If you haven’t heard, Ripon Christian School Circle will be a little different this year. We will only be having four meetings throughout the year along with our fall brunch in October and our appreciation brunch in March! We are excited for the change, and we hope you join us to learn more about RC School Circle.
Our meetings take place at Almond Valley Christian Reformed Church on Wilma Ave. at 8:30am. If you are not familiar with School Circle it is similar to a Parent’s Club. The meetings are a time to meet and discuss various fundraisers, allocations of funds, opportunities of service and fellowship. Coffee and refreshments are served, and nursery is provided at each meeting and brunch. There is also an opportunity to win a drawing for $35.00 in T.R.I.P.

Projects and Events
If you are interested in helping in any of these events, please fill out the volunteer card that will be sent home with your child on the first day of school (K-5) or fill out the form that was emailed and return it to the School Circle table at Knight’s Kick Off (MS & HS).
Fall Brunch Our Brunch this year will be on October 7. This year it will be a time of fellowship with no meeting. This will be a time to enjoy great food and an opportunity to get to know other parents and grandparents from RC.
Jog-A-Thon–Our Jog-A-Thon this year will be held on Friday, October 14. This is a great fundraiser that has raised money for many projects in the past including a new playground and a new science lab.
RC Knight Out: Dinner & Auction – Our biggest fundraiser of the year will be held on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at the Ripon Community Center. Pam Van Zwaluwenburg is the Auction Chairperson and is looking for more helpful hands to serve on the committee. Also, if you or someone you know would like to donate an item(s) for our live or silent auction, please contact Pam Van Zwaluwenburg at firstname.lastname@example.org or #599-2236 to receive an auction donation form and information. This event is a great fundraiser that has raised funds towards new buses, a new playground, a new science lab, ipads and much more. It also is a great time, I hope you can join us!
Family Fun Festival – Our fifth annual Family Fun Festival will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017. There will be food, fun games, bounce houses, a rock wall, a dunk tank and prizes! See you there!
Hot Lunch –We offer this service to our students every Wednesday. Profits are minimal as this is more of a labor of love. Hot Lunch order forms will be sent home with your child on the first day of school (K-5). Middle School and High School students will receive an email with the form. MS and HS students please turn in your form to the School Circle table at Knight’s Kick Off along with your volunteer form.
Used Polo Shirts – This fundraiser was formed to provide an option of exchanging previously worn polo uniform shirts between our RC families at a minimal cost. Funds raised benefit both family and school, as shirt expense is decreased and proceeds are put toward school needs. Sales are announced and held throughout the year. The first sale will be held at Knight’s Kick Off (August 15, 4:30-6:30) We would like to start collecting and selling the smaller polo sizes. If you have polos that your children have outgrown and that you would like to donate please drop them off at Knight’s Kick Off at the School Circle table or drop them off in the elementary or high school office.
Thank you for your tremendous, continued, faithful support. Our events are always successful because of YOU!
