Rutherford PAC "Paint Night" fund-raiser
Thursday Feb 2nd 7-9PM
The Rutherford PAC is hosting a "Paint Night" fund-raiser in the Rutherford​ Elementary Gymnasium. This is a great opportunity to let your inner-artist come out and to express yourself with paint. A talented artist will lead you step-by-step and ensure that your painting is something that you will be proud to display. The painting project will be "Teal Tree in Moonlight" (as seen above) and all the paints and materials are supplied so all you need to bring is you sense of adventure! Tickets can be purchased online (click HERE for the link). Please join our PAC for this fun event and help the PAC raise money for their projects that support the school and students.

 ERASE Bullying

 
Bullying isn’t just a child’s issue; it’s a school and community issue, and must be addressed with a school and community solution.

Everyone should be safe from bullying. Don't let them control you and keep you down. Help ERASE bullying starting now. ERASE is a private and anonymous online reporting tool for targets of bullying or those that witness it taking place. Some secrets aren't worth keeping. For more information or to report an incident click the icon above.​
