PTA Membership Benefits

In addition to supporting your school, did you know that your PTA membership can save you money? There is a Members Only section on the national PTA website -www.PTA.org. The back of your PTA membership card has the username and password to access this area. For example, you could save on purchases at Staples (10% on supplies, 25% on copy & print and more). Go to the www.PTA.org website to get full details for these and other offers.  

You can also get discounts through the Virginia PTA - check out http://vapta.org/members-only/benefits-and-discounts.html  for more information.
HIGHLIGHTS:

NEW!! Update as of October 30th -
Make Hunger Disappear Food Drive
-
Roadrunners - we are SO CLOSE to our goal.  Between Monster Mash last night and today's collection, we had a great response and doubled what we had from our last count. So, if you haven't already (or even if you have), please bring in a can of food, box of pasta or cereal, jar of peanut butter, or bag of rice or beans for our Food Drive
for our Food Drive and help many people in Central Virginia be less hungry.  Please help support this worthy cause.

All food collected goes to FeedMore, Central Virginia's food bank. If this year's total collection reaches our goal of 500 pounds or more, the students will get to enjoy a "Wear Your PJ's to School" Day.  Our Food Drive goes through this Friday, October 31st - cans may be dropped off in our collection boxes at Monster Mash or anytime between now and Friday.

This is it - Tomorrow (October 31st) is the last day to order a Yearbook.  Price is now $22.  You can download an order form here. Go to the folder "Order Items" and select Yearbook.

Running Club: Scheduled to take place on Wednesday mornings if the weather is good.  Notice of any change to this schedule will go out to participants (who have already provided their emails addresses to the organizers) and updates will be posted to Facebook and the RESPTA website by 7:45am on the morning of event.  * IMPORTANT!: As stated earlier in the year, if you are dropping off a child, a parent *MUST* walk the child to the track and sign the child in before leaving the premises.  Not doing so will forfeit your right to use this courtesy service, so please, please don't violate this process!  Children should NOT be left at the RMS track without the Running Club Organizer or Assistants present.
