Support Your School and Your Child,  Become a RMS Volunteer

“Roosevelt Middle School’s volunteer program exists to enrich our school Community. We welcome the many diverse talents our volunteers bring, and we honor their commitment to our students and staff.”  -Ms. Sandy Weiner, and Ms. Victoria Bonnett, Co-Presidents PTSA 

The BENEFITS of being involved in your child's school. Research shows that when parents are actively involved with their children's education,students' grades are higher, their self-esteem is greater, and they are more socially adjusted. In fact, the most accurate indicator of a student's academic success in school is not tied to family income or social status, but the extent to which a family:
Creates a home environment that encourages learning.
Sets high but realistic achievement and career expectations.
Becomes involved in their child's education and in the community.
At a time when local and state education funding is in peril and public schools face severe budget reductions, volunteers are needed more than ever. In just a few hours a week school volunteers have tremendous opportunity to make a difference in individual students’ lives and in the overall progress of a classroom and the school.
