage flexibility and creativity.  You are the liaison between the parents in your class and the teacher.
Tasks include:
 – Arrange (1) grade-based parent coffee social during BJEP hours and (1) family event after BJEP hours either at BJEP or off-campus
– Communicate with teacher(s) about special projects or events in the classroom or outside of BJEP
– Each grade is responsible for assembling one themed gift basket to raffle off at the BJEP Hanukkah celebration as a 50th Anniversary Fundraiser. Communicate with grade parents asking them to donate a single item that fits the theme provided, soliciting donations from local businesses if desired, assembling items to create themed basket, and collecting raffle tickets from grade.

For example, if a grade is assigned a sports-themed basket, it may include a baseball glove, basketball, jersey and maybe tickets for mini-golf or to a Red Sox game. A basket for game lovers might include Pictionary, Monopoly, Catan, Connect 4, and other games, and maybe a Game Stop gift certificate. These baskets must be completed by Sunday, December 3rd to be promoted all week for the Hanukkah raffle on December 10th, 2017.
