PTA and Greenback Donation Information

Great News for Rudder parents!  Rudder PTA does not ask you to participate in a sales drive.  Instead, we ask each family to make a "Greenback" donation to the PTA.  The funds collected will be used for Rudder campus  improvements.  A minimum donation of $5.00 per student earns the student an opportunity to participate in 2 dress-down days per semester on designated dates.

Students may also earn a dress down day by working a PTA event or related activity.  If you are interested in an alternative pathway please write a written request to PTA at

A wrist band will be issued and allow your student to come to school in a sprit shirt, jeans, and tennis shoes on September 23rd as long as they wear the provided wrist band.

Remember September 23, 2013 will be the first student "Dress Down Day" for PTA Greenback donation.


Also there is still time to join the Rudder Middle School PTA. 

If you joined the PTA for only $7.00 per year per person, you will receive the following benefits:

  1. Your student(s) will receive two free family passes to any extracurricular events on the Rudder campus during the 2013-2014 school year.
  2. Membership in the largest child advocacy organization in The United States.
  3. Discounts at merchants like: T-Mobile, Fiesta Texas, La Quinta, Sea World, Schlitterbahn, Dell Computer, Enterprises, and more.
