Why Support the PTA 

The PTA helps to fund many vital expenses for Ross, enabling Principal Searl to dedicate a greater portion of the school’s DCPS budget to staffing classrooms.

Your monetary donations to the PTA are invested in supplies and activities that directly benefit Ross students and teachers.  Learn more here.


 Join a Ross PTA Committee!  

Volunteering your time and/or talents is a great way to get to know Ross, to meet other Ross families, and to support your child’s education.  Please review the opportunities below and indicate your interest via this form.  Someone from the respective committee will be in touch to get you started. Thank you!  

Ross PTA Committee Sign-Up Form

  • Holiday Sale: The Ross Annual Holiday Tree Sale has become a favorite community event that also raises important funds for our students.  The committee works on selling trees and wreaths, along with hosting a bake sale and community service project.  The committee is most active November and December. Chairs: Kate Gardner & Melissa Sabatier

  • Auction Committee: This Ross Annual Auction Fundraiser is the school’s largest fundraiser of the year. Not only does it raise needed funds to support important programs that benefit all Ross students, it is a fun, social gathering for parents, teachers, administrators and school supporters to help strengthen our Ross community. Committee is most active February through May, but the committee chair or co-chairs can help set the schedule. 

  • Teacher Appreciation Committee: Each year in May, the Ross community comes together to show our deep appreciation for the fantastic teachers and staff that make our school great! Join this committee to help plan this school wide effort. We are still looking for a chair or co-chairs. The committee is most active in  April and May.

  • Library Committee: The committee will help Ms. Juriga keep books organized in the new, fantastic Ross Library, as well as plan and implement its main annual fundraiser, the Mother’s & Father’s Day Book Drive. The committee is active all year.
