Spring Carnival

Did you know it’s PAC fundraising dollars that pay for the technology (computers, iPads, etc) in our children’s classrooms at Ross Road? 

Currently, the PAC is trying to raise $20,000 to purchase new computers for Ross Road. One of the biggest PAC fundraisers is the ever-popular SPRING CARNIVAL!
So mark your calendars for FRIDAY, JUNE 8th — 5pm-8pm.
Bring your whole family, tell your neighbours, and come out for a fun evening in support of Ross Road!

Bike to School Week

Tune your bike and get ready to ride – Bike to School Week at Ross Road will be June 4th – 8th!

Last year Ross Road won TOP ELEMENTARY SCHOOL … let’s do it again!  Our prize last year was a bike from HUB, which we will give away at the Spring Carnival.  Each day a student bikes to school they will get an entry into the bike draw.

Other highlights include:

  • Class pizza parties for top number of riders for primary & intermediate classes
    Bike skills sessions offered by iride & Escape adventures
  • Kick off bike parade with bike demo by local Dad & Pro-rider Wade Simmons
    Velodrome field trips

If you’re interested in helping out with this event, please email Jackie_Hicks@hotmail.com
