Thank you for volunteering your time as a Room Parent! You provide an invaluable service to Garrison Mill. In addition to coordinating class centers and participation in school programs, our Room Parents are the main source of communication between the GMPTA, your teacher, the administration and the parents in your class.
Important Reminders & Resources
Documents from the Room Parent Informational Meeting on August 2, 2016
Crucial to have your Parents register for the GMPTA.org website! This is the source of the Student/Parent Directory and the origin of all email communication from GM and their student's classroom(s). The PTA's new website will also be the go-to place for events, activities, registrations, and purchases for all of Garrison Mill's PTA-sponsored programs and events.
Register once, and BEE in the loop all year long! For a "how-to-register" information sheet you can share with your parents, please click here.
- All documents that you distribute to your parents must be approved by Joanne Fleming (in the front office) prior to copying. Please allow at least 24 hours for approval.
- Email Communication is done through GMPTA.org. Start at the Dashboard link, top right after login to GMPTA.org OR click here.
To access the website dashboard and generate an email to your class, please click here.

Your classroom directory is generated from the GMPTA.org website and requires all of your parents to register and add their student.
Room Parent Class Directory (you must be logged in to access)
To access the admin interface for your directory, please click here and select your teacher.
At this time, you are only able to View the directory, please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a file in Microsoft Excel. The excel file will contain all information listed on the Directory screen, including name, email, address, telephone contacts for both Parent 1 and Parent 2.
Please note that all GMPTA.org registered users are able to access the entire GM Directory via the website & the Membership Toolkit App, however only Room Parents can sort and view by classroom/teacher.
