Ross Carnival

On April 9th Ross Elementary held its annual Ross Carnival.  This year they incorporated a “Pirate” theme.  As part of the festivities students were able to “Walk the Plank” on a model pirate ship, take their pictures as a pirate, they were treated to a Magician and a Local Juggler, were able to play many games and participate in a variety of activities.  Visitors could have their nails done and their faces painted.  There was food, silent auctions, the book fair, and of course there was great music by SoundSations. 

Heifer International

Students in Mrs. Zeveney’s, Mrs. Stone’s, and Mrs. Muir’s  third grade classes recently held a Bake Sale Fundraiser to benefit the Heifer International Foundation, an organization to assist needy families in third world countries.  It was an extension activity that developed from the story “Beatrice’s Goat” by  Page McBrier which is part of their reading series.  They were able to raise over $360 for their one day lunch time effort.  The proceeds will  purchase a goat, a sheep, a trio of bunnies, a flock of geese, a flock of chicks and a flock of ducks!

The National Elementary Honor Society at Lulu Ross, under the advisement of Mr. Jay Lingo, recently participated in a service activity to raise money for the National Leukemia Foundation.  In 3 weeks, Ross students and staff collected $2,865.99 for the Delaware chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and another $288.01 for the Hayes family in honor of our local hero battling leukemia, Saylor Hayes.  Congratulations to Mrs. Heimbaugh’s class for raising the most money overall, an amazing $425.34!  Mrs. Corder’s class was close behind, collecting $333.43!  Both classes will receive a gold pennant for raising over $300.00.  There were also 10 classes who raised over $100.00 and will each receive a bronze pennant – Gagne, Harman, Mitchell, Morgan, Nichols, Muir, Stone, Favoroso, Stump and Yost! The generosity of our staff and students never ceases to amaze me.  Thanks again for your support of this worthwhile project. 

Wesley College

Recently several students from Ross Elementary received a visit from the Football Coaches and wrestlers from Wesley College.  The visit was put together by Mr. Richard Biscayart as part of a mentoring effort to provide these young boys with incentives to maintain good grades and appropriate behaviors as they proceed through their school years.  Pictured from left to right are Coach  Mike Drass , Mr. Craig Warrington, Shi’Kai Chandler, player Devar Robinson, Rayshawn Hack, Principal, Dr. Sylvia Henderson, Marcus Benton, player Tim Putman, Jaysem Vasquez, Coach Chip Knapp , and Mr. Richard Biscayart.

Ross Field Trip

The fifth grade classes at Ross Elementary traveled to Gettysburg, PA on Friday, April 9th.  As a culminating activity to a study on the Civil War they toured the battlefields at Gettysburg.  Students participated in a reenactment of the three day battle as well as visiting the museum and taking in the Cyclorama presentation of the battle.  It was an exceptional trip.
