Dear Parents/Guardians:
You are invited to join us at our Annual General Meeting on Thursday May 28th, 7p.m. at Garden City Elementary School.

RAM needs your help! Becoming active in RAM is an important way to become involved in your child’s education. It directly helps your children’s education and keeps you informed about school issues, programs and events, and Montessori in the public education system.

As children get older and families move on, a number of Executive positions will be vacant for next year. Without a full executive, including a Chair (or co-chairs), and others, RAM cannot function. We have the ability to support new executive members by partnering with current and former Executive members, but we need your help! As parents, we are all busy, but we all want the best for our children. Without your help, your children’s Montessori program will suffer.

Various positions are open for nominations for the June 2015 – June 2016 term and many positions can be shared: (duties listed on Page 2 of the nomination form):

· Chairperson
· Vice-Chairperson
· Secretary
· Treasurer
· Purchaser and Inventory Coordinator
· Materials Receivers (from each school)
· Fundraisers
· RAM/PAC Liaison (one from each school)
· Web Administrator / Social Media coordinator
· Members-at-large
· Translators

To volunteer or nominate another individual, please complete the nomination form and return it to the school office by May 26, 2015 or bring it with you to the RAM Annual General Meeting. Election of Executive Committee positions will take place at the RAM Annual General Meeting on Thursday, May 28, 2015 at 7:00 PM at Garden City Elementary School (8311 Garden City Road).
