About Us

Principal's Message: 

Mrs. La Rosa

Hello RMS School Families,

I am honored to be the Principal at Emilie J. Ross Middle School for the 2021-2022 school year. I have been a long-time resident of Hughson, attended all Hughson schools, and started my career in Education in 1996 teaching English at Hughson High School. I feel blessed to work with a dedicated staff and community that is committed to our students.  There is no other place I'd rather be than in Hughson. This town is a special place to raise a family.

In my 26 years in education, the past two years have been the most difficult with school closures due to COVID-19. Our goal this year at Ross Middle School is to connect with our students first and foremost. We know instruction is an essential part of our student's education. However, the main focus will also be the emotional and mental welfare of our RMS students. Please know that we understand families are struggling, discouraged, and frustrated. We are here to help and want to be a haven for our students and families. As I type this welcome message, I have no idea what this year has in store for any of us. I can tell you that regardless of what comes our way, we will do whatever it takes to provide the best learning environment we can. Our teachers are committed to connecting with students while delivering a standards-based curriculum.

We are excited about the opportunity to work with you and your child to provide a safe and productive learning environment.  I encourage you to stop by or call me to share ideas, concerns, or questions you may have.  I look forward to working with you to support your child in the year ahead.
