South Orangetown Community Elementary Schools PTA

William O. Schaefer Elementary School ~ Cottage Lane Elementary School

2018-2019
SOCES PTA Class Ambassadors

Coordinator: Rana Park

PTA Class Ambassadors are the grass-roots of the SOCES PTA. You represent the PTA at the classroom level, working to share information and ideas between teachers, parents, and the PTA Executive Board. Ambassadors work with teachers to plan student events/celebrations in the classroom as the teacher deems necessary. The Membership Committee Chairperson acts as liaison between building coordinators, who in turn, liaison with class parents. The Chairperson works with the Executive Committee/Board and works to ensure all grade coordinators & class parents follow SOCES PTA policies/procedures.


For 2018-2019, William O. Schaefer teachers will pick Class Ambassadors.  SOCES PTA will have no involvement in the selection process, but will still train, guide & communicate with chosen Class Ambassadors.  If you are interested in being a Class Ambassador at WOS, please email your child's teacher!


SOCES PTA will continue to help in the selection process at Cottage Lane.  Please be sure to fill out the Friendship List Sign up below, and state your desire to be a CA!  If more than 2 parents ask to be a CA, the Membership Committee will hold a lottery for the positions.


I was selected as a Class Ambassador, now what?

If you haven't already done so, connect with your child's teacher via email and introduce yourself!  Ask what kind of activities/celebrations you should prepare for.  Does this class have a Halloween party? Thanksgiving Celebration? Winter Celebration? Etc
