Engage. Empower. Educate. Every Day.
August 12, 2022
Welcome to Ross Elementary! Each week, I'll send a newsletter to families so you'll know what's going on.
Right now, we're busy building our class lists and trying to find perfect teacher matches for all our students.
Open House is on Tuesday, August 23 from 4:00-6:00 pm. Come in to drop off supplies, meet your teachers, and visit our informational booths:
- Details about our breakfast and lunch program
- Q and A about our parent communication through PowerSchool and Blackboard.
- Meet me, the new principal
- Take a back-to-school selfie
- And more!
As the new principal at Ross, I welcome your partnership as parents. See below for ideas about how to be involved at Ross Elementary in making school great for our kids.
