Classroom Opportunities

  • For the Love of Art

You don't have to be Picasso, DaVinci or Degas to appreciate fine art, especially art created at the hands of our amazing children. We need one or two individuals to assist Mrs. Horan bi-weekly either Wednesdays from 12:00-12:30 or after school to help mount artwork to adorn the halls of RCES.  Once you get the hang of the procedure, this work could be completed at home at your convenience. If you are interested in helping Mrs. Horan and brightening the halls of our wonderful school, please contact Amber Holmes at ajunod82@gmail.com or (248) 202-0456. I will get you in touch with Mrs. Horan.  


  • Be a room parent!

This is a great opportunity to get to know you child's teacher and classmates. Click here for information on the room parent's role and time commitment. Contact your teacher if interested.


  • Be an Art enrichment parent!

Pay a monthly 30-40 minute visit to your child's classroom to discuss a pre-selected artwork and do an activity. Interact with your child's classmates and have fun! More information is available here.


  • Contact your child's teacher for other classroom volunteer opportunities and/or supply needs. The more we can do to help our teachers, the more time they can dedicate to our kids.

School Wide Needs


PTA Board Needs

The PTA is very much in need of people to fill the following roles. Contact president@rces-pta.org for more information.

  • School Spirit Merchandise Coordinator
  • Special Education Committee Liaison to MCCPTA
  • Social Media Chair

At Home Opportunities

There are a number of ways that you can help the school at home, or on your own time. Contact 

communityrelations@rces-pta.org for more information. Examples include:

  • Data Entry
  • Copying and collating flyers
  • Many of the above PTA board needs require minimal time, offer flexibility, or occur just once a year.
