Welcome to Jerry Ross Elementary School. Jerry Ross opened in 2003. The state of Indiana has recognized Jerry Ross Elementary School as an Exemplary Progress school every year since we opened. We are very excited to be one of the premier elementary schools in the state of Indiana. Our experienced teachers and dedicated staff are here to serve the families of Winfield and Crown Point.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Jerry Ross Elementary School. Our mission is to help every child discover their unique talents, gifts and purpose. We believe that all children can learn and grow when their individual needs are met and they feel safe and connected. We value curiosity, risk-taking, and challenges. Every student and staff member strives for growth each day, not perfection. Mistakes are essential while learning and we encourage all students to share their perspectives and thinking. Our school celebrates diversity and inclusion. Learning is an active, creative process. Students are encouraged to participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities that interest them and stretch their growth. Finally, our ultimate goal is to create a learning experience that sparks our students’ imagination and makes them love coming to school every day.
Our School theme is "Fit for SPACE." Being "SPACE Fit " is our goal for every student. SPACE is an acronym, but also represents the future, and the unknown. In order for students to be successful and live rewarding and productive lives, they must develop their social, physical, academic, cultural and emotional skills
