What is PTA?
A Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a volunteer group composed of parents, teachers and staff and is intended to facilitate parental participation. Our Rama Road PTA is focused on creating the best possible educational experience for our children. We strive to maintain an atmosphere where teachers, administrators and staff can do their best work, so our children can too.
Fundraisers & Programs
Our primary objective as PTA is to provide our school with funds, programs, resources and services that will enrich and maximize the education of every child. To meet this important objective and afford services that are no longer covered by school budgets, we raise money to provide our classrooms with technology, supplies, cultural arts, book fairs, author readings, field trip supplements, interactive experiences and more!
The Rama FUN RUN (October) is our biggest fundraiser. Each year, this event raises thousands of dollars for our school. Our community involvement event is RAMAFEST (April). We also collect labels from household items, BoxTops and Labels for Education and partner with retail chains (Harris Teeter and Target REDcard to bring in additional PTA funding.

Amazon Smile and designate Rama Road as the charitable organization of your

With limited school budgets, our teachers need parental support more than ever. If you haven't already, please visit the CMS website to fill an online background check so you can volunteer. Whether you can assist once per week or once per year, it will make a huge difference and be greatly appreciated! You can also see a list of current volunteer opportunities on the SignUp Genius site.
