We are fortunate to have wonderful family support and a Parent Teacher Club (PTC) that raises a significant amount of money to support our day to day functions and our specific needs at Ridgeview. PTC will host our S.O.S. (Support Our Students) night on Monday, August 9th from 4:30-6:30 p.m. to help raise money to support our activities and events throughout the year. This is an opportunity for students to see the school, reconnect with their classmates, find out who their teacher is, purchase a school planner and learn more about our PTC. PTC Website
Our Eureka Schools Foundation also allows us to provide one of a kind enrichment opportunities for our children. More than ever before, we are looking to our community to become stakeholders with ESF, so that our children are still able to engage in the incredible enrichment opportunities that they have available in EUSD. These opportunities will only continue with community and parent support. Eureka Union School District really is an extraordinary district because of these opportunities. ESF’s first big event is the Fund Run on Sunday, September 26th. This is a fun way to get involved and support EUSD! ESF Website
