February E-Newsletter

Hello everyone!  Hope you are managing to stay warm on this frigid night and weekend.  

Our last PTO meeting was on 2/1/16. Here are some highlights of what was discussed:

Please be aware that in order to participate in ANY volunteering at the schools (book fairs, field trips, field day, holiday shop, etc.), you must submit security clearances. Check out the district website for further information:  If you want to help out and volunteer, submit the clearances to Ross as soon as possible!

We will still be looking for photos from school events for the remainder of the year.  If you are available to take pictures at any events (and have the appropriate clearances) please reach out to Sherri Derhammer at, Our yearbook committee appreciates your help!

The winner of the box tops contest was 5th grade with 2,599 box tops!  Each student received a $5 coupon for the book fair.  Even though the contest is over, keep collecting those box tops, Tyson and Campbell's labels.  Drop boxes are located in the lobby at the school.

Our next PTO meeting is Monday, March 7th at 6:30pm in the Ross cafeteria.  Hope to see you there! 

-Michelle Davies
PTO Vice President
