The Riverdale Parent Teacher Clubs at both schools strive to enrich our children’s education by enhancing curriculum and activities, encouraging parent involvement, supporting student participation, and fostering communication to strengthen our community. The PTC funds specific programs and services for the grade school that are not in the District budget.
Every Fall, the RGS PTC asks families to pay a one-time back-to-school fee per student. This one-time per-student back-to-school PTC Fee is separate from any fees paid to the school. Much of this fee goes to programs that directly show community appreciation for our teachers. For a breakdown of the activities this fee has supported historically please see the graph below. This year, the PTC Fee will support similar initiatives in different formats than years past.
