Rancho Romero Education Fund

Why do we need Annual Giving Donations, and where does all of that money go at Rancho? 

Why do we need Annual Giving Donations, and where does all of that money go at Rancho? 

This year at Rancho Romero, the Rancho Romero Education Fund is committed to funding music, art, reading, math, lunchtime sports, and classroom aides. These programs are NOT funded by our district.

We are also very excited to announce that beginning this Fall, RREF is sponsoring an After School Enrichment Program, offering after-school classes for all students (TK-5th grade) covering sports, language, math, sewing, and more! Enrollment will begin in mid-August.

Without the additional funding from our families, we wouldn’t be able to offer these programs to our children and further enrich their education. 
RREF has committed to spending $1,500+ per Rancho student this school year.
