How the PA Helps

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Military Ball is just one of the many activities and events that the Parents' Association helps support.How the Parents’ Association helps our students:

  • The Hospitality program: Local families offer off-campus hospitality and on-campus help to R-MA students and remote families who desire a touch of "home" for their children. 
  • Concession sales: Conducted at sports events, Homecoming and Parents Weekends, and other special occasions.  Home baked goods are needed to sell as part of the concession sales.  
  • Used uniform sales: A service provided to R-MA families to save them money. 
  • The Christmas project: The PA puts on a Christmas celebration for the R-MA staff and faculty to show appreciation for their dedication and hard work with our children, and to share the spirit of the holiday season with them. 
  • The Birthday project: Provides recognition and gifts for each middle school student on their birthdays. 
  • The Military Ball: Parent volunteers help decorate and chaperone this special event for our junior and senior cadets.
  • Book Fair: The PA puts on book fairs for both the Middle and the Upper Schools.
Additional funding: The PA helps the Middle School and Upper School by funding mentoring programs, flight dinners, dances, military programs, academics, and sports.
The PA funded a total of 10 grants in the 2015-16 school year. Read the article by Lori Ponn P'17, '18, '19 to learn what grants were funded.
