Fundraising

As our name implies, the Magnet Fund coordinates fundraising activities throughout the year to support our school, faculty, staff, and, most importantly, the students. The premier event of the year is the Monster Dash 5K and Fun Run. We also put on an annual Holiday Poinsettia Sale, a spring fundraiser and other events. We welcome donations from our local business community, and parents and families all year long.

Social Events

RMSST provides numerous social events throughout the school year which are sponsored wholly or in part by the Magnet Fund. The annual Fall Ball is an event that our students look forward to during the Fall semester for fun and camaraderie. In the spring, we sponsor our Spring Family Picnic and Annual Awards Banquet to celebrate our achievements throughout the year.

In-School Events

The Magnet Fund supports in-school FLEX monthly events which are coordinated by the students such as Tailgate, Red Ribbon Week, Black History Month, and many other activities.

Advanced Placement/College Entrance Exams

The Magnet Fund covers the costs for one Advanced Placement exam for ALL students who take 4 or more during the school year. Additionally, the Fund supports costs for the PSAT college entrance exams.

Non-School-Budgeted Capital Expenses

 

The Magnet Fund covers the costs for capital expenses which are not funded by the school’s normal budget. In 2019-2020, the Fund purchased a greenhouse to support the Science/Horticulture curriculum and new Health-conscious furnishings for the Learning Commons.
