  • Heads in the Cloud 2017

    RGMS & PTA Chromebooks Fundraiser

    $3400 from 29 families in the first two weeks is an awesome accomplishment! Thank you.

    RGMS students and teachers love Chromebooks and we are fundraising to increase our collection. You received a Heads in the Cloud 2017 letter and remittance envelope in the mail recently asking for donations to reach our goal of $12,000. This will purchase 48 new Chromebooks. Thanks so much to parent volunteer, Meagan Tuhy, for the fantastic promotional artwork for the past three years!

    To donate online, please go to, or THIS LINK if you don't and have an RGMS Schoolpay account, and look for Chromebooks Donation. We also gladly except checks and cash and matched donations and all of that! Thank you for your support of this important initiative. RGMS is a PPS leader in instructional technology thanks to the support from our RGMS community.

    What is a Chromebook? Instead of using Windows 10 or Mac OS X, Chromebooks run Google's Chrome OS. These machines are designed to be used primarily while connected to the Internet, with most applications and documents living in the cloud. They are small, lightweight, durable and inexpensive. Using Google Apps for Education, students and teachers can share their work, which has become a schoolwide strategy. We currently have 11 Chromebook carts of 32 each and they are used daily. The demand is very high and we hope to become a 1:1 school in the next few years.
