From the Desk of the PTSA President, Barbara Haas
August 23, 2017,
Hello Pharaoh Families and welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! My name is Barbara Haas and I will be serving as your PTSA president for the year. We have already been working to ensure that we have a successful school year. I’d like to share some of our goals.
Firstly, this year we will officially be switching from a Parent/Teacher Association (PTA) to a Parent/Teacher/Student Association (PTSA)! The members of the board last year felt strongly that, especially in high school, it was important to have student voices on this governing body.
Also, there are many ways to be involved at Richmond Community High School. The PTSA is one of those. It is our mission to create a bond within the school community. This includes parents, families, students, staff, teachers, administrators and other community members. In that effort, we have come up with a calendar of events for the school year that we hope will bring everyone together for the common goal of promoting the success of our children.
Success can mean many things. Of course, we want our students to bring home good grades. Now that they are in high school, we are looking towards college, and good grades are a part of that. But grades are not the only hallmark of a successful student. Happy and healthy also play an important role in the well-being of teenagers! A significant part of the high school experience is creating opportunities for our children to lead, grow and learn in environments outside of the classroom. Open communication between home and school can nurture those relationships, and the PTSA is your connection between the two.
Therefore, I encourage you to get involved. Our meetings are open to EVERYONE! Every membership is a vote in what happens at our school. In early September, sophomore, junior and senior students will have an opportunity to apply to be one of our PTSA student representatives. We have a calendar full of a variety of events that we hope you will attend. And we will have spirit nights at local restaurants throughout the year to raise money for our PTSA programs. Spirit nights offer the chance for us to get to know each other better, and a good excuse not to cook dinner!
Please review the list of events and make a plan to attend at least one RCHS event each month! I’m looking forward to getting to know you this year!
2017-2018 RCHS PTSA President
