Support the PTA
2020 Rhino Fund PTA Fundraising Campaign
Give Rosie Wings!
On September 15th, the PTA is launching its annual giving campaign – The Rhino Fund – to raise funds that support activities and initiatives throughout the school year. While some of our popular fall events will have to be postponed this year, one thing that can continue is our support of the wonderful Rosemary Hills teachers. In years past, our school PTA has been able to offer each teacher a reimbursement for materials to support learning in the classroom. This support will be more important than ever given this year teachers are adapting to new learning environments. We are planning to provide each teacher a $250 reimbursement to purchase learning materials for their classrooms and online learning. Other planned activities for this year include:
- Providing Rhino Ready Bags to hold school supplies that will be distributed to all students for distance learning.
- Researching new initiative options for school enrichment.
- Providing grocery gift cards to families in need from our school at Thanksgiving.
- We hope to be able to plan some of our traditional Spring community events.
- We hope to continue the service of helping facilitate 3rd grade orientation activities for 2nd graders.
2020 Planned Spending Breakdown
This year we are simplifying the giving model and eliminating the separate class funds. All donations this year will be through the Rhino Fund campaign and a PTA membership is included with each Rhino Fund gift above $15. We recognize these are incredibly challenging times and any size donation will be welcomed and used to plan for this year as it unfolds. Your tax deductible donation will be used to support the school for the 2020-2021 school year.
In 2019, we had 11% of families donate to the Rhino Fund, with an average gift of $154. Our goal in 2020 is to raise $16,000 with the participation of 20% of school families.
Historical Rhino Fund Giving
This year you can “Give Rosie Wings” through three different giving levels. Alternatively, you may choose a donation in any amount. You also have the option to choose only a PTA membership for $15. A PTA membership is included with all Rhino Fund donations above $15.
Thank you for supporting our school, our teachers, our students and our staff through your donation. Let’s all work together to help our little rhinos fly high!
