​​Our Focus in 2019-2020

The Foundation board members have been working diligently since the summer to plan programs and events including: Ice Cream Social, Surfing Madonna Beach Run, Pumpkin Patch, Jog-a-Thon, Family Fun Day, Book Fairs, Service Learning, and Parent Education Series. In addition, we help sponsor the Science Fair, Student Clubs, and Classrooms!


The Rhoades students have been asking for a library and we want to make it happen this year! In addition to our wonderful programs and events, we are excited to announce that the Foundation is committed to funding a library at the Lower Campus and enhancing the new library at the Upper Campus. However, we need your help to make this possible!!! 

The Foundation at Work

School Enhancements – By providing these school enhancements, the students' educational experiences were enriched and augmented. 

  • Virtual Reality Kit – Purchased a Google Expedition virtual reality set which included 30 glasses and a storage rack.

  • Audio/Visual Upgrades – Upgraded the AV system in the auditorium.

  • Tents - Designed and purchased two multi-use canopy tents.

Student/Staff/Parent Support – By collaborating together with the school and supporting these activities, we bring the community together and help grow the moral character of all involved.   

  • Service Learning - Continued support of service learning projects throughout the year including Feeding America, Toys for Tots, and the “Grow What You Throw” Rhoades Garden and Compost Project.

  • Parent Education Series – Sponsorship of three Parent Education Series speakers for both parents and students.

  • Pizza Friday – Offered pizza, veggies, fruit, drinks, and cookies to students throughout the year.

  • Faculty Appreciation Events – Provided numerous opportunities to show our teachers and staff how much we appreciate what they do for our students, including catered lunches, snacks, and keepsakes.

  • Classrooms, Middle School Clubs - Provided funds for all classrooms and middle school clubs that were used to purchase new materials and equipment as well as club t-shirts.

  • Parent Directory – Created and printed a family directory.

  • Middle School Dances – Funded a DJ and photo booth at all of the middle school dances.

  • Ping Pong – Purchased new paddles and balls.

This year we have been amazed not only by the incredibly generous donations we received but also by the abundance of volunteers who have helped throughout this year’s events. Without your support, time, and talents, all of the events put on by the Foundation would not be possible. We truly thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and we are excited to start planning next year's events at both campuses.
