Direct Donations

This year marks one of positive change for our school. The Roy Cloud School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is looking forward to working with the incoming administration, Principal, Ms. Diane Prystas and Assistant Principal, Ms. Kristy Jackson. Roy Cloud School is committed to providing excellent public education for our students and we are excited to work with our parents to make this year another success!

Our important enrichment programs are much loved by our children and will not exist without continued parent donations. Many people may think they are supported by the school district but they are not.

These programs depend on your financial support. We are asking each family to contribute their fair share of $650 per student to the annual Direct Donation Campaign. These important donations are a large part of what sets Roy Cloud apart from other schools and allows us to expose our children to a variety of subjects beyond just the core curriculum.  This a donation that goes directly back to supporting your child’s education.

Want to give more?  Join the Lightning Circle with your generous donation of $1000 per student or $2000 for 2 or more students.  You’ll receive special recognition on the Annual Donor List and will be invited to a cocktail party October 13 thanking you for your above and beyond support. Company match funds are not included in being a part of the Lightning Circle.  This is because not all donors have company match benefits and we want to keep the Lightning Circle inclusion fair with donors donating the same amount out of pocket.  We thank you for understanding.

Each year we have increasing participation from our community of wonderful families. This year, our goal is to have every family contribute and achieve our goal of $175,000.

Thank you to the following Roy Cloud families who have a donated so far this year.
