Dear RCMS Parents:
I hope you’ll consider running for our school council, or encourage a friend to do so.
In Kentucky, each school has a council composed of the principal, elected teachers, and elected parents who make many of the most important decisions about how their school will work. The council is a wonderful chance to learn about our school, work closely with teachers, and help make our school even more successful than it is now. The parent members of the council are elected by parents. They receive training and will serve from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018. To help with questions you may have, I’m enclosing a fact sheet about parent members of Kentucky school councils.
Nominations are due to Mrs. Reva McKinney in the school office no later than 3:00 PM on April 28, 2017. If you know someone who would be a good candidate, please do encourage that person to run.
The election will be held May 2nd, 2017, from 8:30- 4:00PM in the school front lobby. If you will have a child enrolled at RCMS next year, you are eligible to vote in this election. (This includes parents, step-parents and foster parents. Legal guardians are also eligible to vote if the child lives in their home.) I urge every parent to participate in this important decision about the future of our children’s school.
Thank you for your interest in our school, and please let me know if you have questions.
Parent/Teacher Group President, RCMS
