Greetings friends and neighbors,
We want you to join us at Carbondale’s 2014 Dandelion Day celebration to make it the best ever! On May 10th from 10am-5pm we will celebrate the 16th annual Dandelion Day festival in Sopris Park. It will be similar to last year’s rocking line-up with a Procession of the Species parade, sustainability-focused educational demonstrations, environmentally friendly vendors, plants & flowers, live music & a Battle of the Bands contest, a beer garden featuring local brews, kids crafts, the Crystal River clean-up and more. Again this year, we will leave the beer garden open until 7pm with the stage booming some groovy local music. You are welcome to stay and relax with your neighbors, unwinding from the event.
REMEMBER TO CHECK OUT THE WEBSITE at http://www.dandelionday.org/www.DandelionDay.org and open the booth application link (http://www.dandelionday.org/booth-application-form.html). Look it over, and if interested, fill it out and return it to me, the earlier the better! I will notify you of acceptance before April 30th. If you have friends that may be interested in participating as a vendor please pass this along, we do have a vendor limit, but strive for variety so all ideas are welcome. If you would like to lead an educational presentation on a sustainably-focused topic please note that on your application and connect with our learning series coordinator Suzanne Gray at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org@rocketmail.com. Please note that educational presenters get their vendor booth fee waived.

LIKE it and help spread the word. Also, if you have a Facebook page and I haven’t already LIKEd it please let me know and we’ll make that happen. Let’s stay connected as we work together to make our community more aware of and active in sustainable/environmental/local/healthy/wholesome activities. As always, this is a volunteer organized event and we are welcome to suggestions, ideas and other guidance. This event is so amazing and so full of potential only because you are involved! We value your participation and all you do for our community.
Information and new member meeting Thursday, April 24th in the RMS common area at 3:30
A great way to be an active part of our Ross Community is to join the RFA. We are in need of new members. Our goal as the Ross Community is to make the everyday experience at Ross Montessori Charter School as enjoyable and rewarding as possible for students, teachers and staff by providing an organized base of volunteers.
Every family is part of the Ross Family Association in some way. Whether you like active, social or solitary volunteer activities, there is a team for you.
Our core teams are the following:
1. Classroom Parents
2. Fundraising Team
3. Events Team
4. Library Team
5. Campus Beautification (works with Dave Lawson and Sonya Hemmen)
6. Communications Team
In addition to providing volunteers, the RFA raises money to give back to the school and its community, for things like teacher appreciation week, books and technology for the library, social events, like end of year picnic, guest speakers, etc. We’re happy to report that RFA fundraising efforts last year enabled the organization to contribute $6,500 to the school for the purchase of computer equipment for use by students.
