We love our HOLIDAY TREE SALE and we love that so many are buying the trees from our fundraiser. And a big part of it is to UNLOAD them from the truck when the trees get to our school on 11/27 (TOMORROW). Who is up for it? No gym needed that day, promise!!!

But the trees won't deliver themselves, so we need some HELPING HANDS and some HELPING PICK UP TRUCKS!!! You will get all the instructions for driving and a personal assistant for directions! How fun!!!

 

Please sign up to help! If you have any questions, just let us know. Thanks for signing up!

As you've likely heard, the RHS Auction was a HUGE success by any measurement! And yet despite its resounding success there are still financial gaps to close. Each year, we normally set aside time during the auction for parents to stand up and support our school by pledging $1,000, $500, $250 even $100 to FUND-A-NEED at the school. While we didn't make that request at the event we are asking now. 

Art is one of the programs that has a significant impact on our children's growth. And it needs your help. Were you planning to stand up for the Arts during the Fund-A-Need part of the auction? Did you walk away from the evening with more money in your pocket than you'd planned? Did you MISS the auction and want to be part of the biggest school fundraiser of the year? If so, you can donate now and stand up virtually for our amazing RHS Arts Program and help us fund-this-important need. Thank you for your consideration and your support!

Are you finding yourself a bit stressed out around this time of year? Then, I would recommend seeking some laughter. And what better way than a "one woman" show:

The Show

After her kids dodge bullets at the local park, Lisa takes them to a Winter Solstice Carnival in the ritzy town where she grew up. Now she’s the one dodging a gang of PTA moms in Lululemon, a fire-breathing dragon and, worst of all, her father. Of course, no fairytale would be complete without a fairy godmother to help her sort through her parenting choices.  See Lisa’s unmatched storytelling skills in action in this heartfelt farce.

 

November 29: Yoga Pants Night
Wear yoga pants and receive a discount to a future show at The Marsh
Special Drink: The Mom’s Night Out

Other themed nights available...

The Performer

Lisa’s last show Date Night at Pet Emergency was extended three times at theaters in Berkeley and San Francisco and was well received by the Examiner and the Bay Area Reporter. Lisa lives in Oakland with her husband Kevin and their two sons - Murray who attends Redwood Heights (where Lisa coordinates after school enrichment for the PTA) and Ezra who attends Bret Harte where he’s learning to play lacrosse and the bass clarinet.
