Ross Round Up

Engage. Empower. Educate. Every Day.

November 18, 2022

Dear Parents,

Happy Thanksgiving Break! Hopefully you'll have a wonderful break with chances to spend time with loved ones during the week.

We had some fun school-wide assemblies and activities this last week.

  • On Tuesday, KHS Music students came to our school to share their talents with Ross students. Wow, our kids were so into it! Check out the video here.
  • On Thursday, we had the two actors from Missoula Children's Theater leading kids in a play during a school-wide assembly. Check out the picture below of our super engaged students or check our Facebook page. Ask your student about the "Princess and the Penguin." They had so much fun at the interactive assembly.
  • On Friday, we wrapped up our focus on Community for the month with a movie assembly at the end of the day. The two classes that brought in the most food from the Food Drive were Mrs. Hunter's class and Mrs. Marshall's class, and they got cookies as a reward.

This was a great week of building Community and students setting Community goals. We love our kids and will miss them next week even as we enjoy our family time over break.

See you back on Monday, Nov. 28 after Thanksgiving Break!

With love,

Principal Tripp
