Ripon Christian School Circle

Welcome! We invite you to join us this year to learn more about RC School Circle and the many ways we support our wonderful school! RC School Circle is similar to a 'Parents' Club,' whose goal is to encourage our teachers and raise funds for items needed in our classrooms and on campus. 

Our meetings are held the first Friday of each month at Almond Valley CRC on Wilma Ave. Start time is 8:30 a.m. Each meeting will focus on a different aspect of student life at Ripon Christian. It is our desire for every RC family to feel welcome and included in all events held at the school. 

These meetings are primarily a time of fellowship with other parents and will include various speakers and demonstrations. Coffee and light refreshments are provided, as well as childcare.

Projects and Events

Here are a few of our events coming up this year--we hope you can join us! If you are interested in helping out with any of the following, please fill out the volunteer form your child brought home on the first day of school and return it to your child's teacher or the elementary office. 

BooHoo WooHoo Breakfast 

Our first meeting will celebrate the beginning of a new school year with a yogurt parfait breakfast while getting to know other RC parents.

Family Fun Festival  

Our Family Fun Festival will take place in the Fall. Last year our students enjoyed an afternoon of games, bounce houses, petting farm animals, pony rides and more! Stay tuned for updates on this year's event!

RC Knight Out: Dinner & Auction 

Our biggest fundraiser of the year is held the first Saturday of November at the Ripon Community Center. If you or someone you know would like to donate an item(s) for our live or silent auction, please contact us at for more information. We are also looking for volunteers to assist with setting up.

Christmas Bazaar  

Any RC parents/families who have a small business or make handmade items are invited to be vendors at our first RC holiday Bazaar on December 1! If you would like to participate, please email us at and let us know what you would like to make and/or sell. 


Our kiddos run laps with classmates while earning pledge donations for the school. Volunteers are needed to hand out water and popsicles.

Teacher Appreciation Week

We love to spoil our teachers by bringing them lunch and treats throughout the week. This is the perfect time for parents to send a note or gift to let their teachers know just how much they are appreciated!

Used Polo Sales

We will be selling used polo shirts at various times throughout the year. At only $5 per shirt, it's a great way to grab a few more for your kiddos or even stock up for next year. If you have any outgrown shirts you would like to donate, please bring them to the elementary office.


We hope you can join us for our upcoming meetings and events! We're looking forward to a great year at Ripon Christian!!
