Annual Fund Giving Campaign

The Annual Giving Campaign will bridge the gap between the basic, minimum funding provided by LAUSD and the essential 21st century academic programs and arts instruction that help promote a successful learning environment at Rockdale. Simply put, public funding alone does not provide for enrichment programs, nor does it guarantee academic excellence for our children. That’s why we need the Annual Giving Campaign.

Help us raise funds for our public school by donating to the Annual Giving Campaign. You can contribute your donation all at once or via a monthly contribution. The donation is 100% tax deductible. We offer different levels of donations. Please give generously. Every single dollar counts!

About Rockdale's PTA

The Rockdale Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) was established in 1913 and continues to support the school through advocacy and fundraising. You can make a difference by getting involved.  You do NOT need to attend meetings to be a part of the PTA. Volunteering and donations of any kind go a long way! 

For more information contact email us at


Fundraising for the Arts

Although LAUSD is recognizing Rockdale’s exceptional art programming with our fairly new Magnet status, our arts curriculum is still not fully funded by the school district. Most of the wonderful arts curriculum at Rockdale – including part of theater and dance– is funded by the PTA.  

Some of the programs we help fund are:

  • LA Opera performances at the school
  • FocusFish dance and movement
  • School Garden Foundation

Please join us for our PTA monthly meetings every 3rd Wednesday, 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. in the teacher's lounge.
