About the RPO


The Rogers Parents Organization is committed to being a place that continues to bring our school family together. We are #RogersStrong, and we hope to continue to build on the supportive, positive, and engaging atmosphere we've all loved about this school.  We will continue to focus on parent involvement, communication between the school, parents, and district, and transparency for how funds raised through RPO benefit our school and our kids.
