The Meal of a Lifetime
Thanks to a $190,340 grant from the Walmart Foundation, now all students at Old Wire Road Elementary, Grace Hill Elementary, Joe Mathias Elementary and Bonnie Grimes Elementary are able to start the day by eating breakfast in the classroom with their teacher.
 
Since the program began, approximately 85 percent of all enrolled students in the four pilot schools are eating breakfast, which is more than a 60 percent increase. Overall, more than 1,760 students at the four schools are now eating breakfast daily. Teachers find that students often have fewer tardies because they want to eat with their class and that a nutritious breakfast helps prepare their students for a day of learning, which can then fuel them for a lifetime.

Inclement Weather Make-up Days
Rogers Public Schools applied to the Arkansas Department of Education for a waiver for the last two snow days and received state approval. Rogers Public Schools will make up 11 of the 13 missed school days on Jan. 20, Feb. 17, May 27, May 28-30, and June 2-6 for all schools on the regular calendar. (Eastside Elementary, which is on a continuous learning calendar, will make up its missed days on Jan. 20, Feb. 17, and April 28-30, May 1- 2, & June 12, 13, 16, & 17.) Calendars are available online.
