RHMS PTA Board Nominations Open
Rolling Hills PTA is actively involved in making your middle schooler’s experience better with enriching experiences and community events.
Being on the PTA board is a great way to get involved in the PTA and meaningfully contribute to your school as well as the entire Rolling Hills community. Also, PTA is a nation-wide organization that lobbies for legislation and guidelines that improve our children’s education everywhere.
Please consider joining the board!
