Rombout PTO News
The next PTO meeting will be on 10/4 at 7 pm in the RMS Library. As a reminder, all RMS parents, caregivers, and staff are considered members of the PTO. As a PTO member you are part of the RMS family, a committed group who work together to create a nurturing, supportive environment where students can shine - academically, socially, and emotionally. Being a PTO member does not require you to attend meetings or volunteer. Although we really hope you do!
As a member of the PTO we hope that you will consider volunteering and making a donation to our group to help carry out our functions. Please check out our website, Romboutpto.org, to sign up for PTO updates and information and to make a donation.
We are looking for some parent and staff volunteers to help us at our West Point Concession stand fundraiser on 10/15. This is an all day event as we will be working a concession stand at the West Point Football Game. We will be arriving at West Point by 8am and should finish around 5pm. Please email Romboutpto@gmail.com if you can help.
