We plan to take class photos this year so please ensure your student is in school and refrain from dismissing your student, if avoidable. Pictures will be taken from 8:50am through 12:30pm or so.

RO Boosterthon Information and Fun Run Times

RO Families!

Our R.O. Fun Run has begun, and we’re on our way to reaching our goal of $60,000. Thank you so much to our families who have registered and shared their donation pages to get us to this point!

Log into MYBOOSTER.COM to learn more about tonight’s WEEKEND CHALLENGE and to share your donation page!

Once you register here are just a few of the great features for you to use:

  • Double Your Donation. After giving your donation, you can see if your employer will match your donation. Already donated? Use this link to search employer matching anytime.

  • Share Button. Use our easy templates to get the word out to family and friends about how they can support our school.

  • Student Star Video. Uncomfortable with asking others for donations directly? No problem! Simply upload a photo of your student to MYBOOSTER.COM to create a fun, engaging video starring your student. Share this on Facebook or via email or text and let the video do the talking for you.

The Fun Run is taking place on Friday, October 7th at OAHS Muscato Stadium as follows:

Grade 4 - 9:00am-10:00am

Grade 3 - 10:10am-11:10am

Grade 5 - 11:30am-12:30pm

Parents/family members are welcome to come to this event and cheer on your student as they run or walk laps. Because we don't need anyone to volunteer, if you are able to attend you don't need a CORI form/check. Boosterthon staff will run this event and our RO staff will be supervising the students.

Thank you for supporting RO students and staff with your generous donations!

Student Activity Fee

In order to help defray/cover the costs of transportation and entrance/registration fees for enrichment activities, the Easton Public School system has been collecting activity fees. Because of these fees, our district is also able to send our students to Sheep Pasture/NRT for enriching outdoor learning throughout the year. It is a valuable and unique learning opportunity for our students.

The elementary fee structure is $45.00 for grades 1-6.

For your convenience, payment can be made through the following website: If you are only able to pay by check, please make the check payable to Easton Public Schools and in the memo, please indicate it is for the student activity fee and include your child’s name. We do not accept any cash payments. Please ensure you do not pay more than once. Unfortunately, the system does not prevent this.

Please do NOT use the MySchoolBucks app. It is not functioning properly at this time.

Please note: Students who are on free/reduced lunch are exempt from this fee.

Frequently Asked Questions & WHO TO CONTACT

I’m using my cell phone and I do not see the Activity Fee Link.

The MySchoolBucks app does not support all functionality and you will not see the Activity Fee Link. You will need to log in using a computer.
