 We are half way to our RPA fundraising goal! Donate today!

Thanks to your donations, our children will now have a drinking fountain that fills water bottles, custom seating to facilitate learning, and a new white board for the library.

We still need funds for the Imagination Playground (which is really cool, see below for more details), Chromebooks for all, and the staff room makeover!

Presidents' Message
Dear Parents and Guardians,

It looks like Spring is finally arriving!  We hope you have a chance to enjoy the green hills and flower covered valleys.

We are heading into that final stretch of school and it always gets very busy.  There are a number of events coming up including, the High School Information Night and Fair on April 27th and Field Studies Week starting May 8th.

So before those events take place, if you've missed the opportunity to donate to one of the several great projects at the Spring Social - there are some great items that need a little more support!

In addition to Imagination Playground Blocks and Chromebooks for all, the long over-due up-dating of the Staff Room needs about $2,000 more to make the goal.  Checks can be made out to the RPA and dropped off in the front office.

Many many thanks to your generous donations!

All the very best,


Mark and Phil

Playground W hat is an Imagination Playground,
and why is it awesome? !

Visualize a life-size set of tinker toys that you and your peers can manipulate to create your own playground or even a work of art!

David Rockwell realized that many of the elements with the greatest value to children were inexpensive and portable. Although traditional playgrounds can easily cost in the millions to build, portable imagination playgrounds can be put together for less than $6,000.   Click here to learn more.

Please help upgrade our children's play space,
