  • ATTENDANCE

  • Did you know? 
    • Absences can be a sign that a student is losing interest in school, struggling with school work, dealing with a bully or facing some other potentially serious difficulty. 
    • By 9th grade, regular and high attendance is a better predictor of graduation rates than 8th grade test scores. 
    • Missing 10%, or about 18 days, of the school year can drastically affect a students academic success. 
    • After missing 10 days of school, due to illness, a mandatory medical letter is required to send home. 
    • Attendance is an important life skill that will help your child graduate from college and keep a job. 
    What you can do:
    • Daily routines, such as finishing homework, and getting a good night's sleep.
    • Try not to schedule medical, dental, or other appointments during a school day. Wait for the days off of school or after. 
    • Don't let your child stay home unless truly sick. Complaints of a headache or stomach ache may be signs of anxiety. 
    • Communicate with the school.
    • Be truthful on why your child is missing any school. We can help find patterns, and get them resolved if needed. 

  • HEALTH OFFICE

  • Health Awareness

    We’re in the middle of flu season and we’re also tracking available information about the emerging and quickly spreading coronavirus.

    At ISD 728, we follow guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health.  The available information about coronavirus suggests a low immediate health risk for the general public and the guidance at this point is to take the same precautions recommended for avoiding colds and flu.

    Minnesota Department of Health advises people to:

    1. Stay home when they are sick
    2. Cover their cough
    3. Practice good hand washing

    We reinforce these practices at school - for our students and staff - and invite you to do the same with students at home.  If you have questions, feel free to contact your school health office. 


  • COLLEGE AND CAREER

  • 9th Grade Students                                 Reality Check - March 5th

    The Wings Financial Foundation will be hosting a Reality Fair for 9th grade students on Thursday March 5th. The Reality Fair will provide a “real life” simulation for high school students to practice budgeting and make financial choices based on their life scenario. The students will be given a life scenario and training prior to the simulation. The day of the simulation, students will visit different merchants such as housing, grocery, childcare, etc. and will make financial choices for their “life”. This is a hands-on experience for students that will engage them in the budgeting and financial decision-making process.

     

    11th Grade Students                                    Junior Job Shadow Day - March 5th

    In an effort to provide every 11th grade student with an opportunity to explore a career interest, all RHS juniors will be required to participate in a job shadowing activity. Eleventh grade students will not be attending school on this day. They will report directly to their job shadowing experience(s).

     


  • TESTING

  • There are many testing opportunities at Rogers High School. Some are required, while others are optional. Please use the links below to learn more about the different exams, resources and registration information.

    ACT (Juniors)
    All Juniors will be taking the ACT for FREE on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, and are automatically registered for the test by the school district. No online registration for this test date. Click here for further information on additional ACT testing opportunities. See ACT website for registration deadlines.

    PreACT (Sophomores Only)
    On March 24, 2020, 10th grade students will have a Digital Learning Day. One of their options will be to take the PreACT exam at Rogers High School for a fee. Click here for further information.

    Advanced Placement Exams 2019-2020
    Below are the dates for AP Exams. Each AP Exam is given only once, so students need to make sure they put exam dates on their calendars. Please contact Shane Noecker at shane.noecker@isd728.org if you have any questions about exam dates or registration. The absolute final day to make changes to exam registrations for courses that meet during first semester is November 8 at 12 p.m., after which there is a $40 change/late fee.

     

    AP Proctors Needed!

    Proctors are needed for this year’s Advanced Placement Exams, which will be administered May 4-15. If you are a responsible adult—and not also a high school student—you are qualified to proctor the AP Exam. Duties include reading instructions, supervising the exam, and maintaining the security of testing materials. Proctors are compensated by the hour. Parents are encouraged to apply, though proctors cannot supervise testing rooms where a relative is testing. The AP proctor position will be posted to the ISD 728 website in February and interviews will be conducted in March. If you are interested in proctoring, please email Shane Noecker (shane.noecker@isd728.org).

  • ACTIVITIES & ATHLETICS 

  • PROM 2020                         *TICKET SALES start MARCH 16th*

    This year the theme is Purple Rain inspired by Prince. The Prom Committee has been busy working on decorations to match the theme, as well as menu planning to make this an event to remember! 

    All prom events will be held at the McNamara Alumni Center this year. We are excited to add the Red Carpet Welcome to our event! Students will be welcomed to the McNamara Alumni Center by entering the venue like a Hollywood superstar.  Students will even have paparazzi taking pictures and greeting them at the event. The dinner and dance will follow this red carpet welcome. 

    Tickets will be on sale from March 16th - 27th for $80 per ticket. We encourage students to purchase tickets within this time frame to help us plan accordingly. The price will increase to $85 per ticket from March 28th - April 3rd. Tickets sales will shut down on April 4th so the Prom Committee has time to submit a final count to the venue.
