Greetings, Rogers-Herr Family, this is your Principal, Michael Fuga, with your RHMS News!
Are you ready for some high school?! If your 8th grader is interested in a DPS Magnet School or Pathway, please join us for our 8th grade Parent Information Night (PIN) on Thursday, January 22, 6-8pm in the cafeteria, where representatives from magnet high schools will share information and answer questions about your child’s future.
If you are interested in applying to a different DPS magnet school, please make sure you fill out an online application before the deadline, which is Friday, January 30.
On Friday, January 23, all RHMS students are asked to come to school wearing Black & Yellow for the School-Wide Spelling Bee on Friday, January 23, at 8:30am in the auditorium, in which four students from each of our six teams will compete for a shot at the title of RHMS Spelling Champion. He or she will then compete in the Triangle Regional Spelling Bee on Saturday, March 14, at Duke University against the winners of school spelling bees from public, charter, private, and home schools across Durham and Orange County! In late May, Duke University will send the winner of the Triangle Regional Spelling Bee and their parent/guardian to Washington, DC to compete in the National Spelling Bee! In the six years that Duke University has been hosting the regional spelling bee tournament, one champion came from Orange County Schools (2013), one from a charter school (2010), and three winners came from Durham Public Schools (Chewning 2011, EK Powe 2012, Little River 2014), but none have ever come from Rogers-Herr! Let's make this the year that a Rogers-Herr student goes to Washington, DC to compete in the national spelling bee! Here is what you need to know to start studying:
