Thank you to National Honor Society students who made phone calls asking for pledges during the Foundation's second annual scholarship drive. One of the goals of the Foundation for Rushford-Peterson Schools is to promote and award scholarship opportunities (post-high school training or college) to current high school seniors and alumni of Rushford-Peterson Schools. Once again the drive was successful and over 80 pledge letters were sent out. We are hoping to beat last years total of $2,200.
Dates have been set for the 2nd annual Conquer the Bluff and Tri-City Challenge. This year, we will be coordinating Conquer the Bluff with a home RP Football game on Thursday, October 8, 2105. The Tri-City Challenge event will take place on Saturday, October 10, 2015.
Stay tuned for more details.
Thank you to all who gave to the Foundation for Rushford-Peterson Schools on Give to the Max day on November 13, 2014. The Rushford Community Foundation (RCF) raised a total of $3,090, which was just slightly more than our challenger, Harmony Area Foundation. Jen Hengel, Chair for RCF, presented the winnings to RP Schools of 100 children's books.
