■The senior class will have elections today, September 26th, in the auditorium between 12:23 -1:10. Candidates will be introduced, and those candidates who prepared a speech will be presenting to their class. Teachers with all senior classes should attend with their class and mixed classes should send their senior down. Students will be dismissed back to class after they have turned in their ballot.


■Good morning Rogers students: Word is out.  Students want to have input into how their school runs.  This just a gentle reminder that there will be two informational meetings after school this week: today and tomorrow, room 307, from 2:15 – 2:45pm.  We hope to see you there for either of these meetings.   Any questions please speak directly with Mr. Kimes, room 406.
