Papillion-La Vista School District

Welcome to the Rumsey Station Elementary Website!

Great learning opportunities are happening at our school every day!
Box Tops

    Welcome back to another year of supporting Rumsey Station through the Box Tops for Education Program! Box Tops for Education is a free and easy way to fundraise for Rumsey Station all year long. Last year we raised over $4,000 for our school. It was our best year ever! For those of you not familiar with the Box Top Program, General Mills pay us 10¢  for each of the pink coupons that are on boxes, packages, and lids of various products. The products are from General Mills, Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, Bisquick, Old El Paso, Yoplait, Totinos, Ziploc, and others. Just follow these easy steps:

    Look for the pink Box Top coupon on hundreds of participating products. Each is worth 10¢ for Rumsey Station.

    (1) Buy your favorite Box Tops products.

    (2) Cut out the Box Top from each package.

    (3) Send your Box Tops to school with your child.

    (4) Rumsey Station gets cash for every Box Top collected to help buy the things we need most. All those Box Tops really add up!


Go online to for a complete list of participating box tops products.

    Box Tops are picked up approximately once per month, usually at the end of the month. Our first pick-will be sometime in September. For each collection, we have a friendly competition among the classrooms. After the box tops are tallied for the month, each student in the classroom with the most box tops gets a small prize and the teacher get a $20 gift card to a store of his or her choice. Also, if an individual student brings in at least 50 box tops (in a baggie or envelope with his or her name on it), that student also gets a small prize. If you have any questions, please contact Karen Caverzagie at


Rumsey Station Purpose & Direction

Purpose: Our purpose is to prepare every student with the essential skills and strategies necessary for a successful transition to the next phase of his or her life.

Direction: Our direction is to prepare every student for success through quality programs delivered by dedicated and caring educators in a safe and supportive environment in collaboration with family and community members.

We Value…

o Teamwork & Communication

o Safe & Caring Environment

o Continuous Improvement & Student Success

o Respect & Diversity



Communication Process:

* On the Rumsey website

* In the building in strategic places such as by front door, main hall, etc.

* On the website as a “looping” picture/slideshow

* On the TV by office. Maybe have kids holding signs that say each part. Have it run as a continuous loop on TV on special occasions. i.e. Open house, curriculum night, conferences, etc.


Review Process:

* Annually at a quick staff meeting, perhaps in January when it’s not a real busy/stressful time.


Music Clubs Update!
Music Club information papers went out to students on Friday, September 5. If your child did not receive a paper, but would like to join us, just have them swing by the music room for a copy. Due to my stepping in for the Fuel Up to Play 60 conference in KC, I need to change the choir's starting date to Tuesday, October 7. Please do so on your form. Also, don't forget to cut off the bottom portion to return to school once your child has decided to commit to the spring concert and keep the top portion as a reference at home. If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Nelson at Thank you!
