2nd Annual Fall Giving Campaign

For 2021-22, we're asking all families and friends of JRMS to consider making a contribution help us complete the construction of "Project COOL". 

What is Project COOL? Our vision is to build an outdoor learning space that includes an amphitheater with seating for 50 students and a small pavilion (similar to the photo). The idea is to Create an Oasis for Outdoor Learning (hence the name, "Project COOL").


When completed, the learning center will...

  • Create an outdoor classroom that blends with the natural environment;

  • Provide students in grades 5-8 with an opportunity to “get closer” to nature, and be inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds us in Redding;

  • Promote greater understanding of and appreciation for the environment and local wildlife.

In addition to regular classroom instruction, the learning center can be used for student concerts, poetry readings, dramatic plays, and special events.

Our goal is to raise $50,000 and we're making great progress! As you can see in

the chart, we've already raised more than 60% of the funds required but we need

your help to reach the finish line. Every donation helps, no matter how small!

Your tax-deductible donation can make it possible for us to complete the project

this year which will benefit all students at JRMS for many years to come.

Please click this button to donate via PayPal today.


If you prefer to donate by check, please make it payable to “JRMS PTA” (please note "Fall Giving Campaign" and your child's name in the memo line).  Download the donation form. Mail the form with your check to:
