Virtual PTO Giving Tree is Back

You may have seen our Giving Tree at parent teacher conferences last month allowing RBHS parents to designate their PTO donation to a specific PTO sponsored event of their choice.  We are happy to let you know that we are taking it virtual.

The RBHS PTO sponsors some really fantastic programs here at RBHS but we can’t do it without your help. We are asking for your donations this holiday season to ensure we can continue running all of our programs. When donating, if one of these events is dear to your heart, please let us know that you want to put your donation toward that event.  It is a great way to ensure that your money works towards something important to you.

PTO Sponsored Events:

Prom Tickets – The PTO works with the administration to purchase prom tickets for students who could otherwise not afford to attend prom.

MLK Service Project – The PTO works with the RB NHS students to collect items and build basic survival kits for the homeless.

Day of Service – This PTO sponsored event unites hundreds of students, faculty, and parents in working in our community.  Last year we cut down invasive trees, planted new trees, spread sand at the volleyball court in North Riverside, and picked up hundreds of bags of garbage as we cleaned up parks, rivers, and neighborhoods.

Summer Academic Leadership Grants – the PTO provides scholarship grants for students who are participating in a summer academic or leadership activity/camp.  Last year, we provided grants to almost a dozen students.

Teacher and Staff Grants – The PTO provides funding for lots of different academic, leadership, and extracurricular events here at RBHS.

To donate, please click on the Paypal link below.  You’ll be asked to enter your donation amount and you can also select which event you would like those funds applied toward.
