Dear Parents,

Welcome to Rogers Elementary!  We are a Title I school and have over 96% of our students on free or reduced lunch.  Sixty-two percent of our students do not speak English as their first language and we work diligently to prepare them to be successful beyond high school while they are with us.  Approximately 580 students are enrolled at Rogers from all over the world.  Many of our students have moved to Amarillo from Mexico, Thailand, Burma, Vietnam and Somalia.  These students have so much to offer those of us who have lived in the United States all our lives.  We look at these children with a desire to learn about the places they have been and a chance to teach them about our community.  We know they will offer our students a global perspective of places other than our own neighborhood which will be critical for them as they join the work force later in life. 

 

We have a great group of teachers and staff who are excited about working with your children.  Our goal is to instill a love for reading and writing and understanding of math skills.  This will help them achieve success as they continue their education and career far beyond the 12th grade.  We know that parents are the first teachers and look to support what you have started at home.  Please contact us if you have any questions. 

 

Sincerely,

Terri Huseman
