Help Make Sure #GreatThingsAreHappeningAtRio
PTSA GoFundMe Campaign
Rio PTSA is the only Rio community group that supports the entire student body as well as Rio staff. But this year it lost its biggest funraiser – The Senior Showcase – losing at least $20,000 that was already accounted for and now Duck Derby proceeds and PTSA membership dollars are being stretched thin.
With the loss of this fundraiser, PTSA has created this gofundme account to be able to bring all the things to the Students, Counselors and Teachers that enhance life at Rio Americano.
Any donation for Rio Americano High School PTSA amount will make a large IMPACT.
The money raised will help each student and every staff member. It will be used to fund the powerful program “Every 15 Minutes” to touch the kids’ future selves in a positive way, and to purchase items for the teachers that help them reach the students and teach their best.
Together we can help with Student Aid, Senior Scholarships, College Preparation and Information (via Rio and Beyond), Paper for Teachers, School Library support, Student Spirit and Pride projects, and Staff Requests (support your child’s teacher!). The PTSA supports Academic Competitions (go Forensics and Rio Robotics!), Parent and Student Educational Programs, and our biggest event, Every 15 minutes, a $25,000 program which creates drunk and distracted driving awareness.
Make an IMPACT. Donate $11. Or donate MORE. Rio needs you.
|It’s Junior Prom &|
Senior Ball Time!
Men’s Wearhouse will donate $5 to the PTSA for every tuxedo rented
for Junior Prom and Senior Ball this year.
Please consider supporting Rio through the Men’s Wearhouse (1701 Ethan Way Suite A, Sacramento) when ordering your tuxedo for your special event. If you have already ordered through Men’s Wearhouse, please make sure you mention Rio Americano for us to get credit for your rental. We appreciate your consideration. Prices start at $99.
