  • Lunch Money Deposit

    RGMS would love it if parents would put money in their school meals account. We are in the hole by quite a lot. While we will not deny a child a meal, it does weigh heavily on us when we have outstanding debts. See the link to deposit funds at or send cash or a check to the school kitchen before school begins in the morning.

  • PPS is Hiring AVID Tutors

    AVID Tutors support the AVID Elective by running "tutorials." In the tutorials, students craft questions based on homework and the group uses academic protocols to develop critical thinking skills while answering the questions and helping each other with assignments. AVID Tutors guide the process in order for students to get the most out of it. Because these are small hour commitments, they make awesome jobs for parents working in the home, future teachers, and folks that like young and maturing adolescents. Consider applying today!
