Ross Round Up

Engage. Empower. Educate. Every Day.

August 19, 2022

Dear Parents,


School starts next week! Are you ready? We're getting closer to being ready every day.


Monday-Wednesday, August 22-24, teachers will gather for Professional Development and time to get rooms ready for students. Our theme for Ross Elementary this year is "Tell Our Story!" and we want to encourage students to learn more about who they are, what their own unique strengths are, and share those with the world! Our plan is to have students help us create original content for our new "Ross Elementary School" YouTube channel. Check out our first video! Subscribe for more great content featuring your favorite students and teachers.


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
  • Help finishing registration or setting up parent communication
  • Meet me, the new principal
  • Take a back-to-school selfie on our amazing Card My Yard backdrop
  • 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.

We need parents to join our Parent Advisory Committee!

Our school needs to grow a Parent Advisory Committee--a group of parents that help solve problems at the school, honor staff, and organize fundraising. Would you be interested in joining this group? If so, click to get information.
