Interested in Volunteering at RGMS?

All classroom volunteers and chaperones must undergo fingerprinting, a background check, and review important safety videos.  Volunteers engaged in one-time special events at the school typically do not need to complete this process, however, it's not a bad idea to get it done!

Information on fingerprinting and background checks is here.  Fingerprinting must be completed at least 15 business days prior to chaperoning or volunteering.

Videos are available here.  Please be sure to return certificates of completion to the school office or your child's teacher.

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

Fingerprinting is not required for any of the below opportunities

Email us to let us know how you’d like to get involved!

 

Financial Review Team:  A requirement to operate as a PTSA is to conduct an annual financial review. During October, we need ONE MORE volunteer to review the books from the last fiscal year. This is a one-time volunteer task that should take 2 or 3 hours for the reviewer. The review must be conducted by October 25. You do not have to be an expert, but it would be especially easy for those who have accounting or bookkeeping skills, or if you excel at balancing your family checkbook. The review is an inspection of the books and bank records to validate that we are maintaining good financial management as a charitable organization. Executive board members are ineligible to volunteer.

Scruffy Storytime: The PTSA will host weekly bedtime stories by scruffy family members in the RGMS community. COVID hair is encouraged! We need a dad to help facilitate and schedule these reading sessions!

 

Fall Fest: Each fall we have a Fall Festival. We need a parent to set up a Fall Padlet board for our children to share their fall family traditions with their RGMS community.

Editor/Designer: Our weekly emails need some razzle dazzle! Anyone interested in turning bullet points into a more eye catching and informative design?

 

Website architect: We need to get all our up-to-date information on our website in a timely fashion and make it more user friendly. Who’s in?

Parent Classroom Rep: We need parents to support our teachers: offer tech support, organize classroom parents, develop classroom wish list with teacher, help process PTSA reimbursement, organize teacher appreciation efforts, communicate virtual PTSA events, encourage PTSA involvement/membership, etc. 

Parent Tech Support: Our fellow parents are struggling with Google classroom, Zoom, Ipads and Chromebooks. Do we have a tech savvy parent who is interested in leading a weekly RGMS Community Zoom Tech support session? The PTSA can schedule the Zoom, we just need a facilitator. You can start asking/answering questions on the RGMS Tech Q&A Board. Tag a friend if you think they have the answer! 

 

Fundraising Chair: Lead a committee of parents to raise funds for Teacher Supplies, Appreciation and Community Events. Individuals can also volunteer for a specific task like:

  • Setting up a restaurant night at their favorite establishments

  • Writing end of calendar year and end of school year appeal letters for online fundraising

  • Setting up other fundraising events like a virtual silent auction, virtual yard sale, etc. We need creative ideas that will work in these times!

 

Dancing with Dudes Moderator: We need you to set up a padlet board for community posting, finalize evaluation processes and tabulate results so we can promptly announce winners.

 

Advocacy Committee Members:  Advocacy is an important part of the PTSA's job in making the educational environment better for our children.  The RGMS PTSA Advocacy Committee could use a few more hands.  We need help to follow county school budgets/policies, educational advocacy groups and state education legislation, and to organize parents to act when needed. If you are interested in participating in the committee please email Advocacy Committee Chair, Joseph Jakuta, at rgmsptsaadvocacy@gmail.com
