A Note From Your PTC Board

Posted by & filed under >GS News, >HS News.


First, we want to say we hope everyone is safe and healthy during this unprecedented time in our community and country.  Secondly, we want to let you know your board is still working and we are trying to determine the best way to handle all PTC sponsored events and programs during this time.   As the situation and timeline of how long our community will be impacted becomes more clear, we plan to communicate which events are being postponed, canceled or being offered in an alternative way. 

Our thoughts are with all of you right now – stay well!

RGS Garden Needs Tools!

Posted by & filed under >GS News, Garden Education.

While our garden has grown over the years, the tool supply has sadly shrunk! We have so many students eager to be in the garden doing hard work this year, and not enough tools for them.  We are hoping some parents or community members have some lying around or are willing to purchase some tools to donate to us. Particular needs are: rakes, shovels, rakes, hand clipper, and loppers.  Please visit the RGS Garden Wish List to see the complete list of needs and help with a gift.

Email Michelle Greissinger with any questions.
