2020 Rummel Creek Elementary PTA
Family Underwriting Campaign
RCE’s Family Underwriting Campaign is the one donation opportunity where 100% of the funds received are used at RCE. Your contributions are tax-deductible. Under the new CARES Act, even individuals who do not itemize can deduct up to $300 from their annual gross income, and cash contribution limits have been raised for gifts to public charities. Contributions are more important than ever to help fund new initiatives during this challenging time. Due to the current situation, the district will not allow events such as Fall Festival to take place. Each year, the RCE Fall Festival raises roughly $45,000 and without that fundraiser we are really relying on the support of our friends and families to help RCE continue to meet the needs of our children and staff. Any amount makes a difference… our school has new needs. Funds will be used to purchase masks for students and faculty, remote learning software and additional cleaning supplies. Your contribution will help us ensure our children are highly protected and given the best learning environment even in a less than ideal circumstance. In addition, contributions fund the following staff positions and programs that are not funded by the district and would not be possible without you:
- FIVE staff positions (two math interventionists, two reading interventionists, and the assistant librarian)
- 2 field trips per grade
- Teacher workshops/continuing education
- Grade level plays
- Hands on Science
- Outdoor Learning Center
- Science Fair
- Technology upgrades and cultural programs
Our RCE children receive the highest quality education, so please help us make sure we can continue to support our wonderful teachers and special programs. Let’s continue the tradition of tremendous support for RCE to ready our kids and our school for success at the highest level!
