PTSA

A Message from PTSA President Kim Herbert

September, 2017

Happy Fall!  If you are new to RHS or a returning family, welcome to the RHS PTSA!  I wanted to provide you with a few highlights as to what the RHS PTSA has accomplished over the last school year.

  • Awarded eight scholarships to qualified seniors; we increased our scholarships by 2 last year
  • Sponsored “After the Fire” documentary and speakers to seniors for Senior Awareness Day
  • Sponsored a Robbinsville Junior boy for the American Legion Boy’s State
  • Give each class Student Council the opportunity to speak at our monthly meetings to give updates on what’s going on with their respective class
  • Participate in the Homefront holiday gift drive and backpack drive
  • Offer free seminars on current relevant social, economic or educational issues
  • Made a generous donation to the Steven J. Mayer Field House fund along with Sharon and Pond PTA’s
  • Sponsored and participated in Wellness Day 

While granting scholarships to seniors is our primary mission, we take pride in all we were able to do last year.  As you can see, this is a robust list of accomplishments!  All of these things would not be possible without our members, volunteers, teachers and students.

Our primary source of fundraising to finance these activities is through membership and our scholarship campaigns.  Participation in these two major fundraisers helps us do great things!  Our membership and scholarship drives are currently in full swing.  Please take a moment to fill out the membership form and return it to the main office.  One of the criteria to be eligible to receive a scholarship is the student and or family member has to be a PTSA member for the student’s entire duration at RHS.

We also offer some easy ways to help the PTSA.  We hold monthly restaurant socials; annual holiday poinsettia sales and senior lawn signs for our graduates. All details for all ways to help the PTSA are on our website. Please check back frequently as we may offer fresh ideas throughout the school year.

We encourage you to attend our monthly meetings which are posted on the school website.  All meetings are held in the RHS Media Center at 7:00pm unless otherwise noted. 

Membership forms, scholarship donation forms, Easy Ways to help the PTSA and meeting dates can all be found on our website @ http://www.robbinsville.k12.nj.us/domain/130

We look forward to working with you all and wishing everyone a very successful 2017-2018 school year!

Sincerely,

 

Kim Herbert
RHS PTSA President
