Richardson Heights Elementary Logo

A strong school like Heights Elementary School makes our neighborhood stronger. And a strong neighborhood like Heights Park makes a school stronger.

Whether you are a Heights Elementary parent or taxpayer, the school is part of all our lives. And the school needs our support.

The Heights Elementary PTA is launching its Heights Community Campaign fundraiser on Sept. 18. Running through Oct. 20, the campaign will help finance Heights PTA operations for the upcoming year. The goal is to raise $10,000 (equivalent to $20 per student). One-hundred percent of your donation benefits students and 100 percent is tax-deductible.

Donations will help fund student programs, curriculum enrichment, learning support and subsidize the STAR Teacher Fund. Funds also will help cover items such as school supplies, field trip expenses and books.
