Website updates/Sneak-A-Peek/Supply pick up

Hello RFES Families!

The PTA has been hard at work over the summer.  We created a survey in the spring to try to find out how to best communicate the huge number of ways that families and the school can connect and got excellent responses.  With that information, we have revamped the PTA website to try to make it the most useful single place for you to find out and get involved with what is happening at Rodgers Forge Elementary.

Some changes include:

*An importable calendar of the dates that came in the mail from the school.  Don't want to type in all the BCPS and RFES closures, events and early dismissals?  Go here and import them directly into your family's scheduling system!  http://www.rodgersforgepta.org/p/rfes-pta-event-calendar.html

*Want to know all the volunteer opportunities at a glance?  Go here and see a list! http://www.rodgersforgepta.org/p/voluntee.html (right now there is only the library organization event, but it REALLY needs your help!!)

*We are also working on bringing in new spirit wear options which will be available via the website as well! We all know how much school spirit there is at RFES!!  These fun new options will be a great compliment to our annual tee shirt drive...which is happening early this year so get those orders in during next week. :)

If there is functionality you want to see on the site, please drop us a line and let us know.  Hailey and Laura can be reached at rfesptapresident@gmail.com.

Today, as you all know, is Sneak-A-Peak!  During that, come to the rear rec room to collect the school supply kits you ordered at the end of May.  My kids have been looking forward to this return since the last day of school in June. All the mystery resolved! All the friends reunited! It's very sweet how central a role the school plays in their lives.  Join the PTA to make it part of your family's life, too!
