Thank you for considering a role on Redmond Middle School’s PTSA Board, chairing a position, or joining a committee. We really need all of you to step up for RMS in 2019/2020!

Executive Board Member Positions (teal) are elected. Director Board Member Positions (yellow) are appointed by the Executive Board (as are Committees). Board members meet once monthly and attend 4 General Membership Meetings per year. Once a year, the Nominating Committee presents a slate at the general meeting and the membership (any PTSA member) votes on the Executive Board positions. The election for 2019-20 was held at the April General Meeting on April 16, 2019.

We encourage and welcome more dads to our board and chair positions!

Please note that the 2019-2020 executive board will have its first meeting in July 2019. At this meeting, chairs and committees will be officially appointed - until then, all non-elected positions are technically “open”. The names of people who have expressed interest in holding the position have been noted, but no final appointments will be made until July  

Most positions can be shared with a co-chair! Grab a friend or your significant other and volunteer together!

With any questions at all, please email our president we’ll be happy to track down any information you need about an opportunity.

The elected officers of the Redmond Middle School PTSA shall be the President or Co-Presidents, 1st Vice President and/or 2nd Vice President (or Co-Vice Presidents) Secretary, and Treasurer. These officers shall be elected according to Washington State PTA Bylaws. The officers shall assume office July 1st. These elected officers shall constitute the Executive Committee.

Every PTA member is eligible to be a board member (you don’t have to be an RMS PTSA member, your local school membership is fine). If you will have a student at RMS this year and if you have an hour a week to give in support of programs that help children to be successful students, we hope you will consider one of the open positions listed below.

Contact the co-presidents or any of the current board for more information. 

*A meeting is being held to collect nominations for Science Club Chair & leadership. If interested, please email

Not a member but interested in stepping up for students? Join the PTSA and become eligible.
