The Round Valley STEP (Student Enrichment Program) Foundation is dedicated to improving education for the children of Round Valley Joint Elementary School through fundraising to enrich the educational process.  
The STEP Foundation was formed by a group of parents and teachers in 2006.  The Foundation continues operations today through parent and teacher involvment that lead to continued fundraising.  Currently, we organize three major fundraising events each year....our annual fundraising dinner in the spring/summer, our Yamatani Dinner fundraiser, and our family holiday film in the winter.  Please come out and support one of our events.  You will have a great time in the name of a great cause....our children.
