Brown Envelope and News Brief

Brown Envelope and News Brief

Every grade level is assigned a month that the parents are responsible for “filling” and “emptying” the Brown Envelope. The Room Parents for each grade have the responsibility to solicit parent volunteers from their grade level at least one week before their monthly duty starts. There must be at least two volunteers provided for both days (first and second school day of the week), yet preferable 4-5 volunteers on the "filling" day (first school day of the week). The more volunteers available, the faster the Brown Envelopes are ready for distribution. It is suggested that the Room Parents contact the parent volunteers to remind them the day before their assigned duty.  It is the Room Parent's responsibility to make sure there is enough coverage of parent volunteers from their grade to assist with the Brown Envelope for their assigned month. 

 “Filling” of the Brown Envelope startsbetween 8:30am and 8:45am and “Emptying” must start at 8:30am on a Scrip Week.  It is very important that all brown envelopes be thoroughly checked on the “emptying” day since important school correspondence, forms, and TIP order forms are placed in the Brown Envelope.

If there are any questions regarding Brown Envelope duty, please contact the Head Room Parent Coordinator.
