The PTA is proud of the events we have chosen to support Red Hill's programming. This year we hope to continue the numerous programs that meet the needs of the students of Red Hill and have helped define us as a Gold Ribbon School and a California Distinguished School. Every child attending Red Hill benefits from the many programs and activities funded by the PTA.
We ask families to help by participating in our fundraising efforts. Our goal is to plan something for everyone's budget and we need every family to participate! Please keep this in mind as you plan your giving this year to maintain our programming standards. With your help, we can do it!
Rocket Launch: This is our new fall fundraising campaign. If each Red Hill family graciously donates a little over $1 per family for each day of instruction, we will reach approximately 90% of our total goal. Our hope is that we raise sufficient funds to sustain our current level of programs through this campaign.
Adults-Only Fundraising Event: This yearly fundraising event is an evening of dining, dancing, and fabulous auction items. It is an evening filled with good food, good spirits, and good company. Not only is this a great fundraiser, but it is also a chance for parents to meet other Red Hill parents and build important relationships! Proceeds from this event directly benefit all the new and current programs at Red Hill.
Jog-A-Thon: Red Hill Students will be collecting pledges in May for our Jog-a-thon. Volunteers are needed to help in many areas.
Family Dinners Out: These are planned throughout the year as aneasy way to support Red Hill and get out of cooking and dishes for theevening-- great for our busy schedules! Check our the home page of our website regularly to keep informed on our Family Dinners Out and to download restaurantparticipation flyers.

The Birthday Book Club: This program allows students to have his or her name on a new book to donate to our library with minimal donation on your part.
Amazon Affiliates Program: Do you shop on Amazon? Red Hill is a part of Amazon's Affiliate program. Use our link and effortlessly generate funds for Red Hill!
Each month, Amazon pays us up to 15% of all purchases (the average is 4-6%) made by shoppers who reached Amazon through our link. That includes products sold at Amazon by other companies, too. Amazon links your purchase to the PTA (not your personal information) and donates a percentage of your purchases back to Red Hill.
