Please make sure your volunteer approval status is current. To renew your application or apply for the first time, please visit the LWSD Volunteer Application website. Volunteer approvals are in good standing for two years from time of approval.

Staff Appreciation: Buy Lunch! (Repeat)

In-person school started April 19 and our RMS staff is hard at work making this a reality, as well as continuing remote learning for all students. Staff Appreciation Week is coming up May 3-7, and RMS PTSA would love to do something nice for them.

Unfortunately, safety precautions prevent us from offering our traditional potluck lunches that the staff absolutely raves about. Instead, we are hoping you will help the PTSA provide catered box lunches for the staff. Each lunch will provide a main entrée, side, and drink for approximately $10. Please consider contributing to this worthy cause. Please donate by April 30 so we may have enough time to plan the event!
