Parent Teacher Association
The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a collaborative fundraising and event planning effort between the parents and teachers of Richmond Consolidated School. Fundraising is concentrated on projects and needed resources that are beyond the scope of public funding, yet enhance the academic, athletic, and arts programs at the school.
All parents are welcome and encouraged to participate in the PTA!. Let's all work together for the benefit of the school, the community and our kids!!
Who are we?
We are a group of parents and teachers who volunteer our time and resources to raise money, organize events and support our school.
What do we do?
The PTOAraises about $20,000 annually to fund things like field trips for our students, supplies for our classrooms and books for our library. We sponsor events that we all look forward to and enjoy immensely, like the Back to School Barbecue, the Richmond Craft and Country Fair, and the Ice Cream Social. It takes a lot of work and parent involvement to pull off these events each year. We SO appreciate everyone that volunteers.
What do we need?
Right now there are just a few of us actively involved in the PTA. We all have jobs, obligations and families, but we make time for this. Whether you are new to the PTA or a “veteran” volunteer, we want your help!! We need parents to attend our meetings and share their ideas. We need volunteers to organize and staff events. We need you to set an example for the children that see you volunteering. It's a great opportunity to get involved and give back to the school we all love so much!
How can you help?
Everyone has something to offer and can make a difference! All you need is little bit of time and a willingness to help. We meet once monthly in the conference room near the school's main entrance. Meetings last about an hour. As always, thank you for your consideration. We hope to see you at our next meeting!
When can you help?
Come to a meeting!! We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 3:10pm in the conference room by the school's main entrance unless otherwise noted. Lots of great events coming up that are only made possible by parental involvement! NEXT PTA meeting will be on Wednesday, December 13th at 6:30pm at the International House of Tacos on West Housatonic Street in Pittsfield. Hope to see you there!
