Hero Awards

HERO: Honor Exceptional Ridgefield Outstanding Educators

Teachers, specials teachers, security guards, principals, custodians and more….

These are the people who are making a difference in your child’s life every day. Show them what they mean to your child by purchasing a Hero Award any time during the school year.

REF feels that it is important to recognize our teachers and educators for what they do. So purchasing a Hero Award not only supports REF, allowing us to continue to donate to the district through project and professional development grants, but it also results in a certificate being personally presented to the teacher. The certificate is personalized with the name and message from the purchaser and is used to recognize the teacher for what he or she has done. These certificates are presented either by a member of the REF Board or the school principal.


    1. Choose the school where your Hero Works.
    2. Pick hero name from the dropdown menu
    3. Type how you would like “from” reflected on the certificate (maximum of 30 characters) (e.g. “John and Mary Smith”, “The Smith Family”, “John, Mary, Julie, & Ray Smith”)
