Ross Round Up

Engage. Empower. Educate. Every Day.

October 14, 2022

Dear Parents,

Thursday was a special day at Ross with the Jog-a-Thon. The kids had so much fun! Check out the video from our Ross Elementary School YouTube channel.

Big thanks to Cassandra Hammel, a super parent that organized it, and to all our awesome parent volunteers. We love the contributions our parents make on campus--we could not do this without you.

Next week, students will be setting goals in class on Compassion, our October Ross Value. We're excited to see how they show their Compassion to others all month. They showed Compassion this week by making posters to thank our cafeteria ladies for all the hard work they do. Next week, they'll be thanking bus drivers.

With love,

Principal Tripp

Parent-Teacher Conferences Next Week

October 19-21 are Parent-Teacher Conference days. Teachers have been reaching out to schedule conferences, and we're excited to see you there.

All three days are early release days at 1:30 so that we can start conferences at 2:00 each day.

Our goal is to meet with every family and share how your students are doing and what we're doing with our AVID program at Ross that's getting us such great results.

Download the Kuna School District app prior to conferences so that we can get you set up on Blackboard Reach, our new school-wide communication tool!

Who are we at Ross?

Each day at Ross we will:

Our dream is to:

Ignite a passion for lifelong learning and personal growth so students will be successful in college, career, and life.

Our school values are:

We treat others with dignity and respect. We are ethical and humble in our actions. We are COMPASSIONATE.

We hold tight to our convictions. Decisions are made to make the lives of others better. We are LEADERS.

We are stronger and better when we work together. We are a part of a beautiful and diverse COMMUNITY.

We are bold, we take risks, we are flexible and willing to step out of our comfort zone. We are INNOVATIVE.
