What is the Classroom Champion Program?
As part of Families for Equity and Justice, the Class Champs program mission is to support equity and justice at Burroughs by engaging all families through inclusive classroom and grade-level events. The program hopes to coordinate free, low-barrier, and most of all FUN out-of-school activities that bring together kids and families. It also provides an informal parent-to-parent information resource that helps keep all families informed and included in life at Burroughs.
How does the program work?
Class Champs will coordinate 2-3 free, simple, extracurricular events per year for the classroom (K-2) or grade (3-5). They will also provide families their contact info for questions regarding life at Burroughs, and will make an extra effort to be a warm and engaging presence at activities - a guaranteed friendly face.
What is the program NOT?
Class Champs are not room parents, party planners, or classroom volunteers. They aim to add as little extra work for teachers as possible, asking teachers to forward 3-4 emails per year to families and distribute 2-3 fliers per year.
