FALL

WALKATHON: This event is the biggest fundraiser for RHPTA. Students receive donations from family, friends and community businesses. Last year, proceeds exceeded $42,000! At the culmination of the four-week donation drive we celebrate with an all school walk around the neighborhood. Family and friends are encouraged to join in on this exciting event!

NEW FAMILY WELCOME DINNER:
 A new event that will be a casual gathering for new parents to meet with veteran RH parents to become better acquainted with our great school.

CARNIVAL: This is a fun night in which students enjoy an old fashioned carnival complete with a cakewalk and haunted house.

STORYBOOK PARADE:
 Students dress as their favorite character from a book and parade through the halls for this special tradition. 

PUMPKIN PATCH: Each year our children are invited to decorate (no carving) pumpkins and display in the lobby of the school the week of Halloween. On Friday, pumpkins that are left are donated. 

CAREER DAY: Parents and community members share their careers or hobbies with the students.


 SPRING

RIDGLEA HILLS PARENT PARTY: This is an exciting evening for parents that will include dinner and an auction. It is held off campus.

HOT DOG SUPPER: Volunteers assist with serving hot dogs on this family night. The fundraiser also includes raffle basket prizes as well as sign-ups for children's grade-level parties throughout the spring.

TALENT SHOW: Various student (and sometimes teacher!) groups and individuals display their talents and put on a fabulous show at an off-site location.

FINE ARTS DAY: This is a day of artist demonstration and hands-on art experiences for the students. Each class rotates through “workshops” where they will meet artists, hear musicians, see dancers and participate in creating some amazing projects. One of the absolute best days of the school year!

PUBLIC SCHOOLS WEEK: Each year public schools week is celebrated with a number of events including a special visit from the Fort Worth Zoo.
