President's Message



Hello, I am Richmond Street School's 2017-2018 Parent Teacher Association President Melissa McCaverty.

I am so excited to be returning as RSS PTA's President. I learned a lot last year, and know that this year is going to be even better. PTA made a lot of changes in one school year. In particular, we have reduced the amount of PTA general association meetings so that we can have more fun events for both parents and students. 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 our schedules allowed. Once we saw all of the amazing opportunities PTA provided for our students and the school, we knew we had to stay involved.

A little about PTA: PTA sponsors programs, events and provides resources that enhance our students’ educational experience. Our PTA is truly outstanding; thanks to the amazing support we receive from our teachers, staff, administrators, parents and community.

We heard your requests, worked hard over the summer and think you'll be pleased with the enhancements we made and agenda we created for the year. Some of which include water filling stations, back-to-school supply kits, ukulele’s for music, equipment for P.E., professional development and technology for our teachers, new assemblies, family fun nights, parent education nights, learning garden improvements and much more. So please, join us, for without you, none of this would be possible. We are looking forward to a fantastic 2017-2018 school year!


Please join us at our for our first PTA meeting on Monday, May 14, 2018 at 6:30 pm.  This is our final meeting of the school year, and my last as PTA President.  It truly has been an honor being PTA President at Richmond Street School.




We are ONLY 25 members away from reaching our membership goal of 435 members -  so please don't forget to join PTA at:

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