Points of #PHMExcellence


P-H-M Board of School Trustees and Administration is committed to academic excellence and supporting our teachers inside the classroom with a multitude of supports. To help attract, retain and reward P-H-M teachers, the Board Monday night (10/10/22) approved the financial increases below making P-H-M teachers the highest paid in the area!

  • 7% salary increase for eligible teachers

  • Qualifying 2021-2022 teachers receive $600 stipend

This is why P-H-M is able to attract the brightest, the best and most experienced. In fact we've had 8 Top 10 Indiana Teachers of the Year since 2008--most recently Mrs. Amanda Fox from Elsie Rogers. We've had one Teacher of the year in 2011.

Have a friend or family member that wants to join the P-H-M family? Have them contact P-H-M's Human Resources Department at phmhumanresourcesinfo@phm.k12.in.us.

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.

The conference provides the teachers with an opportunity to discuss your child’s academic progress. This time together will provide an opportunity to exchange information about a child and renders valuable supplementary information to the report card. In an effort to make conferences more meaningful for both parents and students, we encourage you to allow your child to participate in the actual conference with us. We trust you will look upon conferences as a beneficial experience.

If you have not signed up for a conference, please find your chilld's teacher's name below and sign up!

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!
