October Principal Message

From Mrs. Kozel

Fall Is Here!

Now that we are well into fall, that means a few things...

  • The weather will be cooling down - hopefully.
  • Students will get comfortable and will need reminders of behavior and academic expectations
  • Quarter progress reports will be coming soon!
You can access your student's grades, attendance, and many other things on the Parent Portal. Please let us know if you need assistance.

We have many upcoming events, free workshops for families, and opportunities for your students. Check below for more information.

Student Government Announcement

Our Student Outpost is up and running and going strong! Every quarter, the Mustang Money that students earn by following the Mustang 4, can be exchanged for rewards such as weekly treats worth 3-15MM, a trip to the Prize Room for 100MM, and more! Have something to donate? School supplies, snacks, Amazon gift card? Reach out to @Danielle Holtey for information about how to get involved. And a huge thank you to all the families and friends who were able to participate in our first fundraiser of the year at Raising Cane's! Stay tuned for more ways to support Will Rogers.

Upcoming Events & General Reminders

Early Dismissals

We understand that there are some appointments that are unavoidable. Please try to schedule appointments for after school as much as possible. This minimizes disruption of class or trying to find your student when they are out at lunch.
