Support for Exceptional Children

When our exceptional children with disabilities are able to participate in field trips where they connect with nature and the arts, they demonstrate better their abilities, beauty, and uniqueness in their classrooms and communities. They enjoy a sense of calm when viewing a painting or sculpture at an art museum, connectedness when visiting a local farm, and creative inspiration when building their own sculptures at arts venues like The Scrap Exchange. Teacher Rita Pierson said, “Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” Will you be a champion? Please click this link to give $5 now. Thank you for supporting our exceptional students with disabilities!

Fresh Photos!

In an effort to keep the photos on our website current, please email dov.rosenberg@dpsnc.net any pictures you take at school/events that you think would be a good addition to our website/yearbook! If you have a phone with a camera, please just email them directly from your phone and remember to select “Actual Size” for the photo (that way the resolution will be good enough for our yearbook). Thank you!

School Hours

Mornings

Afternoons

Car riders and bus riders are dismissed at 2:20pm, which is when the instructional day ends. Attendance is very important and contributes to student success. We depend on parents to ensure that our students are present and on time every day.

Eat Out for RHMS!

It’s so simple! Take your family out to eat, present a flyer or card when you pay, and a percentage of what you spent will be donated to Rogers-Herr!

Eat at CPK, present the card, and RHMS gets 20% back! Big thanks to Lisa Schuster and Sheron Rowland, the PTA members who helped to put this together for us!

Hip to Clip Competition Results

logo: Box Tops for Education

Students on the Voyagers team and their families clipped and collected over 1,100 box tops! Congratulations on your victory! During this competition, all of our students and families raised over $400. Don’t stop! Keep clipping and continue to submit box tops throughout the year.Collecting the "Box Tops" insignia is SUCH an easy way to make money for our school! Just locate the image above on your favorite foods and home goods, cut them out, and have your child give them to their core teachers. Product lists and complete details are linked from on our Cool School Cash page.

SIT Team Reps Needed

Our School Improvement Team (SIT) is looking for parents to participate as a member this year. This very important team collaborates to write our School Improvement Plan (SIP). No prior experience is necessary, we just need your passion, input, ideas, and time. The SIT meets about once a month. Please email Susan Roux at sroux@cisco.com if you would like to learn more or become a part of this crucial Rogers-Herr team.

PTA Volunteers Needed

Please let us know if you have any interest in serving on our PTA Executive Board as First Vice President as we currently have an opening. We also need volunteers to help plan our annual Spring Fling (EOG Celebration Day), a lead for Teacher Appreciation, and anyone who can assist from time to time with selling shirts, concessions at dances, and with our staff appreciation breakfasts. Even volunteering once this year is a HUGE help to the PTA! Remember, the stronger we are as a PTA, the more impact we can have on the success of our children. Please email Susan Roux at sroux@cisco.com if you can help in any way. And don’t forget to become a PTA member! It's just $8 and that money goes to funding projects for our school! Joining our PTA has never been easier now that you can sign up online!

Time to Re-Link (your shopping cards)!

Did you know that last year we raised over $2,400 for our school by just linking our shopping cards at Target, Kroger and Harris Teeter to our school? All you need to do is go to customer service at your local Kroger or Harris Teeter and ask that they link (or re-link) your shopping card to our school. Both rewards programs run Aug–May each year and you MUST re-link your card to our school ID each year. Our Kroger School ID is 94484 and our Harris Teeter School ID is 3646. Our PTA can link your Harris Teeter card for you. Just email your last name and your HT card number or the phone number associated with your HT card to Susan Roux at sroux@cisco.com. We will do the rest!

Shoparoo!

Shoparoo is an app that lets you earn cash donations for your school, just by taking pictures of your shopping receipts! It's so easy! It doesn't matter where you shop, what you buy, or where you eat - every receipt counts! Grade levels compete for the most money raised. We just received a check from Shoparoo for $55! Use this referral code: goh50341. Join us in fundraising today! Download the free app here!

Volunteering at Rogers-Herr

We have so much appreciation for our parent volunteers who give of their valuable time! All potential DPS volunteers must complete an online volunteer application and undergo a background check before volunteering. The process will take 5-7 days. Once approved, your certification is good for two years. If you have any questions, please contact guidance counselor Ryanne Logan at 919.560.3970 x 70234.
