Extended Families are the Best!

Elementary school is a unique time in a child's life. Having family members who are involved helps students feel confident and be successful. It's also a great way to connect and make memories that will last a lifetime. 

There are many ways grandparents, aunts, uncles and other family members can support students at Ritchie Park.

Grandparents and grandchildren share a magical bond. You can bring some of that magic to Ritchie Park by joining our PTA.

You'll find many ways to be involved with the school (if you choose) and you'll stay up-to-date on what's happening all year. But just by joining, you'll be helping out.

More Ways You Can Help

make a donation

The PTA fund supports a lot: family nights, fun events, student scholarships, class supplies and more. Online donations are a quick and easy way to help us pay for these initiatives. 


give just by shopping for groceries

You can give to Ritchie Park--at no cost to you--whenever you buy groceries. With Giant and Harris Teeter programs, a percentage of your grocery bill is automatically donated to our school. It only takes a minute to sign up and the donations continue all year.


Box Tops!


You can help us raise money by cutting out Box Tops from packages of items you regularly buy. Each box top is worth 10 cents, and when everyone collects, it really adds up. It doesn't take a lot of time, and there's even an app you can use.
