The RHSPTA is a non-profit organization that supports Randolph Heights’ students, families, teachers and staff by raising money to enrich learning opportunities and help our students and teachers with special initiatives. The PTA relies on your financial support.
We recognize not all families are able to contribute financially. Donations of your time and talent are also greatly appreciated. Watch for ways to get involved, or contact us any time with your ideas.
The PTA needs to raise $45,000-$60,000 annually just to keep up with our regular activities, such as arts programming, funding for field trips, teacher grants, health and safety support, teacher appreciation activities, and books and other materials.
There are several fundraisers managed by the PTA, including RHS apparel and concessions at all-school events as well as the following major annual fundraisers, each responsible for a large portion of the PTA’s budget.
Some families would prefer to support the PTA directly with a cash donation. Your cash donation is tax-deductible and 100% of your contribution directly supports Randolph Heights School. Direct donations allow us to reduce the use of professional fundraisers.
Fun Run (Fall)
Combining fun physical activity with fundraising, the Fun Run is our largest fundraising event. We are looking forward to our new partnership with Get Movin’ for our next Fun Run in 2021!
February is “I Love to Read” month and all students are encouraged to read daily and collect pledges from family and friends for time spent reading at home. Prizes are awarded for participation and money earned. All pledges collected will be used to purchase books and to foster reading environments in classrooms! This month-long initiative is a student favorite that raises money and has lots of fun along the way. Read-a-Thon combines fostering a life-long love of reading with special “reward” days earned for reading minutes, such as Pajama Day and Super-Hero Day, and culminates in a family movie night at school based on that year’s theme.
Spring Fundraiser and Silent Auction (April/May)
This “parents night out” event allows parents to socialize outside of school with RHS families while raising funds for the school. The silent auction raises $5,000-$10,000 to support PTA activities.
Smaller Fundraisers (Ongoing)
Each fall we offer Chinook Books for sale, for which RHS keeps 50% of the proceeds. We also partner with local businesses such as Davanni’s, Punch Pizza, Gerten’s and others for designated fundraising days.
Many employers will match the donations made by their employees. Here's our information:
