Formal Invitations are going in the mail any day now, but sign ups are online for Auction this year. So click here to buy Patron or Regular Tickets for the February 22 Auction!
Even though they reached us after Invitations had gone to print, we appreciate their pearly white sponsorship! They join our other generous Auction Sponsors:Dunthorpe Properties
The Bank of Oswego
Freeman Motor Company
Portland Knee ClinicGot Instruments?
If your child has stopped playing their instrument or you have an extra one, the grade school would LOVE it if you would consider donating it to the RGS music program. As some of you know, playing a musical instrument is mandatory in the 5/6 at RGS. PTC is trying to relieve the burden on some families by expanding the lending library. Your instrument does not need to be in pristine condition; RGS PTC will pay for repairs. Either give it to Sam to have transported to the grade school, or drop it off at the RGS front office. If you have any questions, please contact Molly Scholz at email@example.com.
We asked our past Auction Patrons if they wanted to extend their support another year and demonstrate early to the entire community their confidence in Riverdale and excitement about Auction. The vast majority of them said YES! Patron tickets are $250 instead of $125– thus helping to underwrite the costs of Auction so that the money we raise that night can go straight to enhancing the academics, arts and culture at Riverdale. Please join these generous families and sign uphere to buy Patron or Regular Tickets! Special thanks to those Patrons who no longer have children at Riverdale but financially and socially support Riverdale!Pereira Sears Teed

McFaddenEducation is the Foundation – Thank you!
Thank you to all the families who made contributions to the Riverdale Foundation’s Annual Campaign! Our families have always stepped up to support our students, and this year was no exception. 68% of our families made contributions, and together, we raised $824,745 for our children’s education. What a wonderful accomplishment! Although the Fall campaign has officially wound down, if you would still like to contribute, you may do so at www.riverdalefoundation.org. It’s never too late!
The Riverdale Robotics Team is looking for students interested in marketing, computer programming, designing and building the hardware and electronics of robots, driving robots in competitions and having fun doing it all! The main build and competition season is in the winter. Students may work around sports schedules as needed.
Students wishing to explore or join the robotics team this year, please send the following information to Fran Wiegand at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Student’s name phone number, and email; and
- Contact parent’s name, email and phone number.
WANTED: Your Used Laptop
In PTC’s continuing effort to save money while we raise money, we are seeking the donation of a PC laptop with the following capacity: Dell or any major brand with i5 or faster i7 processor with at least 4 gigs of RAM (6 or 8 preferred). It will be used to run Greater Giving Event Software which enables us to track the many donations that we receive for ultimate sale at Auction, it provides support the night of Auction, and it allow us to wrap up efficiently post-Auction. This is only for PTC events and will be stored in the PTC closet when not in use. Please contact email@example.com to donate.
In an effort to share Riverdale’s story with all of our elected state officials, we’d like to track our community’s presence throughout Oregon. If you own property outside the Portland metro area, please contact Leslie Goss at firstname.lastname@example.org.All Hands On Deck!
