Welcome to the RGMS PTSA

The Parent Teacher Student Association for

Robert Goddard Montessori School

Dear Robert Goddard Community,

 

On behalf of the entire PTSA, I’m excited to extend a warm welcome for the 2019-2020 school year.  I look forward to catching up with all returning families and welcoming new families into our community.  As I enter my second year in the capacity of the PTSA president, I’m proud of the work done by many PTSA members last year and excited about the opportunities to build upon the foundation this year.  RGMS has a team of amazing teachers and administrators, a community of supportive parents, and a group of wonderful students. I’m grateful for the opportunity to get to know many in the community and being a part of a worthwhile effort to enrich the educational experience for all of our students.

 

The PTSA is here to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.  Our members support and speak on behalf of children and youth in the schools, in the community, and before government bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting our children.  The PTSA funds and subsidizes a range of education enrichment programs including field trips and assemblies, arts integration programs, purchase of classroom supplies, support of the various student clubs and sports teams.  Last year, we were able to disburse over $3,200 on a range of enrichment programs and events, reimburse our teachers close to $1,500 in personal expenses on classroom supplies, brought in close to 100 volunteers for 14 school events and programs, and held 8 fundraisers that bring our community together.  This year, we are setting our goal even higher.

 

Your support is critical in achieving the PTSA mission.  Our PTSA is made up with parents just like you. Among us, there are scientists, lawyers, teachers, students, entrepreneurs, healthcare professionals, etc. We stand collectively to ensure that our children are getting the most of their experience at RGMS.  By joining the PTSA, we are demonstrating to our children the importance we place on education.  

 

Some parents may feel that they don’t have enough time to come to the PTSA membership meetings or be at school during the weekdays.  We want everyone to know that there are many ways to help the PTSA, whether you have 30 minutes at night or a couple of hours on a weekend.  Your ideas, your time, and your voice are all truly needed. From participating in PTSA initiatives, you’ll find that you are more engaged with our wonderful students, getting to know other families, and enjoying the experience at the same time.

 

Please join me, the PTA board, and our entire community as we embark on the quest to ensure that our students reach their great potentials.  The saying that “it takes a village” is definitely true when it comes to all the achievements and wonderful things at RGMS. And with your help, we can strengthen our village and take it to new heights.  See you at the first PTA meeting on Wednesday September 25th at 7 pm.

Warmest regards,

Lei Zong
