Rippowam PTO Announcment


The Rippowam PTO, administration, and teachers are excited to announce the second annual all school RaptorDash FUNdraiser! It will take place onWednesday, June 1, during the school day (rain date will be Thursday, June 2). In short, RaptorDash is an obstacle style event that will take place in the gymnasium and outdoors on various school fields. The day will be filled with team-based competitions that include complex puzzles, brain teasers and physical challenges.

For the event to be successful, we will need parent volunteers. This will be a great opportunity to help our children, volunteer alongside teachers and administrators, while coming together as a community to cheer on our children. We promise an incredible day of FUN and FUNdraising! If you can volunteer your time, please visit our Rippowam Middle School, PTO volunteer spot link: Please hurry, time slots are filling up quickly!

Our school wide goal is to raise $20,000. Funds raised will go towards sponsoring programs that directly benefit our students’ daily experiences (in class resources, after school activities and a culminating 8th grade trip to DC).

The first 300 students to submit $25 or more in donations will get a Raptordash tshirt and a chance to ambush a participating administrator or teacher with silly string! Every additional $25 donated earns another silly string chance. And there are more prizes — see attachment for info., deadlines, and rules.

If you have any questions regarding this event please contact Doris Frattaroli, Judy Klym at, or Christine or the Rippowam main office at 203-977-4410.
Thank you from the Rippowam PTO for your continued support!
