Week of September 21
Last week cross country returned to action competing at Cockrill Middle School. This week we have cross country and volleyball competing. Next week football will begin playing. I'm proud of our student athletes and coaches. They have been practicing for this moment and they deserve it.
I also want to highlight a guest speaker that the district is bringing in on October 8th. His name is Collin Kartchner and he is known for speaking on the harmful effects that social media can have on our self-esteem and self-worth. If you can make it out to RHHS on October 8th I highly recommend it. It is a very relevant message that our students face today.
Thank you for your support of Rogers MS. Have a great week!

Collin Kartchner is coming to PISD
Collin Kartchner created a popular parody Instagram account simply to poke fun of social media and used that account to raise awareness of the harmful effects social media can have on our self-esteem and self-worth. Instead of using his large following to earn paid sponsorship dollars, he used his platform to raise $100k's for hurricane victims, cancer kids, and now has become a social activist raising awareness of social media's effect on teen mental health. He travels the country speaking to kids, parents, educators, and more on the connection between social media and screen addiction on the epidemic rise in teen anxiety, depression, and suicidality. This past year, Collin has presented to 600,000+ individuals at over 500 speaking engagements. His movement to #SavetheKids has gained national attention, earning him a spot on Utah Valley's Top 40 Under 40, an audience at the NIKE and Adidas Headquarters, and a spot on the TEDx stage in September 2018. Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes said that “Collin is a WARRIOR for our kids.” He and his high school crush Elizabeth live in Pleasant Grove, UT, with their 4 amazing un-plugged kids.
