Upcoming PTSO Meetings

PTSO Meeting Dates

Hi Rapids Families!
Welcome to returning and new families, students, and staff! We are excited to have a normal school year from start to finish! The PTSO is excited to help the wonderful teachers, staff, and administrators have a successful school year! Last year, we helped with the Homecoming Dance, senior events, had quite a few fundraisers (Krispy Kreme sales, Spirit Night at Chicano Boy, the Grade Level Coin War, Kendra Scott, Bell Greek, etc.)), awarded FOUR $1000 scholarships to graduating seniors, and showed the staff how much we appreciate them with luncheons, breakfast and treats throughout the year!  Please consider joining and volunteering to help us make this a great school year at JRHS!
The PTSO awards scholarships to deserving seniors, supports school needs (including classrooms, the
library, etc.), provides speakers for students and families, faculty and staff appreciation events, and provides volunteers for activities throughout the year, such as Homecoming, prom, senior events, and grade level awards. Other ways that you can support the PTSO include signing up for Kroger Community Rewards and using JRHS PTSO as the recipient, donate your unwanted clothing, bedding, etc. to the Clothing for Cash Program (the bin for this is in the JRHS parking lot). Another great way to support the PTSO is to volunteer to help out when you see a PTSO sign up.
James River is a GREAT high school and we want that to show to existing familes, new families and the community! We would love to have you join the JRHS PTSO and be a part of your child’s high school experience. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me at
