PTA Board Members

Message from the PTA President

On behalf of the 2023-24 RCMS PTA Board, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to each and every parent, guardian, and staff member who attended our PTA Kick-Off Meeting this past Monday night. We were absolutely blown away by the amount of enthusiasm, support, and collaborative spirit being expressed. We loved hearing your thoughts and ideas, so keep them coming!

Some of the initiatives, concepts, and goals the board shared:

  • Our PTA’s commitment to becoming the bridge between families and the school with the common goal of supporting the educational and social-emotional needs and growth of all of our students. 

  • Partnering with the school administration to advocate on behalf of student needs to FCPS’s School Board. 

  • Using our fundraising to create fully sponsored programs and events that are equally accessible and inclusive of all RCMS families. (Including the 8th Grade Party)

  • Offering Teacher Mini-Grants to help support classroom based enrichment. 

Please consider being in “the room where it happens” and join us for our next PTA meeting on September 21st at 6:30pm. We would love to meet you and hear your thoughts and ideas on how we can best support our student community. It’s never too late to join, participate, and make your voice heard!

Again, thank you so much to all of those who attended the Monday PTA meeting and the OUTSTANDING response to our call for volunteers. We are elated and invigorated to be starting the school year off on such a high note!


Joy Charles, RCMS PTA President
