President's Message

 

HELLO RICHMOND STREET FAMILIES:

 

 

I am Richmond Street School's 2016-2017 PTA President Melissa McCaverty.

 

Can you believe that this year is almost over?  Where does the time go?  As a first time PTA President, I have to say I am so proud of all of the work we achieved here at Richmond Street School and I am looking forward to next year.  I have learned so much.  I have really enjoyed getting to know our RSS community.  We have worked very hard this year to be a welcoming environment for all parents, students and the entire RSS community.

 

A little about me: I am a mom to 3 RSS children.  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. Last year, Jonathan served on the Mother-Son event committee and I was on the Executive Board of the PTA as Auditor where I became more familiar with our PTA’s processes. 

 

PTA sponsors programs, events and provides resources that enhance our students’ educational experience. Having just returned from the CA PTA's annual convention here we attended trainings and workshops.  Let me just say - 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 winding down, I can't help but smile and think of all the wonderful events, programs and fundraisers the PTA was able to provide for our students and their parents.  As always, we area always open to ideas on how to make our PTA even better.  We still have some exciting events coming up, especially for our graduating 5th graders.  

 

There will not be a PTA Association on Monday May 12th at 6:30 pm - instead, the next PTA Association Meeting is our annual Board Installation Dinner and will be held Thursday June 1st at 6:30 pm at the Old Town Patio, 115 Richmond Street, El Segundo, CA 90245.

 

The Association will be voting to approve these proposed changes at it's next association meeting on Thursday June 1st, 2017,
6:30pm at the Old Town Patio, all PTA Members are welcome.
Please RSVP to richmondstreetpta@gmail.com if you plan to attend.

 

RSS PTA Proposes the following changes to the Bylaws:

1. Article VII Section 1 (page 13)
We propose changing the mandatory association meetings to September, November, March and May


Please note - the June 1st PTA Installation Dinner and Association Meeting is in lieu of the previously scheduled May 12th Association meeting.


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.

 

 If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at:  richmondstreetpta@gmail.com  

 

 

- Melissa
