Riverfield Family Association
All parents and staff are members of the Riverfield Family Association (RFA), which encourages family participation and promotes educational programs, financial welfare, and service to the school community. Through the RFA, each student’s education is enhanced by parent involvement.
The RFA sponsors fundraisers during the year that support programming and keep tuition at a more affordable level. These fundraisers supplement our resources to purchase items not covered by tuition income. RFA contributes over $150,000 annually to the operating budget through events such as:
Friday Nights Out
Friday Nights Out allow parents a night out with the security of knowing their children are safe at school with familiar friends and teachers.
Run for Riverfield is a student fundraiser that concludes with a Fun Run for Pre-School and Lower School and a Color Run for Middle and Upper School.
The Sapphire Celebration is the RFA's annual auction held each spring. It includes dinner, entertainment, and live, silent, and online auction components. The Auction Committee is open to any family members interested in assisting with this large-scale fundraiser.
There are several outside programs endorsed by the RFA as ways to support the school. They include:
Box Tops 4 Education – Families are encouraged to clip the Box Tops logo seen on many household products and drop them off at the school. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents. Other chances for earning bonus Box Tops are available at www.boxtops4education.com.
Mabel’s Labels – Dishwasher and washing machine safe, these personalized labels are perfect for keeping track of items brought to school. A portion of each sale (20%) comes back to Riverfield. Visit www.mabelslabels.com to order.
Each time you make a purchase through Amazon Smile .5% will be donated to our school. Sign up at smile.amazon.com, and select Riverfield Country Day School.
