Welcome to FRAUC—Families of Rindge Avenue Upper Campus in Cambridge, MA! We are a 501(c)3 organization made up of RAUC parent and caregiver volunteers. We are dedicated to the RAUC community. We support school staff, strengthen traditions, and build community at RAUC. FRAUC is an all-volunteer organization. All families and caregivers are welcome. Please join us!

Mission

Our mission is to support and enhance the educational experiences of RAUC students by providing an organization through which families, school and teachers can work cooperatively and by providing financial support for student programs funded outside the annual school budget.
All families and caregivers of RAUC students are welcome. You can help out a little or a lot, as your time allows.

What We Do

FRAUC supports the school in various ways as needs arise. Here are some ways we help out:

  • Provide grants for field trips, guest speakers, clubs, and special events
  • Author events, writing workshops, all-grade and school-wide field trips
  • Organize school dances

We sponsor school dances by helping develop a theme, running concessions, organizing music, and bring together “non-dance” activities such as crafts, games, and a photo booth, so all can participate. We also

  • Organize Staff Appreciation Day
  • Meals, cards, and love for RAUC’s hardworking staff
  • Pizza for student activities, snacks for students, meals and treats for staff appreciation day.
  • Purchase materials for curriculum and teacher support
  • Whiteboards for remote learning, books, poster boards for science fairs, etc.
  • Support community building
  • 8th grade graduation gowns and tassels
  • Raise money for scholarships and special events through bake sales and concessions, and our Amazon Smile account.
