2016 Rocket Launch: Fall Fundraising Campaign
The 2016-2017 Red Hill PTA is shooting for the stars this school year with our annual fundraising campaign, Rocket Launch. Its aim is to launch our kids’ future success by providing the needed funds for educational enrichment programs in FINE ARTS, TECHNOLOGY, ACADEMICS AND CLASSROOM SUPPORT.
Rocket Launch, our primary fundraiser for programming for the year, has begun and will continue until September 30th.
Without your donations, these enrichment programs will NOT continue! Our goal is to raise $45,000 which we can easily reach and surpass if every family donates at least $200 to get our students BLASTING OFF into learning.
HOW YOU CAN HELP? Your donation of $200, $350, $500 or more will go directly to funding these educational opportunities for our children. This year, we will be thanking our generous donors by recognizing them on the Red Hill campus, in our weekly e-blast, and in our school directory.
$1,000 or more! Your generous donation of $1,000 or more will not only support our students, but also guarantee a parking spot at the following Red Hill events for the 2016/2017 school year: Back to School Night (September), Holiday Programs (December) and Open House (May).

In addition, many corporations have employee matching gift programs. Contact your Human Resources Department to see what types of matching options your company provides!
All donations are tax deductible.

The Scholastic Book Fair will be at Red Hill from October 10th to 14th! The exciting theme for our fall 2016 Book Fair is Bookaneer: Where Books are the Treasure! This season's Book Fair will be a swashbuckling celebration full of adventurous activities and hundreds of books kids want to read.
Parents who visit the book fair before or after their conference will receive a "Golden Ticket" to be entered into a drawing for a chance for their child to win a free book ($10 value). Drawings will be held daily. Parents can also leave their students in the book fair while they meet with their teachers.
We need your help! Please sign up online HERE to help volunteer at our Book Fair! We need lots of help with set-up, tear-down, and working the fair.
Dino Dash is Coming!!
The 26th Annual Dinosaur Dash is coming! This year's race will take place on Sunday, November 6 at The Market Place in Tustin.
The Dino Dash is the biggest fundraising event of the year for the Tustin Public Schools Foundation. TPSF is a non-profit organization that funds programs and materials that enhance the educational experiences of TUSD students.
Red Hill will earn $6 for each person who registers online from our school. Registration fees go up on October 20th, so register soon!
Tell your friends, neighbors, and family members to sign up for Dino Dash and select Red Hill as their school!
Can't participate on November 6? Consider a Runnership! Runnerships allow students to participate that are unable to afford the $15 fee. TPSF will contribute $6 for each online Runnership donated to the school the donor chooses (not the school of the student using the runnership).
Online registration is now open, so REGISTER TODAY.
It's a fun day for all ages to run, walk, and ride for education! For more information please go to http://www.tpsf.net.
Don't Forget to Record Your Volunteer Hours!
Each year, the Red Hill PTA is required to report the number of volunteer hours that are completed by our school community
Volunteer hours are collected and reported to maintain the PTA's federal tax exemption status. As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the PTA must receive one-third of its support from the general public. The recorded hours from volunteers are proof of this.
Please stop by the front office and record the hours you have volunteered for Red Hill students, staff, and community! There is a clipboard labeled "Volunteer Hours" near the sign-in sheet on the counter in the front office.
Thank you for your support!
