Family Summary of November Board Meeting
Happy holidays!  As has been the case for a few months, the focus areas of the November board meeting included budget, construction, volunteerism, and charter renewal. 
The big takeaway is that your school needs all hands on deck to get us moved into a fully functioning Den by the end of the school year.  Here are some ways you can help:
·       Do you “know a guy?”  Please contact the Facilities Committee via Scott Jones at sjones@rmae.org if you are able to donate or arrange a donation in kind of trade work, materials, or other finishing steps.
·       Do you have free time during the work day?  Volunteer to call prospective business donors.  We provide the materials, scripts, list and tracker.  Sign up on the AtoZ Membership Toolkit or contact Janelle Herrera with questions at jherrera@rmae.org.
·       Are you a talented event planner, or just a willing volunteer?  Volunteer to plan a fabulous fundraiser.  This first of its kind RMAE event will be created in the vision of the planners.  This is a fun chance to really leave your stamp on our school.  Sign up on the AtoZ Membership Toolkit or contact Kelli Anderson with questions at kanderson@rmae.org
