Dear Elsie Rogers Families,
All elementary schools in Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation will be conducting in-person Parent-Teacher-Student Conferences for every student on Tuesday, October 18th and Wednesday, October 19th. All parents will be encourage to schedule a 15-minute conference. If you have extenuating circumstances that require a virtual conference, please reach out to your child's teacher after you have selected your time. Your prompt arrival will be greatly appreciated as we will attempt to follow the scheduled times without delay.
If you have not signed up for a conference slot yet, there is still time! Please find your child's teacher's link to select a day and time. We look forward to celebrating your child's progress.
Please let your child’s teacher know if there is anything special that you would like to discuss at the conference.

2022-2023 School Book Fees
Mrs. Lane, our school treasurer has uploaded student fees. We now have a website where families can access their balance and make a payment on line. Click this LINK. Please note that parents who want to pay by cash or check can do so as well. Guardians can stop by the Elsie Rogers office at any time between 7:30 AM - 4:00 PM and make a payment. All fees are due by 3/31/23.
Free Meals and Textbook Assistance
Your family may be eligible for assistance paying for cafeteria meals and school fees.
Households that meet the financial guidelines of the National School Lunch Program are eligible for free or reduced meal prices, as well as a discount applied to textbook rental fees. To receive this support parents must apply annually and provide information that serves to verify household income. The application is easy to fill out (choose online or paper format) and it includes a place to indicate that you also want to apply for textbook assistance. Please make sure to submit only one form (application) per household, even if the children are in different schools.
(Applications for the 2022-23 school year will be accepted beginning July 1st, 2022)
We encourage ALL Elsie Rogers parents to apply online at this website: www.schoolcafe.com.
Applying online is faster and easier than using printed forms, and your benefits will start sooner!
Congratulations to Miss Nasco's Class for being the R.O.C.K.star Class for the Month of September!
