Riverside Presbyterian Day School

Riverside Parents Association

Great schools provide numerous opportunities for parents to positively participate in the life of the school.

At RPDS, parent volunteers of the Riverside Parents Association (RPA) give generously of their time and talents through participation in a multitude of committees and service choices. The success of the many RPA-driven activities and fundraisers depend on the volunteer support we receive throughout year. We are so grateful to all our volunteers for their leadership and their participation makes such a tremendous difference in the lives of our students and the entire Riverside community.

Every parent at RPDS is a member of the Riverside Parents Association (RPA). Whether you serve as a homeroom parent, sit with your student during Chapel, serve on a committee or join your child or grandchild for lunch, the opportunities to engage are abundant. There are a variety of volunteer roles available for all interests, skill sets and levels of availability, so we encourage you to sign up!
