Volunteers needed for RPMS Fall Dance

Hello Rosa Parks Families,

Our Fall Dance is approaching us and we are in need of volunteers for various roles to make this dance a success for our students.

Please contact me at if you can help out with this activity in any way. No worries if you can’t. We have a couple more things coming up after the dance that we will be asking for volunteers. Thanks for any help you can give this school year.

Rosa Parks incident on 9/19/16 and update on last week’s incident

A letter was sent home to the middle school students at Rosa Parks from the Principal about an incident that occurred at a bus stop.  We are asking that parents speak with their children about safety in light of the community events that happened last week and this week. See bus-stop-pic-incident-9-19-16.

Also see the press release for an update from last week’s incident and a description of the suspect.


Dear Parents and Guardians:

This message is to inform you about an incident that happened in our community on Thursday, September 15, 2016. The Montgomery County Police Department has issued a press release indicating that an assault occurred in the Olney/Sandy Spring area…/detectives-investigate-rape-of-…/. The police are investigating the incident. Anyone with information about this assault is asked to call the Special Victims Investigations Division at 240-773-5400 or Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).

The safety and security of our students is paramount. Please take this opportunity to remind your children of the importance of remaining alert, the procedures they are to follow when approached by strangers, and to report anything suspicious to you, a staff member, or the police. Additionally, review safety practices at home:

When walking to/from school, never walk alone. Always walk with at least one friend; two or three is even better.
If a stranger follows you on foot, get away from him or her as quickly as you can. You can run and yell, “HELP!”
If a stranger offers you a ride, say “NO!” and stay far away from the car.
Never leave school with a stranger.
Tell a trusted adult if a stranger is lingering on school property.
As always, thank you for your cooperation and support.

Volunteer Training!!!

volunteersMoms, Dads and Families,

We need you to volunteer in our school. Often there are opportunities for help in the building and during evening activities. The PTA and Rosa Parks Middle School welcome you!

This year the county has required that all adults who volunteer in our building have completed a Child Abuse and Neglect Training. Once you have completed this training you will receive an email confirmation. Please print this confirmation and turn it into our PTA mailbox in the main office or email to Suzanne VanDusen, our Volunteer Coordinator at and we will file it.

Thank you for taking time to insure the safety and well-being of all our students.
