Partners in Education (PIE)

  • What is PIE?
    Rogers Elementary PIE (Partners in Education) is a parent group that focuses on supporting a positive learning experience for all students at Rogers Elementary STEM Magnet School. PIE sponsors assistance to teachers, raises funds for supplemental educational materials and learning experiences, supports school and family social events and provides a forum for parents to discuss information on issues that impact our students. We believe that a team effort between parents and teachers/staff helps offer the best possible learning environment for our students.

    How does PIE raise funds for Rogers Elementary STEM Magnet School?
    We hold two larger fundraisers each year. This fall, starting on October 4 and ending on October 12, students will once again participate in the Rogers Rocket Run (partnering with the company, Boosterthon)! Every student (regardless of pledges raised) will participate in this fun event where they will run approximately 35 themed laps in about 30 minutes with their entire grade! In February, we have the Read-a-Thon fundraiser which encourages all students to read at least 20 minutes a day (to earn weekly prizes) and collect pledges based upon reading minutes.

    RES also receives a percentage of sales from families purchasing keepsake items of their student’s artwork through Square 1 Art and/or purchasing Butter Braids. Submitting Box Tops (via the online app) is another easy way to generate funds for our school! PIE is continually working on making every fundraising event a fun experience and is also trying to reduce the number of fundraisers RES has each year.

    What does the fundraising money support at Rogers Elementary STEM Magnet School?
    • $10 per student for classroom teachers
    • $1 per student for Specialists (Art, Media, Music & Phy. Ed)
    • Grade Level Funds ($500/grade)
    • Health Office funding
    • High School scholarships for former Rogers Elementary students – (2 @ $500 each)
    • IXL access for every student
    • New teacher funds for classroom supplies ($100 per teacher new to RES)
    • Patrols/Student Council/News Crew appreciation
    • Special Education department funding
