Citizens for Ridgefield Schools Fundraiser

This fundraiser allows Citizens for Ridgefield Schools to advocate on behalf of the Ridgefield School District. There will be another bond on the ballot this coming February 2020. An unsuccessful bond will result in the district having to make difficult and drastic decisions to accommodate our kids. Ridgefield School District is expected to grow by 1760 students over the next 5 years. The Ridgefield School District continues to strive to be a premier district, but we need your help to do that.

Please join us on Oct 12th. You can have a fun night out while showing your support for our schools!
