Upcoming Dates in May for John Rogers

National Teacher Appreciation Day is Tuesday, May 8th

PLEASE Give YOUR Thanks!

All year, grade levels have shown appreciation for our John Rogers staff by hosting surprise food events in the staff lounge. The staff has been SO grateful!

Now is the time for you & your child(ren) to show gratitude to your teacher(s). Please take a moment to show appreciation for your teacher(s) on Tuesday, May 8th. This can be accomplished by making a card/picture, sending an email, picking a flower from your yard, etc. We are simply hoping your family can use this day as a moment to express your thanks.

We are also hoping you can reach out and thank at least one other adult beyond your classroom teacher. Please consider recognizing one of the MANY people working for our children like instructional assistants, custodial staff, specialists, office staff, etc.

Questions? Please contact Lisa Matsumoto matsulisa@gmail.com

BEX V Update – Thank you to everyone that came to represent John Rogers at last week’s BEX V Community Meeting! We had an incredible showing and the current proposed plan has John Rogers up for possible facility and conditions improvements. Please be on the look-out for fall community meetings as we need to ensure we remain on the levy proposal!
