Roeper Parent Community

    • Banner

Our mission is to build community among Roeper parents and guardians and deepen understanding of the Roeper Philosophy.
The Roeper Parent Community (RPC) accomplishes this by encouraging volunteerism, organizing and hosting social and community events, offering parent ed classes & guest speakers, and serving as a channel of communication between parents and the school.

Current parents and guardians are automatically members of the RPC.

We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Helping in the classroom, at events, or joining a parent committee are just a few ways to stay engaged. Contact the RPC to learn more.

RPC supports a wide variety of parent education opportunities on topics ranging from Social Emotional Needs of Gifted children (SENG) to DEIJ seminars (SEED) to affinity groups, and many more. Please look to the online calendar, The Roeper Record, and the RPC Facebook page for the latest information about upcoming events.

Annual Events

List of 4 items.

  • Coffee Talks

    Several times over the course of the school year, we host Coffee Talks with a keynote speaker who presents on a wide range of topics such as parenting, child development, gifted education, issues of social justice.
    At the beginning of each Coffee Talk, RPC officers announce upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, and other important school news.
  • Lower School Events

    RPC hosts many events throughout the year for Lower School families. Some favorites include Trunk or Treat and fall and spring family events. The entire family is always invited, and events are free of charge. Food and fun are always included.
  • New Family Gatherings

    These gatherings are always changing and may include a dinner for parents or a road rally for the family. They are hosted by our RPC New Family Liaisons and typically take place on campus in October. Always offering conversation and connection, these informal events give our new families an opportunity to meet each other and Roeper administrators and to learn about our parent group leadership.
  • Roeperfest

    Roeperfest is our annual back-to-school ALL-SCHOOL festival. Taking place in early fall, this is a wonderful opportunity to engage with the entire Roeper community.

    Roeperfest also serves as a fundraising opportunity for our Middle & Upper School Student Groups. Student-run booths offer food, beverages, and treats. Funds earned help cover the costs of club activities and class trips. There are also many free activities for kids of all ages, including bounce houses, slides, and a rock-climbing wall.
