Ross Round Up

Engage. Empower. Educate. Every Day.

November 11, 2022

Dear Parents,

We had a special lunch with veterans today at Ross. The kids were able to shake the hands of veterans and give them thanks for their service. The students were so engaged and respectful.

Our food drive goal to support the Community Pantry at Ross was 400 food items. Thanks to your generosity, we hit 560 items today! We're going to keep collecting next week so keep the food coming. It will bless lives heading into Thanksgiving week.

On Friday, Nov. 18 we're celebrating our kids' hard work on building Community at Ross with an end-of-day movie party in the cafeteria. Students may bring a pillow or blanket in their backpack for the movie. The movie is "Inside Out." If you would like to opt your student out of watching "Inside Out," please let your teacher know by Friday morning.

Here's our latest YouTube videos sharing some exciting things happening at Ross:

With love,

Principal Tripp
