Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks to all who sent in extra change all week... Incredible generosity was shown and we will be sharing the totals when students return from the Thanksgiving Holiday break.


ANOTHER HUGE THANKS from all the teachers and staff at Ross to all of the parents that helped come together to provide the most amazing THANKSGIVING feast for us on Thursday! I know I can speak for our Ross team...This is always a highlight of the week for everyone! Such a blessing.. we felt very appreciated by our parents! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!


From all the teachers and staff at Ross, we wish a Happy Thanksgiving holiday week! We are thankful for the time we spend with your children every day! We will miss our Roadrunners and will be very excited to see their sweet faces back here in December!

Next week is the last week for our Holiday Toy Drive!

Ross student leaders from the Student Leadership Group are asking the Ross community to help provide toys for children who may not have any gifts this holiday season.


Please donate an unwrapped, unused toy for age’s infants to 12 years old. We have a large wrapped box in the front office for drop off. For every toy that a student donates, the student will receive a free CARING spirit stick.


At this time, we only have four toys in the donation box. Thanks for considering donating this winter holiday season.
