Greetings, Rogers-Herr Family, this is your Principal, Michael Fuga, with your RHMS News!
LifeTouch will return to Rogers-Herr on Friday, March 14 to take pictures immediately after school in the gym. ALL Rogers-Herr clubs (except for Battle of the Books and National Junior Honor Society) as well as spring sports teams will have a group picture taken for the yearbook. If your child is currently in an official Rogers-Herr club or winter sports team, please make arrangements for your child to be picked up from school at 3pm on Friday, March 14.
The Durham YouthWork Internship Program offers children ages 14 and up the opportunity to gain work experience and develop skills while connecting with local government and businesses around Durham. Take a look at the summer jobs available at this link and then download, complete, and print an application at this link. Students must complete one application per job for which they apply. As of now there is only one job available for 14 year-olds, and the application deadline for that job is March 14. For more information, contact James Dickens at the Office of Economic and Workforce Development at 919.560.4965 x15217 or email@example.com.
Durham Public Schools has decided that students will not have to make up three of our snow days. That means that, as of now, intersession will take place from March 29 - April 20.
The US Department of Education mandates that every middle school student take a standardized test in Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies at the end of each school year in any state that won a Race to the Top grant. These tests must be administered by a certified teacher while another adult is in the room, called a proctor. These wonderful folks must first be approved by the school district as a volunteer before they can serve in this crucial role. Please apply right now at this link! Testing does not start until May but we will need about FIFTY proctors during EVERY day of testing (of which there are many) so we would like to begin the process of signing proctors up now. If you are unable to help, please consider asking an aunt, uncle, cousin, neighbor, or anyone else over the age of 18 to complete the DPS Volunteer application and volunteer to be a proctor at Rogers-Herr! To volunteer and/or ask questions about proctoring, please call Karen Brown (919.560.3970 x70234), Natalie Jones (x70220), or Karen Thompson (x70221).
Each summer, the NCCU Law School hosts a week-long day camp for middle and high school students. Registration is $120 per child and scholarships are available; registration is limited to the first 36 participants to register. This summer's camp will take place on June 23-27. From Monday through Thursday, the camp will take place from 9am – 4pm and on Friday is will be from 9am – 1pm. The Camp is designed to expose students to the field of law. Participants get an inside look at the legal system and the courts, meet local attorneys and judges, visit the Durham courthouse, learn about legal research using the NCCU Law Library, take part in a mock trial and find out what it’s like to prepare for law school. Interactive sessions with current NCCU law students, faculty and administrators are a feature of the camp. Please call 919.530.1766 with any questions you may have. Applications are available from our guidance counselors.
That is all for this week's announcements. Have a wonderful week. RAMS ROCK!
