Fundraising at RSIS... why do we do it???
Well, good question! Our fundraisers bring in the money that we need to support the Intern Program, support extracurricular programs at RSI, and purchase items for our school, such as playground equipment and library books.
Club’s Choice Fall Fundraiser: The first part of September, our students bring home catalogs for specialty food, household items, giftwrap and more. This is one of our largest fundraisers and all families are highly encouraged to participate.

La Noche Sin Ninos (The Night Without Kids): This is an amazing event that you won't want to miss. Mark you calendars and book a babysitter! It is a great time to mingle with each other, dance our tails off, and raise money to support our school and Intern Program with an impressive silent auction, cash bar, appetizers, and a dance floor with DJ. RSIS families and local businesses donate items for the silent auction. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year.

General Mills Box Tops for Education: Turn those weekly shopping trips into easy cash for your school and encourage friends to do the same! Just look for the Box Tops logo on hundreds of products like Cheerios®, Hamburger Helper® and Kleenex®, in almost every aisle of the store. All you need to do is clip and send them in to your child's classroom —- each one is worth 10¢ for your school.
Tasteocracy (previously known as Food Perspectives): RSI is looking for interested parents, friends and relatives to register for taste testing. They organize consumer taste tests of new food products and they do all the calling. Most tests take less than an hour. Each time a member participates in a test, they are paid for their time and opinions (avg $35 per hour). In addition, RSI will be paid for each test you participate in ($10 per test, or the entire amount per your choice).
