About Ross Elementary SchoolLetter to Ross

$700,000 (roughly $6.3 million in 2015) went into opening the Donald E Ross School in his honor in 1951, where countless generations of students have been educated. While at war, Donald E Ross wrote a letter to Mr. Libby, principal of the Abraham Lincoln School, on January 10, 1944, about how much he missed and appreciated teaching now that he was away.

The longer I am away from teaching, the more value I put into the profession.

-Donald E Ross
