PTSA Board Requirements

The Roosevelt IB PTSA supports student enrichment opportunities and family engagement events at Roosevelt International Middle School. Historically, the PTSA has planned family events like the Trick or Trot 3K/5K Fun Run, Family Movie Nights; helped to organize and fund, with RIMS Administration and the YMCA, the after-school enrichment opportunities available to all students; and coordinated 6th Grade Camp and the 8th Grade Promotion Party.
Because the PTSA belongs to everyone interested in being involved, the list of things the PTSA is willing to tackle is really up to next year’s PTSA. There are many people who are active and involved, and we already have folks willing to work on the After School program and 6th Grade Camp, but we still need to find folks willing to take on the three required officer positions: President, Secretary, and Treasurer (see descriptions below). Please contact ASAP if you are interested in serving or would like more information. Again, we will need to fill these three positions in order to maintain the PTSA.
