Red Hill Student Store:  Donations Needed!

Holiday Gift Ideas for Your Rocket! 

Looking for holiday gift ideas for your Rocket? Together with our Red Hill staff, the PTA has created an Amazon store with ideas that are grade-specific for our kids! In addition to popular book titles,

many of the ideas in the store support the learning that is happening in our classrooms. Check back often, as new items may be added!

Red Hill Recommends: Gift Ideas for Your Rocket!

These products are merely suggestions that can be purchased as gifts for your child! When you purchase through this list, Amazon links your purchase to the PTA (not your personal information) and donates a percentage of your purchase (between 2% and 15%; average of 4%-6%) back to Red Hill. While you are purchasing items that are popular and supporting your child's education, you are also helping Red Hill!

CHiPs for Kids: Toy Drive 2016
Red Hill is participating in the annual CHiPs for Kids toy drive!  

Each year, the California Highway Patrol collects toys for children and families in need during the holidays. They are given to children who attend schools adopted by our local sheriff's station and to children of members of the United States Armed Forces serving overseas.

You can participate in this tradition by donating a new, unwrapped toy, which has a value of at least $10 and is appropriate for children between the ages of one and 16 years old.

Collection bins for new, unwrapped toys will be located in the front office until Thursday, 12/15.

Save Your Box Tops and Support RH!
The Box Tops for Education (BTFE) program helps Red Hill Elementary earn 10 cents for every Box Top you clip, and those dimes add up fast- each school can earn up to $20,000 per year!!

Use THIS collection sheet or even a Ziploc bag and turn the Box Tops in to the Red Hill front office or to your child's teacher.  Include your child's name and teacher's name, and your student will be receiving a "Caught in the Act" for every 10 Box Tops turned in.

Thank you for supporting Red Hill Elementary!! 

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!
