Opportunities fall under five categories: Events, Classroom opportunities, School wide needs, PTA board needs, and At home opportunities. Scroll down to see what's available, and check back frequently as opportunities are update regularly!


Event Sign-Ups

  • Kindergarten lunch helpers for the first week of school. Only volunteers who have signed up will be allowed to volunteer at lunch



Classroom Opportunities

  • 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-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

  • Important change regarding lunch visitors this year - Due to space and safety issues, the staff has decided that we will not have visitors during lunch and recess. We are looking for some people to help us out, however, during the first week with kindergarten lunch and recess, see sign up above.


  • Our staff lounge furniture is in very bad shape. RCES is looking for two couches (lightly used OK), approximately 7' in length; a coffee table (wood is preferable); and about 18 chairs (wood or plastic would be preferable) for the staff lounge. If you have any furniture to donate, or know of anyone who might, email angieborkat@gmail.com. Pickup is available. Thank you from the PTA and staff!


  • Have a green thumb? Dedicate an hour every week to weeding and helping to keep our courtyard looking beautiful. SSL opportunities are available. Contact jenniferreneeallen@gmail.com if interested.
