RRMS Parent /Visitor General Info
Parent / Visitor General Information
We value the partnership between home and school and invite all families to join in on the exciting learning and fun that takes place in middle school. Participation in the school community can occur through being a classroom volunteer, a volunteer in the library or workroom and through being a PTO member.
PARENT TEACHER ORGANIZATION
Membership in the PTO shall be open to any adult who wishes to support the best interests of Rosemont Ridge Middle School. PTO meetings are open to everyone and take place each month during the school year.
Parent volunteers are most welcome at Rosemont Ridge. All volunteers must submit an application to our Help Counter system and receive approval. The link for this application is on our home page. All volunteers, helpers and chaperones must be pre-approved. The application is free and simple to complete, but the approval process generally takes 4-7 days. The Help Counter application must be filled out annually. We suggest applying at the beginning of the year so parents are set for the rest of the year. There are a myriad of jobs to be done such as library helper, office work, supervising students during lunch or teacher planning time, computer input work, working with students in small groups, teacher clerical work, chaperoning, score keeper and timer for athletic events, etc. Parents are also invited to indicate the areas they are interested in helping on the PTO form that is mailed home in the “Back to School” packet for assisting with PTO organized events.
VISITOR POLICY - ADULTS
For the safety and security of our students we ask that all visitors check in at the main entrance office and receive a Visitor or Volunteer badge. Parents and guardians are welcome to visit school at any time but we ask that classes do not get interrupted. Also, as teachers have no time between classes, it is best to insure the quality of a meeting time by calling in or emailing to set up an appointment in advance.
