MEMBERSHIP PAYMENT NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE Did you know, that as a parent or guardian with a student attending PRM, you are already a PTO member (and so are all our teachers and staff!)? Our goal is to have 100% of our membership as voting members. To be a voting member, it is only $5/family and proceeds help fund the many PTO-sponsored school activities.
Thank you for your support!
GET INVOLVED WITH PTO! Haven’t tossed your name in the hat? If a PTO Executive Officer position is not your thing, no worries, we have many committees in need of a chairperson and committee members. Consider volunteering in one these areas: Fundraising, Communications, and Social/Community. Tell us what area interests you, and we’ll find a spot for you!
To get an idea of the different types of fund-raising, social/community, and communication sub-committees we offer, please see the descriptions below. If you’re interested in joining a committee or volunteering for an event, contact the chairperson in our current committee listing!
As a volunteer body, we are always open to new ideas if you don’t see a committee that is of interest and fills a need. Please email the PTO president if you have questions or would like to volunteer for an Executive Officer or committee position!
