Events & Activities

The PTO holds many social and fundraising events throughout the year to build community and raise money to fund various school activities. 


Please consider volunteering for these events to help us make it a success!  Login in to today to sign up for available opportunities!

The Gala

Held semi-annually, the gala is our biggest fundraising event and includes hors d'oeuvres, drinks and music, plus raffles and a silent auction. We need people to help organize raffle baskets, solicit silent-auction donations, plan the event and more!

Book Fairs

Scholastic book fairs are held twice a year, in October and April. Students visit the fair with their classes and select books for their wish lists. Funds are collected for "All for Books," which provides books to students who otherwise couldn't afford them. The book fair also provides "wish boxes" for teachers to select books; families can purchase these books to contribute to classroom libraries. 

Pasta & bingo night

Come and enjoy a delicious pasta dinner followed by a fun game of BINGO led by teachers. Usually takes place in the winter

“Who We Are Community Pot Luck”

A potluck gathering held in the winter that gives families a chance to share their heritages and get to know each other better.

Play dates

Play dates are organized for coming in Kindergarten families and new families. This is an opportunity to meet other families with children entering Rogers International School in the fall. These play dates are normally held in summer in the months of June, July, August and September.

Early-Release Movies

On early-release days (the last Wednesday of the month), the PTO shows an after-school movie for lower-school students. Upper-school students are encouraged to volunteer.

Back-Yard Movie Night

A family-friendly movie is held in the fall on the field behind the school as weather permits.  Bring your beach chairs, sit back and enjoy the show!

Typically a food truck or other fundraiser event would be running concurrently.

Ice Cream Socials

Held during each book fair on Family night. “Surprise Guest Scoopers” serve up ice cream with fun toppings for only $2.  This is not a fundraising event, it’s purely an opportunity to build community and meet other families.

Monster Mash

Fifth- and sixth-grade costume party held in late October after school in the gym. Adult volunteers are needed for decorating and chaperoning.


We publish two yearbooks, one for the upper school and one for the lower. Ordering information is sent home in April and the yearbooks are delivered by mid-June.  


Families are encouraged to take pictures of class and school activities throughout the school year and send them to


Parent volunteers are also needed to create pages and deliver the yearbooks.
