2 0 0 9 – 2 0 1 0 WA S A Y E A R O F significant milestones and successes at Ross School. We watched as our tenth graduating class—our largest ever, with 52 students—came through the doors of the Great Hall to receive their diplomas. The class included three boarding students, representing 45 total boarders who attended Ross School from a dozen countries including the United States. We also experienced our first group of kindergartners to have attended Ross School since they were in pre-nursery, and our first group of third graders who began in kindergarten, embarking on the Ross Spiral of Cultural History.

The past year included notable fiscal successes as well. While still making needbased financial aid available to over a third of our students we collected over $14 million in tuition and raised over $1 million more through Annual Giving and events. Our Community Programs, including SummerCamp @Ross, Tennis @Ross and after school programs, as well as space rentals, contributed another $1 million to revenues.

All of our income streams are of critical importance to Ross School, including support from our donors. Because the cost of a Ross education exceeds tuition, we rely on fundraising events and Annual Giving to ensure the continuation of small classes, incredible visual and performing arts programs, state-of-the-art science labs, interscholastic athletics, farm animals at the Lower School, senior projects, Winter Intersession, our incredible Café and the other programs that make Ross a unique and engaging learning community. All of us at Ross thank everyone who participated in the 2009-2010 Annual Giving campaign and other fundraising efforts. You are making a difference for Ross School students as they prepare for meaningful lives in our global society. Tremendous thanks go to our Founder and Board President, Courtney Sale Ross, for her boundless courage, vision and generosity since Ross School’s inception. We are all indebted to both Courtney and Steven J. Ross for making Ross School possible and ensuring that we are always looking to the future and what it will require of our graduates. I would also like to thank the rest of the Board of Trustees and our wonderful Parents Association, especially our 2009-2010 president, Jennifer Carney Iacono. As you read this in the fall of 2010, we are celebrating Ross School’s 20th anniversary year, a significant milestone indeed and one of which we should all be proud. With regards to Annual Giving for 2010-2011, I encourage you to contribute to the greatest extent possible. Ross School is in a wonderful position, having made great strides toward long-term sustainability in just two decades, but we still have a way to go together. The 2009-2010 budget gap was $3,044,934; it is critical that we work together to close that gap. Every gift is important, no matter the size, as we strive for both generous Annual Giving and 100% participation. Thank you again for your involvement at Ross School and your commitment to our success. I am so happy and grateful to have the opportunity to work with all of you on behalf of Ross School’s students and I look forward to your continued support. With my best regards,

Live at Club Starlight S E V E N T H A N N UA L , J U N E 1 9 , 2 010 We are truly grateful to all of our families, friends and sponsors who donated their time energy and contributions to ensure the success of our Seventh Annual Live at Club Starlight Benefit. The event raised over $650,000 for Ross School programs and the Steven J. Ross Scholarship Fund, which has provided financial support to our students since our School’s inception in 1991. The Steven J. Ross Scholarship Fund enabled approximately 45 percent of our students to receive financial assistance during our 2009-10 academic year. This year’s Honoree, renowned screen and stage actress, singer, author and Ross grandparent Julie Andrews, was recognized for her lifetime commitment to education and philanthropy. This unforgettable evening included dinner catered by our very own Ross Café, outstanding musical performances by the Miracles, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas and Junior Walker’s AllStar Band as well as successful silent and live auctions, led by auctioneers Dr. Gerry Curatola and Head of School Michele Claeys. A heartfelt thank you to our student Devon Leaver for her performance in honor of Julie Andrews. Many thanks to our Evening Chairs Anke and Juergen Friedrich and Anne Hearst McInerney and Jay McInerney, as well as to our Co-Chairs: Helen Bransford, Cheri and Keith Cohen, Georgia and Dr. Gerry Curatola, Barrie Glabman and Adam Schwartz, Karin and Kenneth Grant, Susan and Edward McMenamin, Ellen Mellow and Robert Kaner, Leslie Murdock and Josh Grotstein, Jane and Jack Rivkin, Amanda Ross, Hilary Geary Ross and Wilbur Ross, Kathie Russo and Davo, Randy Schindler, Daisy and Larry Schwimmer, Patti and David Silver, Sarah Stenn and James Grabb, and Susan and Michael Verde.
