Congratulations RLS community for continuing to support your children's education. Thank you all who supported and participated in this year's event. The total amount raised was $10,929.
A very special thanks go to the 3 top money raisers: Isa, Kennan, and Fin! The 3 of them raised 36% of the total amount collected! Let's congratulate these 3 Dolphins and their families. Your contribution will benefit all your fellow students.
Thanks to all the parents and dolphins that came out to this event. We planted a total 12 of trees along 34th Avenue. At the same time, we learned the proper way to plant a tree (It's not as easy as digging a hole, put the tree in and cover the hole!)
A special thanks go to Friends of the Urban Forest for donating all the trees. And for providing guidance along with volunteers to get the job done. If you're interested in learning more about them and the great work they do, please visit their website:

RLS PTA President
As the school year comes to a close, the PTA would like to take this opportunity to thank our RLS community for your support this year! We also want to thank Principal Lau-Yee for her great guidance and support, keeping our children safe and thriving amid all the craziness surrounding the construction.
The PTA has accomplished a great deal this year…
- The Annual Campaign raised over $45,000 -- an all-time high for our school!
- We held our first Annual Gala and Silent Auction offsite and raised over $8,000. The event provided parents, teachers, and administrators with an opportunity to have fun while raising critical funds for our school.
- Our Walkathon raised a little over $11,000, a 27% increase over last year’s totals while teaching our children the importance of fitness and exercise.
- The Family Day Raffle and BBQ gave parents, children, faculty, staff and incoming parents an opportunity to close out the year with a day of food, games and raffle prizes. The raffle raised a total of $8,150.
HOW ARE THE FUNDS SPENT?
- Outside Education: Where our kids learn about nature, science, the environment, and sustainable gardens.
- Classroom field trips that the kids enjoy throughout the year.
- Teacher stipends for classroom materials.
- Read-Out-Loud Program
- Math Tutoring
- This year, we also replaced two outdated and often broken high-capacity copier machines.
We organized several events this year to encourage community and family bonding.
- Family Game Night
- Halloween Event
- Annual Campaign Kickoff/Movie Night
- Ice Skating at the Embarcadero
- Chinese New Year Celebration
- Family Day Raffle and BBQ
DOLPHINS GIVE BACK
Our children are blessed and fortunate to have such a great support at home and at school, but not every child is afforded the same opportunity. This year we organized our first Holiday Giving Drive where the children prepared shoeboxes of toiletries and donated them to Compass Family Services which caters to homeless families in San Francisco.
We also made our annual trip to the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank, where kids and their parents helped pack food for distribution.
WE APPRECIATE YOU
We are very thankful to have a community of dedicated parents, teachers, and staff that value the education of all our children as well making sure they grow up to be well-rounded individuals. Our accomplishments are a reflection of your efforts.
A special thank you to our 2016-2017 PTA Board led by President, Tim Connolly. His guidance and motto of “thinking outside the box” has really shown to be a great success in all of the PTA’s endeavors this year. Tim’s Board this year consisted of the following members:
WE WISH YOU ALL A HAPPY AND SAFE SUMMER!!
We closed out the school year with our biggest event! Families enjoyed a day of live music, food and activities. Culminating with the drawing of raffle tickets. Congratulations to all the winners! We hope you enjoy your prizes.
Thanks to all the parent volunteers that made this event possible.
Under a glorious Spring day, our dolphins did an amazing job walking, jogging, running, and sweating to raise money for their education. Many of them walk over 15 laps, even the little dolphins!
If you haven't submitted your pledges, we are still collecting them until Friday, April 28th. You can do so by returning the envelope you received a few weeks ago. Or online by going to https://pledgestar.com/stevenson/
Each dolphin has a sticker with the number of completed laps. Please congratulate them and show your appreciation for their effort by donating. You can donate $2, $5, $10 per lap.
Every amount you can collect and donate counts. An investment in your children's education pays off over a lifetime.
Last but not least, we would like to give BIG THANKS to all the parent volunteers. Special thanks go to Melanie and Todd for organizing another outstanding Walk-A-Thon. Your dedication to our Dolphins is much appreciated by the entire RLS community.
We will leave you with some pictures and a short video of the event.
We still have few items available for bidding. If you are interested in any of the items listed, please stop by the school main office. Bidding sheets are posted on the board until March 22nd.
RLS's First Annual Gala was a big hit! Teachers, staff and parents came together for a night of great food and drinks, exceptional entertainment by Diane Yee and All That Jazz and auction items galore. Check out pictures from the memorable night.
A special thank you to One Marital Arts for taking such great care of our kids while parents enjoyed a night out!
The PTA would like to thank you all for supporting our school!

Thank you to all the families who attended our Annual Food Bank Volunteer Day. As a team, we helped pack 2,700 lbs of frozen carrots that will feed families all over the Bay Area. This was a great opportunity to show our Dolphins the importance of giving back and serving our community. We hope to be back next year!
We celebrated Chinese New Year this past Friday with a PTA-sponsored event. Our students and their families enjoyed food, games, and performances from the Mandarin All Stars program.
