FRIENDS OF RIDGE
As parents, we have the unique opportunity to directly impact the programs that will enhance our children's learning experiences by contributing to Friends of Ridge (FOR). Unlike the HSA operating budget which covers things such as upgrades to facilities and technology, Friends of Ridge donations are used solely to sponsor enrichment programs that are not paid for by the Board of Education. These additional programs make our children's experience at Ridge Elementary School not just memorable but truly extraordinary.
The Ridge School HSA is a non-profit organization comprised of parents/guardians of students, faculty and administration of Ridge School.
We support enriching experiences for our children and provide interesting and important information to parents/guardians throughout the year.
This website contains important information for parents of Ridge School students including how you can help make Ridge school better. Please refer to it throughout the year.
