FUNDRAISING AND VOLUNTEERING WITH THE PTSA
Programs and activities sponsored by the Rio Americano PTSA are made possible through financial contributions made by families, staff, and community supporters. Below are just a few of the ways the Rio Americano PTSA raises money to support the various programs, activities and scholarships for the students and families at Rio Americano High School. Parents are encouraged and welcomed to help plan these fundraisers and events. For further information on any of our fundraisers please contact the PTSA president at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the PTSA home page https://www.sanjuan.edu/Page/1074.
We begin each year with our Membership Drive and Direct Donation Campaign (though donations are accepted all year long). This is an easy way to jump-start our efforts and provide cash flow for the first of the school year activities and programs. Donations are tax deductible. Your donation will be noted in our Rio PTSA Newsletter and very much appreciated. For more information, please read the letter from our PTSA President.
The Duck Derby is the highlight of our year! Since, 2015, students, families, community members, and faculty/staff can purchase a rubber ducky for the great duck dive held in October during the homecoming festivities. Each of the classes chooses an administrator or faculty member to dive into the school’s pool to “choose” a lucky duck as the winner of a prize. Information is available at the beginning of every school year.
Just before winter arrives, we host our Wreath Sale. Purchase beautiful nursery grown centerpieces, wreathes, and more to brighten your home or as gifts for family and friends or your staff. Pre-orders are taken in October and November with pick up or delivery the first week of December. A great way to brighten anyone’s day. Information is distributed via the school’s homepage in October.
It's easy to raise money for Rio Americano High School all year long through our Scrip Program and it doesn't have to cost you a thing extra! Ask your friends and family to support our school too. Each of these special programs is available to any interested individual. Just visit our partner organization in this endeavor, the Rio Americano Athletic Boosters for more information!
