Partners In Education-PIE

  • 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.  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 do this? 

    The Chip Shoppe fall sale and spring Read-a-Thon are our primary fundraisers.  We also earn nominal funds through family events such as Turkey Bingo, February Freeze Dance, Spring Carnival and Fall/Spring Book Fairs as well as from sales of school spirit wear and Square 1 Art.  PIE has worked to successfully reduce the number of small fundraisers in recent years and hopes to grow our Read-a-Thon in the future!
