Donate to the General Fund!!!

Good News!! Rio’s California Standard Test scores exceed state standards and continue to rise!

Parent Alliance funding of essential school wide programs and curriculum is a critical component of the outstanding education here at Rio. Through direct donations to our General Fund (not Classroom funds) and fundraising, we must raise the equivalent of $175 per child to fund critical programs such as art, math and reading specialists, language arts, and many others.

Please consider making a direct donation to the General Fund. Isn’t the quality of your child’s education worth just $20 per month?

You can make a single payment, or break it up over the course of the year. We accept checks and credit cards. Donation forms are available in the office, or can be requested through our blog. Checks should be made out to RDMPA. Thank you for supporting our school!
