Spirit Wear Sales and Availability: Spirit Wear is normally ordered once a month, although some items will be available for sale at school events such as the Open House, Parent Teacher Conferences, etc. Our arrangement with the vendor does require, however, a minimum combined order of 36 to submit for processing, so we wait until we have that many confirmed orders before submitting to the vendor. Spirit Wear order forms are available for download on the PTO Website and are accepted anytime until the end of the school year. If the Spirit Wear item you order is in stock, it is normally delivered to your child at school within a few working days. If the item is not in stock, processing may take up to three weeks to complete.f. PTO Membership: We invite all RoMS Teachers and Parents to please join the PTO for a nominal one- time fee of only $5.00 per family. Forms are available for download on the PTO Website and attached. Teachers/ faculty will receive a membership sign to post outside their classroom door announcing their affiliation with the RoMS PTO. Families will receive a coupon from Chick Fil A for a free sandwich. Our goal is 100% membership with teachers, faculty and staff along with students. We give rewards for the homeroom classroom with the highest percentage of PTO membership and teachers receive incentives as well. Your membership and participation is what makes the PTO successful, so please join today!g. Family Spirit Night at CiCi’s Pizza: One night a month, the CiCi’s Pizza franchise on Madison St. in Clarksville hosts RoMS for a fundraising night, during which 10% of total sales goes directly to the PTO. We would greatly appreciate your participation in Family Spirit Night at CiCi’s Pizza. The homeroom class with the highest rate of participation will receive a pizza party as a reward for setting the example with participation!h. Hospitality Events: We always need your help, but especially for the Back to School luncheon, Parent- Teacher Conference nights, American Education Week, TCAP Testing, and Teacher Appreciation Week. During these events and others like them, the RoMS PTO provides hospitality meals to teachers, most of whom have to work very long hours with few breaks. These hospitality events ensure our teachers get fed quickly and well, and can easily continue providing quality education to our young students.
