Why are PTO fundraisers needed?

Our PTO provides many opportunities for our students through the school year.   Some of the things we sponsor are Author’s Day, Teacher appreciation Luncheon, Field Day, Family Movie Night, Assemblies, Playground Equipment and we pay for all the bus fees associated with field trips.


**Please note that the student council and school district will hold fundraisers throughout the school year. Those fundraisers help a specific cause and do not go to our General PTO fund**


What is the goal amount the PTO hopes to raise?   $75 per student   $50,000 for the year.  We are upping our fundraising goal to make improvements to our playground that would be accessible to all students

Can fundraising be simplified?

ABSOLUTELY!  If you would rather send one check so you do not have to buy, sell or help just make your check out to ROSS PTO.  All proceeds sent will benefit our students at Ross.
