Rincon University’s current scoreboard on the football field is over 30 years old! We have a unique opportunity NOW to finally update it!
Rincon University’s current scoreboard on the football field is over 30 years old and we can no longer get bulbs or other parts for it. Now is an ideal time to replace the scoreboard because the track that goes around the football field is being replaced by TUSD. As part of that, they are moving the location of the scoreboard to the west side of the field, along Swan, at their expense. We just need to provide the scoreboard for them to install–or else they will use the OLD one! Yikes!
The cost of the scoreboard is $30,213. The scoreboard has been ordered and $15,000 has been raised thus far. We need the balance when it is delivered. Please consider donating to the much needed upgrade! You can donate online via the PayPal button below, or mail a check/money order to Rincon PTA.

Everyone—parents, educators, students and other citizens active in their schools and communities—is invited to join our not-for-profit parent association.
What will I (and my student) get out of joining the PTA?
GET CONNECTED: There’s no better way to know what’s happening in your school and to have direct access to administration.
BE HEARD: Share ideas, concerns, and experiences. Student members will get a say on what the group does and can offer the student perspective. If an issue/problem needs attention from the state or national government, any local, district, or state PTA can bring the issue to the attention of the National PTA.
LEARN: Education about school policies, state funding, and other issues concerning Vail and TUSD
DISCOVER GREAT RESOURCES: The PTA offers a variety of programs designed for parents as well as students.
TAP INTO A NETWORK: PTA functions are opportunities to meet other parents and teachers, building rapport and discussing issues that are on your mind.
WATCH YOURSELF GROW: By volunteering with your PTSA, you put your skills and hobbies to use for a noble cause—your child and all children in the community.
SPEAK UP: PTA can be a way for you to more effectively suggest change at your child’s school.
WITNESS IMPROVEMENT: By getting involved at your child’s school you’ll be part of the solution, helping make positive changes. Local PTAs play an important role in fundraising to provide building improvements, curriculum-based programs, and social events.
BE A ROLE MODEL: By becoming a PTA member, you’ll be demonstrating to your child the importance you place on them and their education. Studies have shown that students with parents involved in their education get better grades, have less discipline issues, and feel more engaged in their education.
ENJOY BENEFITS. Membership in a local unit makes you part of National PTA. Individuals and local units can take advantage of a host of benefits from PTA membership including discounts and offers from benefit providers and sponsors, leadership training, e-newsletters and much more. To see a full list of benefit providers, click here to go to the national PTA website.
As a PTA member what would I be expected to do?
Your level of involvement is up to you, but here are some of the main things the PTSA hope you will consider:
Give your input: Your voice is important to help shape the goals and actions of our PTSA. Feel free to address any concerns you have at meetings.
Events and fundraisers: the PTA will assist the school with its community events and may also have community info or spirit events of its own. We may conduct fundraisers throughout the year for projects and improvements at the school and for things like for art supplies, scholarships, teacher grants, computers, field trips, etc. Your donation of time, talent, or money will be welcome to make our goals successful.
Commitment: You’ll get the most out of your PTA membership by staying involved. Meetings are scheduled for once-a-month in the evenings and we plan to meet in person in the school library and via Zoom. If you can’t make the meetings, see about getting minutes and try to make it to fundraisers and other PTA events. Subscribe to our newsletter to get info, too.
Dues are $10.00. (Membership period runs July 1-June 30 each school year.)
Why do I have to pay to be a member of the PTA?

Hello Ranger Students, Parents, and Guardians, Welcome to a new year at Rincon High School! I look forward to finally having our students back on campus for inperson learning. Over the last year and a half, we have learned a lot about how technology can serve as a powerful tool for learning, which is why it is exciting to announce that even as we return to in-person learning, we will continue the practice of issuing all students a laptop. Teachers will continue using digital platforms to post assignments, collect assessment data, provide feedback and communicate with students and parents. Students will learn strategies to stay organized in the digital world we live in, while developing valuable 21st century skills that will be an asset in their lives beyond high school. This year we will also be placing emphasis on after school opportunities for students to reconnect with the school environment by proving expanded club offerings and individualized academic opportunities. It is very important to us that our students get the help they need while reestablishing positive social relationships tied to Rincon. We strongly encourage all students to get involved in activities that extend beyond the traditional school day.

As a State Congress of the National PTA, Arizona PTA does not act alone. Working collaboratively with many national education, health, safety, and child advocacy groups and federal agencies, the PTA collaborates on projects that benefit children and that bring valuable resources to its members.

The PTA strives to support the students, parents and education at Rincon High School by promoting a sense of community through fundraisers, events and give-back programs. All of these activities add in a positive way to the Rincon experience for all of us. The PTA plans, organizes, staffs and operate dozens of activities each year. It takes the continued commitment of a lot of people to make all of the activities a reality. Please consider volunteering to help with one or two of the activities listed below. By volunteering you will be helping the PTA, the school, your child and yourself.
None of the activities listed below gets done without PTA volunteers like you. Each activity requires a team effort for success.

THANK YOU ARIZONA CARDINALS & WALMART
The actual re-crowing of the field will begin on June 14 and construction is expected to last for two weeks, the field will then need some time to set prior to the Ribbon Cutting which will take place at our first home game on Aug. 18th vs. Pueblo High School at 7pm.
Rincon University High School Campus in Tucson has been given a grant to make needed updates and changes to the football field. It will replace the grass on the field and make it into a beautiful field to be used for football, soccer, track and cross country. This grant is $100,000. Rincon PTA is raising funds to buy a reel mower to be used just on the field so cross contamination of weeds will not happen. The mower needs to be a reel mower to mow the Tif grass properly. Groundbreaking ceremony is June 7 so time is of the essence.
You can help RINCON HIGH SCHOOL students get the most out of school years by making contributions through Arizona’s tax-credit programs. Contributing is easy, and the impact is immense.
Your tax credit contribution gives kids an extra chance to stay in school, learn more and do better in their classes. Kids who play sports in school are more likely to stay in school and succeed academically. Kids who participate in fine arts–in programs in art and music–actually do better in basic academic subjects, including math! It’s also true that kids can learn a lot on extracurricular field trips.
Here’s how the credits work:
For the public schools credit, you choose to pay some of the state income tax you owe directly to a TUSD school. Married couples filing jointly can contribute up to $400, and individuals can contribute up to $200.
To further help children of TUSD, you can direct a portion of your state income to theCharitable Tax Credit through a contribution to the Education Enrichment Foundation, which helps Tucson children succeed in school. The contribution maximums are the same, and you don’t have to choose between the two. As long as you have enough tax liability, you can contribute to both.
Many parents are eager to volunteer at their child’s school during the early education years, but the rate of parental involvement usually decreases as students enter into middle and high school. However, volunteering in the school doesn’t have to end once your child reaches a certain age. Research shows that parental involvement through the years leads to higher academic performance, improved school attendance, better homework skills, and an increased likelihood of graduation. Check out these areas where you could volunteer at your child’s high school.
Most high schools offer the opportunity for students to participate in athletics year-round. Parents are often needed in volunteer roles such as:
Working the concession stand
Campus Grounds Keeping
Depending on where your child goes to school, you may be able to volunteer with campus grounds keeping. Volunteer duties may include:
Picking up litter
Teachers always have a lot of tasks to complete, and many would welcome any kind of help you could give. Classroom volunteer duties could include:
There are many clubs, organizations, and activities in high school that involve fundraising. As a parent volunteer, you could:
Produce and distribute flyers
Make phone calls
During the school day, there are many school offices that need assistance with everyday or special event tasks. Parent volunteers are often needed to:
Assist with mailings
Volunteers are always needed to support school clubs and activities such as the yearbook committee, drama club, prom/school dances, etc. Activities might include:
Chaperoning field trips
Assisting with recitals/theater productions
Organizing school socials
These are just a few ways to become more involved at your child’s high school. For more information about school volunteering and to find out in which areas your help may be needed, contact the school’s main office or counseling center.
