Thursday, June 4th - 8th Grade Parade at RHMS (10:00 am - 12:00 pm)
8th Grade families are encouraged to decorate cars (posters, balloons, streamers, name placards, etc.) and drive through Rogers-Herr’s campus to bid farewell to middle school. Students may wave goodbye to RH staff and classmates. Students and families will remain in their vehicles during the entire event. RHMS staff members will be present along the parade route.  Vehicles will enter the front of the school’s parking lot following the carpool route, then turn right driving past the track, towards the softball and baseball fields, ending up on the backside of the bus lot, finishing by driving out the bus lot entrance. Students and families will hear their student’s name announced. We are asking each vehicle to have a name placard with the students’ first and last name displayed on the right side of the window (on the passenger window). Name placards must be visible, legible and in large print to be easily read from the outside of the vehicle. Students will pick up awards, certificates, yearbooks and pictures towards the end of the parade route followed by exiting the parade.

Friday, June 5th - 8th Grade Virtual Party (6:00 pm - 8:00 pm)
In lieu of our annual 8th Grade semi-formal dance, we will have a virtual party with a DJ.  There will be more information to come about this event.
