PTA Leadership

The PTA is staffed by wonderful parent volunteers who organize, plan, and carry out programs that benefit your children and our school. Interested in making a difference at RHES? Email Rosanna to support an event, join a committee, or take the lead for the PTA.

(Even if the position you are interested in is filled, we can always use co-leads, so don’t hesitate to reach out!)
