Welcome to Riverview High School 2018-2019!

The RHS Foundation is made up of parents, alumni, teachers, and community members working together with one clear mission: To provide financial support to RHS students, staff and school when there is no other funding available.

Whatever our Riverview community needs, we provide. But we can’t do it alone. The success of the RHS Foundation relies on gifts from parents, staff, alumni, and the Sarasota community at large. Our goal for this new school year is 100% PARTICIPATION from parents, staff, and alumni.

Every single gift is crucial; no gift is too small. Your gift sends the important message to your student that you value their school, Riverview High School, and want to ensure the best for them and all students.  Complete the form below to sign up as a member of the Riverview High School Foundation team.

We're excited to have an amazing 2018-2019 school year with your help and support. 

Thank you, 

Jeanne Armour, RHSF President

Way to go RHS Lacrosse!! 🥍15-1, 16-4, 18-8, 21-14 and 15-4. These are the scores of each of the losses the Lady Rams experienced against the St. Stephen’s Falcons since the Rams began FHSAA lacrosse back in 2016. Last night, it would take an entire team effort for the Rams to pick up their first win against the 3-time, reigning District Champions. On multiple occasions throughout the game, the Rams were able to overcome 2-goal deficits, and in the final minutes, secure their first win against St. Stephen’s.

The comeback was a result of some great draw control by Junior Hannah Boggs and tremendous scoring support by Seniors Eden Byholm (6 Goals) and Annalise McDonnell (3 Goals) and Junior Gabriella Connelly (3 Goals & 1 Assist). Great job by the defense in the second half, especially Freshman Clara Keyvani, who was able to limit any further damage by the Falcon’s Senior Kendall Miller, who scored 8 goals. The Lady Rams improve their record to 8-1.
