Throughout the year, the PTG will hold fundraising events which support field trips, in-school activities, and new materials. The PTG provides a variety of fundraisers to encourage involvement from our RTES community. Currently scheduled fundraisers include the following:
Kidstuff Coupon Book
KidStuff Coupon books are packed with a ginormous collection of the best local and national coupons! In September, every student will bring home a KidStuff coupon book for parents to peruse. Additionally, KidStuff is offering a new Coupon App included with every book. These books may be purchased by the family or sent back to the school. Kidstuff coupon books bring in a 50% profit for our school!
In October, students will bring home a packet of information including a catalog of items that can be ordered from Charleston Wrapping Paper. Orders will be taken through October and into November. Delivery of ordered items are scheduled to arrive prior to the December holidays.
Gertrude Hawk Chocolates
RTES participates in the Gertrude Hawk seasonal brochure fundraiser program, a simple, delicious and profitable way to raise money for our school. The fundraiser takes place in the winter and/or spring.
Scrip Gift Cards

The Boxtops program is moving to a fully digital format. Currently, physical boxtops are still being accepted. Boxtops can be placed in a Ziploc bag and turned into the homeroom teacher or the main office. To participate in the digital program, simply download the Boxtops app, and scan your store receipt. The app will find participating products purchased at any store and instantly add cash to your school's earnings online. For more information visit https://www.boxtops4education.com/

Spirit nights are a wonderful opportunity for our students and families to participate in an activity outside of school. These businesses provide up to 100% of the proceeds to benefit the school. Families may invite non-RTES friends to join in these events.
