Ross Elementary Buy-A-Book-For-Kids Event! April 26, 27, 28 & 29

This is an annual event that allows participants to give the perfect Mother’s and Father’s Day gifts and support their local public elementary school at the same time!  


Participants donate $25 to purchase a book for the Ross library in honor of a loved one.  The Ross PTA sends the honoree a letter informing them of the gift in their name, a bookplate inscribed with the donor and honoree’s names is placed in the book purchased, and Ross students enjoy quality literature for years to come – a win for everyone!  


Donating a book is a nice way to honor a loved one on other special occasions as well, including weddings, graduations, new jobs, or additions to the family.  Letters to honorees are timed to arrive on Mother’s Day (May 12th), Father’s Day (June 16th), or sometime in between, as appropriate.
