Dear San Rafael HS Community,
A big congratulations to everyone who supported and worked at the 2012 Christmas Tree Lot. With an extra week of selling due to an early Thanksgiving this year, the Tree Lot sold out by late afternoon on Sunday, Dec. 16th!
The tree lot is a 20+ year tradition at SRHS, and we are fortunate for all of the work in all of the previous years by parents, students and members of the community. We look forward to your energy and ideas as we continue to improve this great program! YOU help build and sustain the community that is San Rafael High School. Next year, we will be recruiting for parents to help make the 2013 Christmas Tree Lot even more successful!
CONGRATULATIONS to our Winter Raffle Winners:

Check back here soon for an update on this year's final tally.
Thank you for all you do!
What Happens with the Funds Raised
2012 PROFITS = $53,285
Funds raised through the sale of trees, wreaths, and garland are divided between the classes, booster groups, and student clubs who volunteer at the lot.
The Classes (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior) use the funds to offset the cost of prom and Safe 'n Sober Grad Night, making these events affordable for all students in the class. Students participating in the music and drama programs have their hours credited toward music and drama trips; art boosters augments the art program; the various clubs and groups use the money to help with projects they are working on.
The San Rafael High School community greatly appreciates the support of Marin County residents in purchasing their holiday trees and greenery at the high school.
New in 2012 - funds also contributed to an extra storage container, upgraded our cabinets and switched to the iPad point-of-sale system. These improvements impacted our bottom line, but they are postive changes for coming years.
