The Rice Elementary School PTA helps to support a variety of functions and activities throughout the school year and serves in an advisory capacity on issues related to Rice Elementary School and/or the District. The mission of our PTA is to not only provide fun activities and parties, but to also secure for all children the highest advantages in physical, mental, and social education.

Last year we were able to provide many new OUTDOOR ACTIVITY GAMES and BUDDY BENCHES to promote physical and emotional health during recess. This year we are adding another educational STEM + Families Science and Technology Night! The PTA sponsors many special fun events for Rice Elementary students and their families each year. These include The Annual Halloween Party, Spring Picnic, Rice Loves Its Kids Month Activities, and more! In addition, the PTA assists students in fundraising to provide support for many individual programs at Rice Elementary School including student field trips, The Grandparent Program and Deep Portage.
If you are interested in being involved in your child’s school, please consider joining the Rice PTA. No time commitment or volunteer time is required, and you gain a lot of insight into the school by attending monthly meetings. All parents, family members and community members are welcome to attend any of the meetings.
