  Welcome to Roland Park K-8 IB Magnet School for International Studies

The PTSA would like to welcome all of our returning families back to Roland Park for what we hope will be our best year yet! We hope all of you had a relaxing and fun-filled summer. We are already busy planning and preparing for many programs, upcoming events and fun family activities. The PTSA would also like to extend a warm welcome to all of our new students and families! 

We look forward to maintaining a continuous dialogue throughout the year. We encourage both new and returning families to become part of the school community, join the PTSA and actively volunteer your time and talents. There are many ways to volunteer at Roland Park and we encourage you to find a way that best fits into your schedule. If you would like to volunteer, please view the volunteer listings here on the website Volunteer Here. Without all of our amazing volunteers, the wonderful programs, events and functions that occur each year would not at all be possible.

Thank you, 

Angela Haskins
PTSA President 2014-2015
