Day of Service Helpers Needed

RBHS PTO’s Annual Day of Service will be held this year on Saturday, April 29th from 8:00am to 12:00pm.  On Day of Service, students, staff and community members come together for a morning of community work.  We pick up trash and debris, plant trees, paint, mulch and pull out invasive species throughout the many parks and on the banks of the many waterways surrounding RB.  RBHS PTO’s Day of Service is a signature event for our high school and the most publicly visible demonstration of our students giving back to the community which supports them.

At school last week, your children were encouraged to sign up to participate in this event.  Check to see if your student is signed up.  If not, encourage them to participate.  It is a great way to earn service hours.

We also will need volunteers to help with event set-up, event clean-up, serve breakfast, serve lunch or be a team leader.   If you would like to help, click on the link below.

Any questions, please contact event chairs Lisa Gaynor at or David Kodama at
