Greetings, Rogers-Herr Family, this is your Principal, Michael Fuga, with your RHMS News!
Our 8th graders will take the ACT Explore test on Wednesday, October 22, which will result in a slight modification of the 8th grade schedule for that day. The ACT Explore is published by ACT, Inc., who also publishes the well-known college readiness standardized test called the ACT. To put it simply, the ACT Explore test is a pre-test for the ACT (like the PSAT is for the SAT). ACT, Inc. is a competitor of the College Board, who publishes the SAT. Click here for additional information on the ACT Explore test website. Information will also be sent home with 8th graders on Monday, October 20, which is the day our 8th graders will complete the background survey questions in class.
Did you know you can link your Kroger, Harris Teeter, Food Lion, and/or Target frequent shopper cards to Rogers-Herr? Did you know the money Rogers-Herr gets from these links makes a BIG difference? These retailers will donate a percentage of your purchase directly to RHMS! Most cards need to be re-linked at the beginning of every school year and can be done online or at their customer service desks. Our school codes can be found on
our COOL CASH page on the Rogers-Herr website. Please link your cards TODAY!
PLUS Harris Teeter will donate an additional 10% of your total purchase, but only when you use the Express Lane between September 3 & October 28! Customers must be linked to our school at the time of your purchase. Want to double check that you are linked? Look at the bottom of your receipt to see the name of our school!

StudentCam is C-SPAN's annual national video documentary competition that encourages students to think critically about issues that affect our communities and our nation. Students in grades 6-12 are asked to create a short (5-7 minute) video documentary on a topic related to the competition theme. The theme for this year is: “The Three Branches and You.” Tell a story that demonstrates how a policy, law or action by either the Executive, Legislative, or Judicial branch has affected you or your community. With cash prizes totalling $100,000, C-SPAN awards prizes to 150 student documentaries, and 53 teacher advisers! All eligible documentaries must adhere to the Competition Rules, and be submitted to C-SPAN by Tuesday, January 20, 2015. Winners will be announced in March 2015.
That is all for this week's announcements. Have a wonderful week. RAMS ROCK!
