President's Message





I am Richmond Street School's 2017-2018 PTA President Melissa McCaverty.


I am so excited to be returning as RSS PTA's President.  I learned a lot last year, and feel like this year is going to be even better.  We made a lot of changes in one school year, in particular, we have reduced the amount of PTA meetings so that we can have more fun events for both parents and students.  I am very proud of all of the work we achieved at Richmond Street School last school year and I am looking forward this year.  We have really turned RSS PTA into a welcoming place for all parents, students and the entire RSS community.  


A little about me: I am a mom to 3 RSS children, a daughter entering 3rd grade and twin boys entering 1st grade.  When our daughter entered TK, my husband Jonathan and I wanted to be involved early on. We joined PTA, worked as room parents, and volunteered whenever and wherever we could. Once we saw all of the amazing opportunities PTA provided for our students and the school, we knew we had to stay involved.


PTA sponsors programs, events and provides resources that enhance our students’ educational experience. Our PTA is truly outstanding - we are so blessed here at RSS.  We have such amazing support from our teachers, staff, administrations, parents and community.  As this school year is about to begin, we are looking forward to implementing new programs.  PTA and the administration and teachers have been working hard over the summer to plan a wonderful agenda for the upcoming school year.  We have heard the parents requests and we think you'll be very pleased with some of the assemblies we are adding to this years agenda. As always, we area always open to ideas on how to make our PTA even better.  


Please join us at our for our first PTA meeting on Monday, September 11th at 6:30 pm and learn more about PTA.  Don't forget to join RSS PTA prior to the first meeting at:

RSS PTA Association meetings are open to the public. However, only paid RSS PTA members are eligible to vote on any motions presented at the meeting. There will be an opportunity to become a RSS PTA member at the beginning of each meeting. The agenda for the meetings will be made available prior to each meeting and will be posted here. We welcome all parents, grandparents and interested parties to the meetings and look forward to an open discussion of school related topics.

 We are looking forward to a great 2017-2018 school year!
