Parent Volunteer

Please sign up here as parent volunteer to help co-host the classes:

For the 3rd to 5th grade online zoom classes, due to the big class size, we need parent volunteers to help co-host to maintain classroom discipline. As a co-host, you need to:

  • Join Mr. Lin's zoom class 5 minutes before class starts (7pm), sync with Mr. Lin and let him put you as co-host.
  • During the first 15 minutes, when there is a join request from a student, you will see a pop-up window, and a button to approve that request. You will let in all students first.
  • In the next 15 minutes, please remove unregistered students from the Zoom meeting. You can check all students’ names with the name list we have shared with you through email and remove anyone who is not in the list. We require students to join the zoom meeting using their full name. If the student uses a different name, please give them a warning first. If they don't change in 3 minutes, please remove them from the class. You can allow them to join back after they change to their full name.
  • We do not expect and will not approve students joining 20 minutes after class starts, except that, in case any students join late because of power or internet problems, please add them into the class after checking their names. 
  • Please stay in the class till class ends (8:30pm).  
  • If the online class is too noisy, remind the class to mute when not talking, and only open their mic when they need to interact with Mr. Lin.
