Welcome to the first ever Ross PTO
digital newsletter!

If you are receiving this email, it means that you provided your email address when you returned your PTO membership form.  We understand that papers and handouts may not make it home from your kids, so we thought a digital newsletter may help out with this problem.  If you do not wish to receive this newsletter, please use the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the form.  Here are some quick important announcements:

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!

If anyone has pictures from this week's elementary chorus concert, our yearbook chairperson would appreciate some for the yearbook. Please send them to Sherri Derhammer at, She will also be looking for pictures from the elementary band concert next week.  If you are available to take pictures at any events (and have clearances), please reach out to Sherri. Our yearbook committee appreciates your help!

Our PTO membership annual dues are $3 per person or $5 per family. In order to be eligible and participate in any class field trip, members must be signed up by December 31st!

Keep collecting your Boxtops for Education, Tyson labels and Campbell's Labels - drop off boxes are located in the lobby at school.

Our next PTO meeting is Monday, January 4th at 6:30pm in the Ross cafeteria.  Hope to see you there!  Have a great holiday, everyone!

PTO Vice President
