Board Memo – November 16, 2016
Posted on 11/16/2016

Dear RMAE Community:

It was another gorgeous weekend and we hope that you found a way to enjoy it. We wanted to follow up on our letter from Friday to thank all of the members of the RMAE Community that have reached out with insights and offers of assistance as well as to specifically request help with several Board sub-committees that are either inactive or lack sufficient members to spread the workload.

The Board and Dr. Stueven have received a steady stream of calls, emails and letters voicing thanks, encouragement and ideas for how to improve our school. Please keep them coming. We are listening and intend to respond to each and every note. We also recently discovered our physical mailbox at the school and it was filled with welcome cards and notes. Thanks for these and the amazing name cards prepared by students for use at meetings, they provide welcome encouragement during a time that we are grappling with difficult decisions and need the support the most.

Many parents, teachers and staff have asked how they can pitch in to help the school. First and foremost, call your friends and former students who have left RMAE and encourage them to return. While the Board and Principal are taking steps to stabilize our situation, long-term enrollment must go up. Secondly, the school and Board need membership and involvement in several important Board sub-committees. The sub-committees are the subject matter experts in their respective areas and make recommendations to the Board while assisting with the implementation of initiatives in partnership with the Principal, teachers and staff.

Please use the below link to access a list of standing and essential ad hoc sub-committees together with an existing contact or, if no contact exists yet, a Board member liaison that you can contact to express interest or ask questions: RMAE Committee Sign-up List (Google Doc). Participating in a sub-committee is a great way to make a difference at RMAE and also to get your volunteering hours in.

We look forward to hearing from you and getting the chance to work together soon.

Most Sincerely,

Rocky Mountain Academy of Evergreen Board of Directors
