Friends of Ravenswood School (FORS*) values your support of our school, students, parents and community. We are excited to join in on Giving Tuesday, this November 28th, to highlight the projects we want to offer our students that will energize their learning and bring excitement to our school. We hope we can count on you to find a project or need that you can support. See below for our highlighted projects.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation on Giving Tuesday, which is a global day dedicated to giving that has inspired giving around the world. No matter how small, every little bit helps!
We’re boiling in the summer and freezing in the winter…
…help us get GIANT fans for our unairconditioned, poorly heated gym! Lovingly titled the “caf-a-gym-a-torium,” the gym in our 125-year-old, fine-arts-focused school, also acts as an auditorium, housing all of our student performances, as well as the cafeteria. The temperature problem in this multi-use space affects each of our 500 plus students every school day, all year long. These silent-motor fans would be more affordable than air conditioning the large space and will also help heat the room in the winter. Make a difference in our students’ daily lives by helping fund this initiative.
Rethink your drink, Ravenswood!
Help provide students and staff easy access to clean, healthy, drinking water. FORS would like to purchase and install four (4) water bottle filling stations throughout Ravenswood Elementary School. The entire student population as well as faculty and staff would directly benefit from this purchase with your help.
