A big THANK YOU to everyone who donated, pledged, submitted corporate matching, volunteered, or collected donations from family and friends! This is a huge victory for RMS! Once again we have hit a new record! We had 287 families participate in this year's Annual Fund and together, we raised $96,275! The money we raised will be used to enable the PTSA to continue funding amazing staff, programs, and resources for our children and school.
We had a blast at our PTSA Let's Get Social event last weekend! You can still join in the fun at our Sign Me Up events. Check here for availability.
The RMS PTSA Annual Fund Drive starts on October 15th and runs for 6 weeks. We have an aggressive goal this year as the PTSA is paying for real teaching positions. Without the PTSA funds our school would be understaffed and your kids' education and school experience heavily impacted.
A donation of $300 per student will help us reach this year's funding goal. We know that not everyone can donate that much. We believe we can still reach our goal if we get 100% parent participation so please please donate as much or as little as you possibly can.
It is for our kids
Save the date, Saturday, October 27th from 6:30 p.m. - 10:30 p.m. for our Let's Get Social party!
This is a great opportunity to hang out with other parents, caregivers, and RMS staff. This is your chance to grab those amazing Sign Me Ups that are hosted by parents, teachers and even our awesome Principal Mr. Stachon! There will be music, nibbles, beer, wine, and lots of fun! One of our fabulous parents, Tara Uziel, has opened her home to us at 2243 Fulton Street for this event. Please RSVP, so we can make sure we have the right amount of food and drink. See you there!
Welcome back for the 2018-2019 School Year!
