Parent Organizations Overview
Athletic Association - RAA
The Athletic Association is the school’s only athletic booster club and provides support for all sports programs. The RAA’s primary purpose is to raise money for athletic programs at Riverwood – the school receives no funding for athletics from the Fulton County Board of Education. Support Raider athletics in several different ways by joining the RAA, purchasing an ad in the athletic sports program, volunteering in the concession stand, purchasing spirit items and by attending a sporting event. www.RiverwoodAthletics.org
Band & Orchestra Boosters - BOB
The Band & Orchestra Boosters support and encourage the development of the school's music program through service, advocacy and financial support.
The Riverwood Foundation is committed to the academic enrichment of the entire school community. Its focus is to enhance technology and innovation at Riverwood by: 1) supporting curriculum programs; 2) strengthening the school’s culture; and 3) impacting students’ global experience. As a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, the Foundation develops partnerships in the business, international, civic and educational communities, providing funds and resources for school initiatives and programs. Additionally, the Foundation raises money through individual donors, alumni, annual giving campaigns, and corporate and foundation grants. www.RiverwoodFoundation.org
Parent Teacher Student Association - PTSA
One of the things that makes Riverwood such a special place for both students and families is the involvement and support of its parents. Parents providing talents and assistance are important to the success of the school. From teacher hospitality to mini-grants, the PTSA offers a variety of volunteer opportunities. Under the Riverwood Charter, PTSA membership is required of all families.
Performing Arts Booster Association - PABA
The Performing Arts Booster Association is a group of parents, teachers, friends and students working together to support the chorus and drama performing arts at Riverwood. PABA supplements funds for needs in the music and drama departments that are not covered by the Fulton County Board of Education such as music, scripts, sets, costumes, lights, sound, and other important items. PABA also funds guest instructors, judges, and costs associated with competitions, special concerts and events.
The role of the Bilingual Community Liaison is to help with communication between parents, students, and school staff (e-mails/phone calls/translating); to enhance parental involvement; to coordinate parental education programs; and to provide community school information and resources to school staff, students and their families.
