Who Are Our Next RHE PTSA Board Members?

Help us find out! Many of us on the board have older kids, so we'd love to get some parents/guardians of kindergartners through third graders on our nominating committee (fancy term for a group of people who help track down candidates for next year's board). The time commitment is just a few hours over the next three months. 

If you are interested in serving on the nominating committee or would like to know more about joining the PTSA board next year, please email us at by Wednesday, January 20
