This year John Rogers is excited to offer the “Jump Start” program to our incoming kindergartners. This free kindergarten transition program will be held August 19-23 from 9 AM to 12 PM each day. This program allows kindergartners to become familiar with the school and begin learning some kindergarten routines. They will also experience math, literacy, fine motor and problem solving stations.
Incoming kindergarten families should receive a letter from John Rogers during the first week of June. If you do not receive the kindergarten letter, please contact our school office.
The John Rogers staff and PTA invite you to join us as we honor and thank Mrs. Boyd for her 15 years as principal of John Rogers Elementary. Marcia is retiring after many years serving as an educator, mentor, leader and friend in the Seattle Public Schools. An all school assembly and reception will be held on Tuesday, June 11 at 2:00 PM. Please contact Andrea Bergan at firstname.lastname@example.org or Allison Van Doren at email@example.com with any questions.
