September Update

Thank you to everyone who attended the September PTO meeting. We launched a new website thanks to the help of Tim Sweeney-Fanelli. We added a “donate” tab that links to our PayPal account and information on spiritwear and ongoing/passive fundraisers. We also added a resources tab with links to TeacherEase (grades/assignments). lunch menus, athletics schedules and other helpful information. Please let us know if you have any feedback or suggestions for the website!

– We talked to Hannaford RE: Hannaford Helps Schools and learned that the program has transitioned to an app – similar to “Box Tops” – and is held in the Spring. RMS is on the donation list so we will send information to parents RE this fundraiser at that time.

– We are in the process of reaching out to local attractions such as Everett arena RE: hosting grade-level “fun nights” at their locations. Let us know if you have any other ideas for “off-campus” events or would like to help with this.

– We are currently looking for 8th grade parents to serve on an 8th grade celebration/graduation committee as well as any parents who are interested in being the chair or helping with Teacher Appreciation days. Please email us if you are interested.

– The next PTO meeting is Tuesday October 17th at 6:30PM and we are going to have the assistant principals speak about RMS discipline procedures/behavior protocols before the meeting. As always, you do not have to stay for the entire meeting.

Thank you again and please reach out if you have suggestions, questions, feedback etc.

Message from the PTO President

The RMS PTO was revived in the spring of 2023 after a brief dormancy period during the pandemic. We are are looking forward to the 2023-2024 school year and hope to host informative speakers, informative programming, and community events. Right now the largest fraction of the PTO budget goes toward improving the RMS environment and helping staff and teachers. In the spring of 2023 the PTO coordinated “Teacher Appreciation Week” with four days of food, gifts and other surprises for teachers and staff. In the spring the PTO also hosted a school safety talk with Concord PD officers; created library signage and helped with the book fair; served on the RMS principal hiring committee; hosted a hot cocoa bar for staff and teachers; and assisted with planning and decorating for the 8th grade celebration.

The PTO remains committed to supporting the students, teachers and staff at Rundlett Middle School.

There are two ways you can help:

1) Financial Assistance so that our organization can provide speakers and materials to enrich the classroom experience for the students and teachers. Also, so that we can show our appreciation to our schools’ teachers and staff.

2) Volunteer! We have a number of positions to fill so that we can achieve our mission this year.

Thank you for your support,

Caitlin Sackman, PTO President

Teacher’s Lounge Refresh

We hope all of you have an amazing weekend after this short but busy week!

Our PTO President, Caitlin Sackman, organized a project to refresh the teacher’s lounge. It looks incredible and nobody is more deserving than our teachers! I’ve included the before and after pictures she took below.
