We hope this letter finds you doing well after an amazing summer and looking forward to the Fall! RMHS has lots of exciting things happening this year and we cannot wait to be a part of it all. We cannot do it without all of you. If you have any suggestions we would love to hear them. We are looking forward to your involvement with the school, whether it is attending PTO meetings, supporting an academic competition, artistic endeavor, or athletic event.
The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is open to all RMHS parents and guardians and provides the school with much needed financial and advisory support. The PTO meets quarterly and depends on your participation to discuss vital school issues and raise funds for student programs. Information about meeting dates and other activities will be posted on the PTO section of the school’s website, as well as the RMHS PTO Facebook page.
PTO DUES (different from Class Dues) - $50 per family (not per student) You can certainly donate more (or less) - this is a suggested starting point. You may submit your $50/$55 (the $5 is to cover fees if you prefer to send via PayPal) annual dues via PayPal using the online link https://bit.ly/2MnjShb or mail a check to the Attn. RMHS PTO - RMHS Main Office, 62 Oakland Road. Also, we will plan to accept credit card payments at Back to School night on September 28th. The PTO is a 501(c)(3) organization and dues are tax-deductible. We are happy to accept additional donations or matching gifts from your employer.
In recent years dues have provided funding for:
● Class account donations
● funding for after school RMHS library hours
● books and resource materials for the RMHS library/media center
● enrichment programs and speakers
● scholarships for graduating seniors
● staff appreciation events
● Outdoor picnic tables for lunch
● ice cream for freshmen orientation
● ceiling fans for 4th floor
This year we will be helping with HOMECOMING - which we are super excited to see at Reading Memorial High School - more details to follow.
Please join us for Quarterly PTO meetings this year held on Wednesdays at 7:00pm in the RMHS Library. Meeting dates are October 19th, January 18th, March 15th & May 17th. Meeting agendas generally include featured speakers, timely topics, and updates on the school and the PTO.
We look forward to seeing you soon,
The PTO Board: Alexis Eliopoulos O’Mara, Deanna Dodge, Linda Kiene and Rebecca Schromm
