California State PTA seeks student leadership


Students are valuable members of the California State PTA Board of Managers.  As full voting members, they share their perspectives on current issues, voice their concerns and provide insights during the meetings they attend.  Volunteer service as a member on the board provides students with an opportunity to further develop leadership skills within the framework and organizational structure of the California State PTA. 

California State PTA is now accepting applications for students to serve on their state board. Student board members must be at least 16 years of age and no more than 19 years of age by July 1, 2017.  Selected students would serve on the California State PTA Board of Managers from July 1, 2017, through June 30, 2018. 

Links to download the guidelines and application forms are below: 

Please note that all applications must be received in the state office by March 15, 2017.  For more information, visit the Student Involvement section of the CA State PTA website

If you have any questions, please contact Pam Benson, Student Involvement Committee Chairman, at



RUHS Academic Dept. Spotlight - Social Studies Department

Each month our PTSA student board members, Steve Barbee and Madison Laster, will spotlight two teachers. This month's teacher bio is written by Madison Laster


Mrs. Marie Botchie is our spotlight teacher for February.  Mrs. Botchie has been teaching at RUHS for 13 years. Born in Connecticut, raised in Orange County and the desert, she felt a calling to become a teacher.  Mrs. Botchie went to college at San Bernardino Cal State and earned a degree in Behavioral Science Sociology.  After she started subbing part time, she completely fell in love with teaching and made it her definite career path.  She currently teaches Biology, Health, Intro to Physics/Chem, and Teen Court.  Mrs. Botchie was actually a founder in starting the Teen Court program at RUHS 3 years ago.  She dedicates much of her time to ensuring the success of Teen Court, including after school court sessions, the annual SHADES (Stopping Hate and Delinquency by Empowering Students- a specialized division of Teen Court that deals with hate crimes) training at the Museum of Tolerance, and attending the annual CAYC Summit (California Association of Youth Courts).  Mrs. Botchie is beloved by all of her students, specifically her Teen Court students because her passion and dedication to Teen Court has opened opportunities for many. In her limited spare time, she enjoys crocheting, running, and chess. When challenged with the task of choosing one word to describe herself, Botchie settled on ‘Random’ and this coming from a one-time aspiring circus performer, I would say is pretty accurate.  Mrs. Botchie contributes so much to the daily lives of her students and her work with Teen Court; we are very lucky to have Mrs. Botchie in the RUHS family!
