Week 5 Message from our Principal, Ms. Limon

Rogers Family,


We are at the halfway point of the first grading period. Progress reports will be sent out. this week, for students who are in danger of failing a class. However, you can and should review your child's grades through the PowerSchool Parent Portal regularly. Reach out to your child's teacher(s) any time you have questions or concerns.


We want all students to have the opportunity to participate in a school club. Since many of our students have been unable to take part due to difficulty arranging after school transportation, this year we have built in a monthly enrichment period into our school day. One Friday a month, students will be able to attend a grade level club during the last hour of school and this Friday will be our first club day. We will still have some after school activities for some upper grade students. We will share information when those programs begin.


I want to remind you about a few other things happening this week:

  1. This week, on Wednesday ONLY, students may wear a College Shirt with jeans as part of or celebration of Attendance Awareness Month.
  2. Remind your child to complete a Rogers House Challenge to strengthen their character and earn points for their house at the same time. House Challenges are great activities to complete as a family that help bridge home and school learning.
  3. Coffee with the Counselor is this Wednesday morning. We will include our Title I meeting on the agenda. The meeting will be recorded for those who cannot attend.


Remember to screen your students at home for COVID symptoms before sending them to school. If you have any questions, call our nurse, Ms. Herrington.


Let us know if we can support you in any way! We Are the Eagles, Watch Us Soar!

We need your help for Carpool!

During construction, we have very limited space for parking and carpool. We need your help to keep our carpool lines moving safely.

  1. Make sure to stay in your car while in carpool. If you anticipate needing to get out of your car, please park on Lovers Lane.
  2. Please be patient about waiting in the carpool line. If you are finding that you are usually in a hurry every morning, then we ask you to add time to your morning routines.
  3. For afternoons, be aware that the school day technically ends at 3:15. We begin the dismissal process a bit early to ensure that all students are out by 3:15 with the younger students coming out earlier than older students. If you are picking up 3rd-5th students, please come right at 3:15 to give the other parents of only younger kids time to get through. That way you won't hold up the line waiting for your child to come out.
  4. Skipping people in line is not appropriate. We are a team and we want to model for our students what it looks like to treat others with respect.

Thank you so much for your help! If we operate as a community we can keep everyone safe and keep carpool moving efficiently. Construction will last through winter break so we appreciate your mindfulness and support.

*September is Attendance Awareness Month!

Celebrate with Dallas ISD during the month of September to promote attendance! See the flyer below for weekly dress up days (every Wednesday during the month of September) #ShowUpDallasISD
