Our mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.  We strive to fulfill our mission through programs, advocacy and family engagement.


The RSES PTA is made up of hard-working parents & teachers who pool their talents to provide practical support for our school. Those listed below volunteered to provide leadership this year. Get to know their names and faces, and feel free to ask them if you have questions.
