Dear Families and Staff of Rossmoor Elementary School,
We hope everyone had a wonderful, albeit short, summer! We are excited about the 2018-2019 school year and all the new and exciting things happening on campus. Whether you have a new student entering the school or have been around for more years than you would like to admit, we welcome you all into our special community.
There are two groups dedicated to supporting our children, our school and our community here on campus: PTA and Friends of Rossmoor (FOR). Every day at Rossmoor you will see our amazing volunteers and your PTA and FOR dollars hard at work. Our goal every year is to support our school and to enrich our children’s education. Recently, we were able to provide new computers and chromebooks for the media center, a new STEM lab and supplies and, coming soon, a new marquee and school garden. We want to help provide programs that positively impact our students and staff and inspire them to achieve great things. In addition, we hope to leave a legacy and thoughtfully spend the money that we all work together to fundraise during events like Step-It-Up and Knightlife.
We hope you will support these incredible programs by joining our PTA and attending our events this year. Our goal is always to reach 100% membership and to give every student a voice. However, beyond joining the PTA we strongly encourage you to get involved at Rossmoor, at whatever level you choose. Whether it is attending a PTA or FOR meeting, volunteering in the classroom, helping during an enrichment event, such as our Ice Cream Social or Campout (scheduled August 23rd) or assisting a classroom teacher by doing some projects at home, it ALL truly makes a difference.
To learn more about PTA or FOR and what is happening at Rossmoor, we invite you to follow us on Facebook, check out our websites or ask us question any time, either in person or by email. We also invite you to attend our PTA/FOR Meet and Greet on Back-To-School Night at 4:30pm on August 16th, our first PTA meeting on August 23rd at 8:05am, and our first FOR meeting on August 15th at 8:05am, both at Kids Korner, where all are welcome.
Rossmoor Elementary is a special school with a long history of success. We are happy that you are part of it and we look forward to meeting you all.
