Parents Association

Parents Association

The Richmond Montessori Parents Association (RMPA) nurtures a strong school community for students and families through special projects, events, and FUNdraising that support and promote the school’s mission.

The RMPA executive committee works closely with the school leadership team to plan multiple community-wide events and activities throughout the school year.

These Events Include:

  • Pizza Fridays & Ellwood Thompson’s Mondays
  • School Photos
  • Harvest Fest
  • Fall BBGB Book Fair
  • Family Fun Night
  • Conference Day Lunches
  • Conference Day Child Care
  • Staff Holiday Gifts
  • Bingo Night
  • School-wide Dance
  • Teacher Appreciation
  • Family Picnic

All fundraisers are planned and implemented by parent volunteers, and all proceeds from their efforts directly support programs and physical site improvements to benefit the RMS community. We encourage all parents to contribute to the life of the  school by getting involved in at least one event each year. You can join a committee, help out at an event or coordinate a project. It is a great way to get to know other parents, to share your special talents, and to support the students and faculty. The RMPA holds monthly planning meetings and all are welcome to attend and participate in RMPA events.
