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. 

Red Hill currently has 179 participants signed up! If we reach 500, the school will meet Mr. Neddersen's Principal's Challenge! This means that Mr. Neddersen will "wow" our students with a fun and exciting reward. Keep those registrations coming!!

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

2016-17 Birthday Book Club
If you are looking for a wonderful way to honor your child's birthday, while giving a lasting gift to the Red Hill Library, Birthday Book Club is for you!  Students in all grades are eligible to join the Birthday Book Club and create a special birthday memory.  Simply sign up HERE.  The cost is $20.

There will be three Birthday Book Club times scheduled throughout the year.  During these special times, celebrants will come to the library for a birthday treat and will select a new, pre-purchased book to donate to our library.  A special label with your child's name will be placed inside the book for posterity, and the birthday honoree can be the first to check it out from the library.   Afterwards, all Birthday Book Club books will be permanently added to our library collection so that they can be read and enjoyed by all Red Hill students for years to come.

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.

You can periodically record your volunteer hours online HERE

If unable to use the online form, 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!
