DANCE-A-THON

The RSS Spring Fundraiser, the Dance-A-Thon, is a fun way to raise money for PTA Programs by getting our students up and moving by dancing the morning away! The Dance-A-Thon has become RSS PTA’s largest fundraiser and one of the students’ favorite events!

BOOK FAIR

The Scholastic Book Fair is a hit every year. RSS has recently been made a “Signature Fair”, a distinction only given to a handful of schools nationwide. Each year our Book Fair team transports us to another world where we get lost in books! The Book Fair team also hosts Literacy Night which is a fun night of book shopping, food, and activities.

 

GROWING GREAT

Growing Great is a nationwide community-based nonprofit nutrition education organization dedicated to inspiring children and adults to adopt healthy eating habits, decreasing the risk of obesity & disease. Our goal is to help children and families understand where our food comes from, appreciate that food serves a purpose in our overall health and has an impact on our longevity and well-being.

 

FUN FRIDAY

Who doesn’t like getting a popsicle after school on Fridays? Well, PTA does and that is what Fun Fridays is all about! Select Fridays, PTA sells popsicles and other fun items after school for $1.

 

POP-UPS

Pop-Up events are held on Fridays, once a month, during all lunch times. Dance party, beach balls, bubbles, and life-sized games have all been used to make pop-up events fun for the students.

The Reflections Program provides opportunities for students themselves creatively and to receive positive recognition for original works of art inspired by a pre-selected theme, while increasing community awareness and the importance of art in education.

SPIRITWEAR

We want everyone to be able to be proud of our school! We sell t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, picnic blankets, water bottles, and much more! We do not profit from this program … we just want you to look good walking around town!

Zip-Loc Bags, Mac N Cheese boxes and much more. Cut, save, and hand into your teacher anytime throughout the year!

October 23rd- October 31st. This program aims to teach students drug prevention education. At RSS, we use this week to teach our children the many ways to live a healthier and active lifestyle.
