Dear Ross Families:

Please join us this Wednesday to participate in National Walk to School Day!  We will meet at the northeast corner of 15th and R Streets, in front of the 15th Street Presbyterian Church at 7:45am and will leave by 8:00 am to walk across R Street to Ross.  Kids are encouraged to wear their Ross t-shirts and to bring signs or banners with a school or pedestrian safety message.  We will have a police horse helping to escort our kids, and McGruff the crime dog as well as another surprise waiting to greet everyone at the school.  We will have school breakfast for the kids and coffee for the parents while we celebrate our coveted National Blue Ribbon award, affirming the hard work of our educators, families, and communities in creating our welcoming school where students master challenging and engaging content.

Join the PTA!
Has your family paid dues for school year 2019-2020?  If not, please visit our Square store to join the 115 families who have already shown their commitment to our children’s education.  We hope that every Ross family joins the PTA and aim for 100% participation each year; you help improve your child’s school experience no matter how large or small your contribution.  We have suggested membership levels with Ross merchandise gifts as a special thank you for your support.  All donations are appreciated and can be paid either monthly or annually.  The Ross PTA is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your donation is fully tax-deductible.
