After School Activities Program

The After School Activities Program is the place to be!  Our program offers homework club, music, dancing, arts and crafts, indoor and outdoor games, cooking and an afternoon snack.  ASAP starts as soon as school gets out, including minimum days.  There is no program during non school days.  Children must be registered prior to attending.  Initial registration must take place at the Town Hall Recreation Center, after that you can make your payments by phone, walk in, or by mail.  Cost is only $36.00 per week, sorry no pro-ration or part time fee available.  All employees are First Aide and CPR certified and are trained in working with children.  After School Program is not a day care, but a recreational After School Program which means you do not have to attend weekly, only as you need us!  Call 760-240-7880 for more information.

This year Rio Vista will be fundraising through "Great American Fundraising Co" Your child was sent home with a catalogue to sell items from last week. There are lots of wonderful items available in the catalogue, as well as, magazine subscriptions and yummy cookie dough. We ask that you do not allow your child to go door to door. We appreciate any support you can offer with our fundraising program.
Rio Vista is also fundraising through a "Check Campaign" This campaign is for those of you that would like to support the school but choose not to sell items. Through participating in our check campaign the school receives 100% profit. Feel free to choose either fundraiser, we are just grateful for any support.
