CONGRATULATIONS...

...to our own - Lane Pavatt for having his design chosen as the design to represent the Rogers Public Schools 'Breakfast in the Classroom' programs at Bonnie Grimes, Old Wire, Grace Hill, and Mathias Elementary Schools. Students in those schools will begin seeing his art work associated with this awesome new opportunity within those schools. Lane is currently a sophomore at Rogers New Technology HS.


Learners Certified as Microsoft Office Specialists

Learners in Computer Applications courses have the opportunity to become certified as Microsoft Office Specialists (MOS) in the various Microsoft programs. MOS is an industry recognized certification and is no easy feat. The exam is production-based and at a much higher level than what a typical high school student would be exposed to. However, Mrs. Lothridge has seen success with several learners who have recently earned their MOS certification in one or more of the Microsoft programs. These learners will have a leg up on the competition when it comes to being college and career ready!
