  • About FORS, Inc.

    Friends of Ripton School, Inc. (FORS) is a non-profit organization comprised of a board of directors and volunteer members who work together to support the Ripton Elementary School community in making our school the best it can be.  Funds generated by FORS are used to support and broaden Ripton Elementary’s academic programs through extra curricular activities and events.

     We organize fundraising projects throughout the year, as well as specific school and community related events. The group meets regularly during the school year to plan upcoming events and approve funding requests. We are also a forum for discussion on a variety of school and community related issues. Typically, our members are parents of students at Ripton Elementary. However, we invite any interested community member to join us. Some examples of community involvement in the school include: helping to supervise recess; driving for field trips; helping with special events; fundraising activities such as pizza bakes and more.  

     We know that Ripton is rich with diversely talented community members who might be interested in spending time at the school.  We welcome your interest and involvement!
