President's Welcome

Welcome to the Rawls Byrd Elementary PTA web site!  The 2015-2016 PTA Executive Board is very honored and pleased to be serving you and we look forward to an exciting year!  Some of our goals for the school year are:
  • To continuously grow our membership base;
  • To improve communications by utilizing
    • Facebook and the web site to provide access to information and forms at all times;
    • Regular email blasts to the membership regarding upcoming events & meetings;
  • To continue to bring quality programs to the school and the students within a tightened budget;
  • To enlist more volunteers to fill our expanded volunteer opportunities, so that each parent volunteer can actually work less while maintaining our programs;  
  • To serve the interest of the students and their families, the school and the community by fostering partnerships

We are always open to input, suggestions and feedback so that we are better able to serve you, the students and the school.  We hope that you will join us for our general membership meetings so that you are informed and so that your voice is heard.
Together, we can make the 2015-2016 school year the best that it can be!

Trista Sikes
2015-2016 RBE PTA President
