Announcements

Hi Everyone,

My name is Jennifer Snow. The RES PTO thought we should take a moment to introduce ourselves and share a quick note about the organization and the different ways you may want to participate and/or join this really cool club. The current officers include:

Jennifer Snow - President

Natasha Murray – Vice President

Treasurer – Jeny Purvee

Secretary – Debora George

Communications – Sarah Soltsov

Social Media – Holly Laber

We are a non-profit organization with the basic mission to fundraise generally and for specific causes, all of which benefits RES and its staff and students. Some of our past causes have included author visits, dog sledding demonstrations, the outdoor classrooms, playground balls, literacy programs for the preschool, gift cards for all RES staff during the holidays, welcome back breakfasts for RES staff, and a food truck for Teacher Appreciation Week. We generate funds through fundraisers like the pie sale (which is live right now, have you ordered one yet?) and events such as Big Truck Day (coming up this weekend). While raising money is our primary goal, we certainly strive to help enrich the RES community however it best sees fit to utilize us. For example, RES teachers know they can reach out to us if they want something for their classrooms and we help with larger, school-wide goals like the new playground. 

The RES PTO is run purely by volunteers. While some of us have roles that require more of a time commitment, what we’re really looking for are people to volunteer at specific events and/or to participate in our monthly meetings or at least request to be on our mailing list to stay informed about what we’re doing. A couple hours of your time can make the difference between an event raising thousands of dollars versus hundreds of dollars. 

This Saturday, October 22nd, is Big Truck Day at RES. All proceeds will go towards the new playground at RES. We have created a sign-up genius and really need some help to make this fundraiser reach its full potential. It’s only a one or two-hour time commitment per slot, but we need your help. Please take a look at the sheet by following this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0c49a9ab2fa5f94-bigtruck

Thanks so much for your ongoing support. We look forward to meeting and working with more of you!
