Dear Ross Families,

Thank you to the over 100 families who have joined the PTA to date.  Your membership dues have already supported curriculum materials, new technology, and professional development.  Please help your child’s class win school spirit bragging rights as well as an extra free dress day or recess!    

Make your tax-deductible donation to benefit Ross through our Square store or you may write a check to The Ross PTA or cash.  The PTA will have coffee at drop-off this Friday, September 27 where you can join in person and pick up merchandise.

PTA Coffee Friday Morning!

Join your fellow Ross families for our 8thannual Walk to School Day.  It’s a fun opportunity to rally with your children’s classmates and families and walk to school together as a group!
We’ll be meeting at the northeast corner of 15 and R Streets, in front of the 15 Street Presbyterian Church at 7:45am and will leave by 8:00 am to walk across R Street to Ross.
We’ll have McGruff the crime dog and a police horse helping escort our kids to school, where weather permitting, we’ll have school breakfast, some healthy snacks and coffee for the parents waiting for us on the playground.
Kids are encouraged to wear their Ross t-shirts and to bring signs or banners with a school or pedestrian safety message.  Bikes, scooters, and strollers all welcome!
Note to ALL Drivers: On Oct. 2nd, if you must drive (but we hope you won’t!) please make arrangements to park away from the school to help us ensure our students’ safety as they walk to school.
