It’s time for the Richardson Heights Elementary PTA’s annual Heights Community Campaign! Families and community members are invited to make a contribution that will help fund student programs, curriculum enrichment and learning support at Heights elementary.
Your child will be coming home with a packet to start the donation drive. We are asking all families to please participate this year! Our goal this school year is to raise $10,000, or just $20 per student. In addition to funding annual PTA operations such as educational assemblies, parent education, teacher appreciation and fun school events, we hope to raise enough money to subsidize the STAR Teacher Fund, which will allow Heights teachers to request funding for items such as school supplies, field trip expenses and books.
Contributions to the Heights Community Campaign are 100% tax-deductible and every cent of every dollar goes directly to serve all of our students. The Heights Community Campaign is your chance to make a difference at Richardson Heights Elementary.
We need your help and very THANKFUL for your support! To learn more about the Heights Community Campaign and to donate, please Click Here>>

Highly engaging magician and comedian James Wand encouraged Heights students to make our school a bully-free zone through his Operation Bully Free program. In between squeals of laughter, students learned how to identify bullying and how to help stop it: 1) If you find yourself confronted by a bully, do your best to walk away with you head held up high; 2) If you or a friend are being bullied, you need to let a teacher know so they can help; and 3) Create a community of fantastic friends that all look out for one another and encourage a community of kindness. All great messages to remember as we move forward into the school year. Thank you Mr. Wand!
