About

The goal for #RiponRoar Days is to inspire at least 226 donors to give - that’s one gift in honor of every staff member in the Ripon Area School District.

#RiponRoar Days is a campaign to celebrate the Ripon Area School District (RASD) and donate to Ripon Education Foundation, Inc. The First Annual #RiponRoar Days runs Monday-Friday, November 16-20, 2020.

Money raised during #RiponRoar Days will directly benefit the Program Fund which supports RASD educators through grants to provide additional classroom supplies or experiences to students. The Program Fund also provides tutoring scholarships and other grants that expand student learning within RASD.

Ripon Education Foundation, Inc. is an independent, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation managed by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of community members. The Foundation funds grants and scholarships to benefit staff and students of the Ripon Area School District.

GAME CHANGERS

Elementary Students Receive Yoga Mats thanks to Ripon Education Foundation Grant

Let's get to 226 donors to support more teachers like Mr. Nehls!

The Ripon Education Foundation funded a grant request to supply enough yoga mats for each K-2 student. The 300 mats are being used in the classroom by Mr. Nehls during Phy. Ed. classes and by the classroom teachers during some of their in-class activities. They provide a great visual for our youngest students as they learn personal space and distancing. The mats are a great addition especially during this time of COVID. 

Your support this week will fund teacher requests that benefit RASD students. #RiponRoar #RiponRoarDay

Lifetime Love of Literature Grant Funded by Ripon Education Foundation


The Ripon Education Foundation funded a “Lifetime Love of Literature” grant for Mrs. Johnson’s and Ms. Geiger’s 3rd-grade classrooms during the 2019-2020 school year! This grant was used to update the classroom library with new book titles, as well as replacements of well-loved and worn-out copies of others. The students helped select the new titles and were so excited to get their hands on them. Their hands were so full; they couldn’t even hold them all!  Your support this week will fund teacher requests that benefit RASD students.  #RiponRoar #RiponRoarDays
