Volunteers Help Our School!

WELCOME,

 Research shows that students whose parents are involved in their school get better grades, do better on tests and have fewer disciplinary problems at school.

 What is your talent?  Community outreach, back to school activities, spirit gear, RAM Perks reward program, assisting with the book fair, the Reflections art program, fall donation drive, visiting author receptions, or providing items for events like our teacher/staff luncheons, intercessions and State testing.

 While you DO NOT need to be a member of PTSA to be a volunteer, we would like to invite all adults AND students with an interest in RMS to join and have a voice in how PTSA funds are used to support RMS.  Volunteer forms are in the back to school packets or may be found on the Forms page.
