RNE Foundation’s Annual Fall Campaign HAS BEGUN!

Our goal is to raise $35,000 during the fall campaign and we rely on family and community contributions to help us reach this goal. Your donations are 100% tax-deductible and every dollar supports our students. Your generous contributions will go towards:

  • Supporting RNE’s Science Lab at four days per week: The science lab is SOLELY funded by RNEF including Mrs. Howard’s salary and all supplies for 900+ students.
  • Purchasing new technology: Principal Lilly asked the Foundation to purchase new technology to facilitate individualized learning across all grades. The Foundation’s goal is to equip every classroom with enough laptops or iPads for a 2:1 student to device ratio, allowing teachers and students to utilize state-of-the-art programs for individualized learning, research, journaling, and more.


RNEF needs your generous investment to help us meet these goals. We ask that families consider paying $125 per student attending RNE. Or, you may want to contribute “a day of science lab” which operates at $400 per day. Or you can fund an iPad which is $560 per device. Visit RNEF’s website to donate online or download the pledge form if you prefer to pay by check.

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who purchased books from our Book Fair! We were amazed by the support from our school community. Profits made go directly to our Media Center and will be used to update our collection and support the programs we offer through the Media Center. Thank you!
