Sneaker Drive

RIS PTO is running a Sneaker Drive until August 11th! We are looking for used sneakers in all sizes and types that the entire family would wear. Please no boots, sandals, heels, etc. Must be sneakers only. A bin is located in the entrance of RIS. We are also looking into placing bins at Ross Country Day and Young Leaders for your sneaker donations.

RIS PTO Facebook Update:

In an effort to better support our families and provide consistency within the RIS PTO Board moving

forward, we have made the decision to start a new Facebook Group that will be managed through a specific RIS PTO Board account with additional admin support from current RIS Board members. We are asking all members of the current Ross Intermediate PTO group to request to join the new group (Ross Intermediate School PTO) at this link:

After the first week of school we will no longer be maintaining both groups, and will only be posting in the new group (Ross Intermediate School PTO). Thank you for your understanding and patience while we make this big move over the next couple weeks.

We look forward to working with you this year to support the RIS students and staff. Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.
