The RGMS Algebra Team took first place in the PPS Math Pentagames, and our 7th grade team took 2nd place. There were numerous individual ribbons and awards. Their coach, Mr. Timmons, is so proud of the students and thankful for a school which has fostered their eagerness in advancing in math.
RGMS Parents, Teachers and Staff,
Wow! Look what our community did! Tacos, Tech & Teachers was a grand event.We raised $23,700 (after $5,600 in expenses) at the May 5th auction AND another $8,250 in flat out donations for a total of nearly $32,000 to support our technology program and teacher leaders. Holy moly!
Here’s how the proceeds will be spent:
+ Extended responsibility pay for teachers: $12,000
Auction proceeds: $32,000
So we are 20 percent of the way toward our goal of $97,000 to buy 10 more Chromebook carts with 36 devices per cart. And our Foundation needs are met thanks to your generosity all year.
The dream: Every classroom. Every kid. Heads in the Cloud: Chromebooks for Classrooms
Want to get in on the action? Consider clicking the donation link and doing what works for your family budget. Your ongoing donations make us one of the strongest middle schools for technology in PPS, and we feed into Wilson High School with the largest number of computer science courses.
We are so fortunate for your generosity! AND it was an incredibly fun night!
MANY thanks to our awesome volunteers - including a bunch of teachers and staff members - who whipped Multnomah Art Center into a Cinco de Mayo party venue in not much more than an hour.
Thanks especially to awesome auctioneer Eric Hern and RGMS community member Roger Devine for helping us with the auction software. What great guys!
And a special shout out to the Detention Band - Jon Jeans, Sean Nowland, CJ Mead, Joe Kennedy, and Eric Mosbarger. You could quit your day jobs and hit the road, but please don’t!
All of this was the brainchild of our amazing PTA Co-President Erica Meyers just five short weeks ago. We are so grateful to her and her mighty band of organizers, including Principal Beth Madison who was co-visionary and constant team player, and Erin Hoover-Barnett, who was there with us every step of the way,
Last PTA meeting this year: Tuesday, May 15, 9 a.m., RGMS Library. We will vote in new officers and approve a draft budget for 2018-19, including whether to set aside money to plan Auction 2.0 next year!
Thanks again and have a great week!

Have you ordered a yearbook? This year's will be spectacular.

Use your Schoolpay account at https://pps.schoolpay.com/. Log on and then go to the non-profits page to get to the PTA. Cost is $20.
Could you pass the U.S. citizenship test? Maybe. Maybe not. Some questions may surprise people who were born and raised in this country, and certainly could be a challenge for newcomers. That’s why eight Roosevelt High School students spend their Wednesday evenings teaching the ins and outs of the test to more than 50 immigrants through the Mission: Citizen program.
Lincoln ran away with the girls team title, and Benson used a strong performance in the sprints to win the boys championship in the Portland Interscholastic League track and field championships at Franklin High School on Friday.
