Drive for Schools Fundraiser – return your sold AND unsold tickets!!!

Dear Rio Parents,

We are fast approaching the end of the Drive for Schools Fundraiser! 

For all students who have sold tickets, the last Student Prize Giveaway is this Thursday, so please turn in sold tickets ASAP. 

Your child can give them to their teacher, bring them to us at lunch on Thursday during the prize-giveaway, or you can drop them by the school office.

We need every ticket, so if your child brings in unsold tickets on Thursday, they get cool Halloween erasers.

We will also be selling and collecting sold and unsold tickets at the Harvest Festival this Friday.

Please consider using the Drive for Schools as your opportunity to give to your school, because 100% of every dollar you spend stays at Rio Del Mar Elementary.

 Thank you so much!


Book Fair

Have you visited the school library and seen all of the great books and other fun items for sale? Two more days to grab all of the books you’ll need for your family and friends (and don’t forget that books always make awesome holiday and birthday party gifts!). Also, please get your Drive For School tickets in – whether you have sold them or not. (We need everyone to return unsold tickets to the office so others can purchase them.) We’ve already raised over $4,000 and hope to exceed our goal this year!
