We Need Your Help! Please Join Your PTA HERE

The Ross PTA must raise more than $155,000 annually to provide the support that Principal Searl and the Ross Staff depend upon. Among many other things, the PTA pays for:

  • All office and classroom supplies for the school so that Principal Searl may hire additional staff
    not budgeted for by DCPS, including additional aides and full-time art, Spanish and PE teachers, a full-time STEM coordinator, a full-time librarian and a half-time music teacher.
  • Teacher trainings on the latest in literacy, STEM education, and brain-based research
  • Classroom technology to supplement and tailor the DCPS curriculum to your child’s needs
  • School-wide events to help foster greater community among the Ross students and families
  • Need-based, confidential community support to help effected families during the pandemic.
