The Rochester Memorial School Parent Teacher Organization is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization comprised of parents, teachers and community members who help raise and distribute funds to the students and teachers of Rochester Memorial School for a variety of extracurricular and enrichment activities that supplement their everyday learning. Membership in this organization is open to all parents, teachers and family members and is led by a dedicated group of volunteers.
The RMS PTO Executive Board is made up of 7 elected positions. This ensures that the work of running a non-profit organization doesn't fall on the shoulders of one or two. Our Executive Board members oversee our volunteers (you!), research new programs that benefit students, teachers, and the school, work with RMS and our greater community to keep you up to date with the latest news, find fun and creative ways to raise money for programs (without always asking our families for money), and run those programs!
The RMS PTO is governed by our bylaws and any state and/or federal laws concerning non-profit organizations. We have been working hard to get the business side of PTO streamlined so we can spend more time providing for RMS!
