Dear Ross Families:

This is our last week of school; we hope that you have had a great year!  We would like to extend a THANK YOU to all of our parent volunteers for being so generous with your time and resources this year.  From helping in the classroom, volunteering at our numerous PTA events, and chaperoning field trips, you have helped to make Ross the incredible school that it is.  We are looking forward to another fantastic 2019-2020 school year!

2019-2020 School Supplies
Please do not forget to purchase school supplies for next school year.  The Ross PTA is once again collecting $100 per student for school supplies, all of which goes directly to teachers to allow them to purchase the items they need for their classrooms.  This allows the teachers to get exactly what they require and saves parents that pesky Summer trip to Target to gather specific notebooks and folders.
You can pay your school supply fees online here, as well as at drop-off and pick-up this week.
