  • This year Ross, Lehman-Jackson and Lake Noxen PTO’s are partnering together to bring the Harlem Wizards to our high school. This is a fun and affordable night out for a family, the game will be held on Saturday, January 21st at 6:30pm. All proceeds from this event will be equally divided between the three elementary schools. Pre-Sale forms went home this week (12/2/16). If you decide not to get your tickets during the pre-sale, tickets will also be sold various times in January which we will be announced. Tickets will also be sold at the door that night. We are all very happy to be working together to bring you this event. We hope you will come out and support your schools.
  • With the cooler weather arriving, please make sure your child has the appropriate outerwear for outdoor recess.
  • Check out our new calendar page which will house all of our important upcoming events including assemblies, book fairs, field trips, and etc.
  • Our yearbook coordinator needs your help! If you have pictures from any events at the school, please email them to rossyearbook@frontier.com – or if you know you can be at an event, please take pictures. As hard as she tries, she cannot be at every event and get pictures!
  • The new Lake-Lehman Makerspace Classroom is looking for donations or re-purposed items for their new program.  Examples of items needed include: LEGOs, K’NEX, Lincoln Logs, magnet tiles, magnets, puzzles, scramble squares, spirographs, jewelry making kids, and scrapbooking paper.  Supplies may be sent in with your child or dropped off at Back-To-School night.  Contact Mrs. Stanley for more information: 570-477-4309.
  • Please be aware that in order to participate in ANY volunteering at the schools (book fairs, field trips, field day, holiday shop to name a few!), you must submit security clearances. The district has a link for volunteers on their webpage which has all the information. If you want to help out and volunteer, please submit the clearances to Ross as soon as possible! Thanks!
