St. Teresa Class Parents
All class parents will be selected by random draw at the first HSA meeting. Every grade must have 2 class parents. Parents may not serve as class parent more than once unless no one else has volunteered/nor are class parents allowed to serve for the same child unless again, no one else has volunteered for that class.
