Run4Roseville 2013 set for April 21st at Maidu Park
Mark your calendars for Sunday, April 21, 2013, when RCSD Foundation's annual Run4Roseville 5K Run and Lil' Ones 100 Meter Dash will take place at Maidu Regional Park.
Different from a jog-a-thon that is focused on schools' students, this is a community event that welcomes participation from everyone in the region to show their support of education, from families to runners to neighbors on your street. Our 2012 event, held April 15, saw almost 1600 participants from the community, an all-time record. We partner with gyms and community groups, list the event on active.com, and encourage businesses and organizations to add to the festive atmosphere.

2012-13 Partners in Education Grants Awarded
With solid support from businesses and families, and a significant matching grant from the City of Roseville's Citizens Benefit Fund, the RCSD Foundation awarded 28 grants totalling $26,500 to 13 schools throughout the district. Applications were both project and technology based, with iPads in particular being used for curriculum enhancement, speech therapy, and special day classes. Grants are also being used to purchase a microscope, to supply a listening center, and to supplement band programs.
Outside Grant Opportunities for RCSDF
In October 2012, the RCSD Foundation Board convened a focus group of principals, teachers, and parents from various schools in the District who met with a grant consultant to assess district-wide needs so the Foundation can be an effective conduit between needs and grant-funded opportunities. From that research and subsequent discussion, the Board determined that the following two focus areas provide the best opportunities for obtaining grants as well as meeting goals throughout the district:
- Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM); particularly hands-on science
- Arts (performing arts, including band, dance, theater, and chorus; and visual arts)
The Roseville City School District Foundation is looking forward to advocating for our students and teachers, by seeking grant
