Please join us for a info-packed meeting on Tuesday December 13th at 7pm in the RMS Media Center. Mr. Garcia will give an update, Ms. Satchell will speak briefly about how Team Leaders are focusing on Academic risk-taking and how caregivers can support their students, and Mrs. Lisa Cline will be joining us, an RMS alum-parent and local pioneer in making technology safe for kids and teens. Her talk about the dangers of social media is informative, intense and not to be missed! Unfortunately, we are NOT inviting our students to this PTSA Meeting as Ms. Cline's talk contains some sensitive information that she prefers to share directly with adult caregivers. We will resume our inclusion of our students (in exchange of SSL hours) at the next meeting. _________________________________________________

Deposit and Disbursement Forms  

Form -RMS Disbursement Request

  • PTSA membership shows your child that school matters.  Decades worth of research show that when parents are involved, students perform better in school.  That alone is worth the price of PTA dues! 
  • Through the PTSA you can meet other parents, your children’s classmates, and the leadership and staff of your school.  You will make new friends, finding other parents who share your interests, passions, and concerns. 
  • Share your culture through the PTSA.  PTSAs in Montgomery County benefit from the richness of our local community.  Our children benefit from the exposure to the wealth of cultures that make up our local communities.  And parents who are bilingual or multilingual are a wonderful resource to our diverse community. 
  • Ridgeview PTSA organizes a variety of events and activities for students and families, celebrates staff, educates parents, and often raises funds to enrich your child’s educational experience.  Your membership supports these events, even if you do not have time to volunteer yourself. 
  • The PTSA is your voice at Ridgeview, in Montgomery County Public Schools, and beyond.  PTSA membership gives you a say in what happens at your school and is a factor in decisions made countywide.  Be heard. 
  • As a PTSA member, you stand together with the broader community before the Board of Education and the Montgomery County Council, and our numbers—MCCPTA had about 50,000 members last year and we hope to grow to 75,000—give strength to our positions.  MCCPTA has a voice in everything from school construction to safety concerns to report card grading standards.  You want to be heard?  Join the Ridgeview PTSA.       

Please join Ridgeview PTSA; you will become part of our school, MCCPTA, Maryland PTA, and National PTA.  You, your child, and every member of our community benefit.  Your membership matters.
