Log Your Volunteer Hours - We strive for the 60 hours per family time commitment that was written into our charter by the original founders in 1999. Tracking these hours is fundamental for us to keep our JeffCo School District charter, as well as to obtain grants that will improve our school. For assistance in logging your volunteer hours in AtoZ Connect (http://atozconnect.com), go to the Volunteering page on our website 


Please Remember to order hot lunch the first two weeks of each month. Orders can be placed on RMAE's website under the "Family Resources" tab.


Your yearbook staff is back and already at it! We are excited to get this year rolling, and we need your help. One of the biggest areas that we end up lacking in each year is pictures.

Then just click "Upload". Easy as pie! You will be credited, and greatly appreciated. If you have any questions or are struggling, please reach out to us at yearbook@rmae.org
