Hello New and Returning RHMS Families!

Welcome to the new school year!   The PTA has several exciting events planned for each trimester.  Please read on to learn more.  

This year the RHMS PTA going to be doing the majority of its communication through Google Groups.  RHMS PTA Announce and RHMS PTA Community.   The PTA will be using RHMS PTA Announce for announcing PTA hosted and PTA Grant Supported Activities which are for the entire student body, not just PTA members.  RHMS PTA Community will be a group for all RHMS families past and present to share ideas and information, post about help needed, garage sales, ISO etc.  Neither group is a place to discuss school or district policies.  RHMS PTA uses Google for Education.  Please go to Google Groups and search for this group and request to join.  (If you cannot find it, give us a few days and try again, we are still learning this system :-). If there is a Google expert out there, please text me at robyn4jewelry [at] gmail.com (robyn4jewelry [at] gmail.com).  I need help making the group PUBLIC and not only a part of our Google for Education Private domain.) 

If you do not have a gmail account, see the following for instructions on joining a google group. 
https://support.google.com/groups/answer/1067205?hl=en&pli=1#join

Volunteers Needed: 
Monday August 7, 9am to 12noon (approx.) we are in need of volunteers to help stuff the green registration packet envelopes which are to be mailed that day.

Monday August 21, 10:30am to 3:30pm, we are in need of volunteers to collect papers, hand out schedules and PE uniforms, as well as other jobs at the registration day.  If you can come early set-up or stay late to clean-up that would be helpful.

Free summer meals for eligible children

For some children and teens, summer can mean an unwanted vacation from the regular meals they received at school. Fortunately, children in Santa Clara County, ages 18 and younger, can receive free meals during the summer at multiple locations.

Various programs are in place throughout the county to help children, who rely on free or reduced-price school meals, to receive meals when school is out.

Two Campbell Union School District schools will serve meals beginning June 26 and ending July 14.

  • Rosemary Elementary School, located at 401 W. Hamilton Ave., will serve a lunch/brunch from 12:30 to 1 p.m. M
  • Sherman Oaks Elementary, located at 1800 Fruitdale Ave., will serve brunch from 10:30 to 11 a.m.

Children in Campbell also can go to:

  • Del Mar High School will serve free meals during the summer to anyone under age 18. Breakfast is from 9:10 to 9:20 a.m. and lunch from 11:00-11:10 a.m. There will be no meals served July 3-4.
  • The Health Trust, 2105 Bascom Ave., and
  • The Jewish Family Service of Silicon Valley, 14855 Oka Road Suite 202 in Los Gatos.

There are many more locations in Santa Clara County. Families can find a meal site in their area through web searches for USDA Summer Food and the Hunger Hotline, or by phoning the National Hunger Hotline at: 1-866-3HUNGRY (1-866-348-6479) or 1-877-8HAMBRE (1-877-842-6273).
