Riverview High School needs your help to purchase and install a digital sign in front of the school. Our current marquee out front on Proctor Road is decades old and broken beyond repair.  We’re so grateful to the class of 1998 for donating it years ago, but it’s time to upgrade.

The cost for a new electronic marquee is approximately $50,000 for a 10-foot tall digital sign located in a place where as many students and parents can see it.

We’re asking members of the RHS community to help us fund for this project.  It’s the number one priority on the Principal’s Wish List as a way to build stronger ties and communicate better.

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
