Visual and Performing Arts

Welcome to the home of the Rio Linda High School Visual And Performing Arts department.

We are glad that you are here visiting. We are grateful that you are supporting your students(s) in the arts. We know students that take Art and Music are a better rounded person.

Click on a teacher's name to take you to that specific class/ensemble. Click on the little envelope to email one of the instructors.

We are always doing something with the students. Check back often and see what we are up to.


CSUS Jazz Festival

Please remember that all of the fundraising efforts that we try to work with throughout the year are about 50% to your students account and 50% to the company that we are working with for that fundraiser.

We work with Worlds Finest Chocolate and Popcornopolis. WFC is 50% and Popcornopolis is about 47% (we round up to help you help your student.). 

All of the fundraising money stays at the school. If you can not, for what ever reason, continue with the tour (no closer than a two months out from travel date) those funds will be transferred to a student that is in financial need (based on a need basis setup by the district). If you paid into the tour fund, those funds will be returned to you.


Thank you all
