Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year. I hope that you are enjoying the summer months and fill it with fun and exciting memories with your loved ones. The Rodgers family is thrilled to welcome all of you back to a new school year of learning and growing. To those of you who are new to the J. Harvey Rodgers School, we extend a warm welcome and wish your child the best in the new school year.
Our beautiful Early Childhood Building has approximately 300 students and is rich with diversity. The Rodgers faculty works collaboratively to identify specific needs of our young learners and to develop learning experiences that ensure every student meets success. At the J. Harvey Rodgers School, we are also fortunate to have many exciting events for our families to enjoy throughout the school year, and hope that you will quickly feel at home.
The J. Harvey Rodgers School welcomes your involvement in the education of our children. We have a PTO, whose members would be happy to discuss the many opportunities available for you to become involved. Additionally, parents and community members are invited to join the Rodgers Parent Advisory Committee (RPAC), which will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to engage in conversation with administration about the programs and activities at our school. For more information on BPAC, please visit our website.
I am excited about kicking off the school year and I am looking forward to working closely with you to ensure that our children are safe, happy, and achieving at high levels. We embrace the challenges of the future while we continue to cherish and celebrate the traditions of the past. Our remarkable staff, involved parents, and committed students come together to make J. Harvey Rodgers a wonderful and unique place.
In an effort to help you get your child off to a fantastic start, our J. Harvey Rodgers Parent Handbook was prepared to provide you with the necessary information regarding our programming, along with some helpful hints. We will communicate important information via the School Messenger phone system throughout the year. It is extremely important that all contact information in Power School is up to date so that you receive all communication from the school district. Additional information about our school and district is also available via the Glassboro web site at www.gpsd.us.
If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please feel free to call or email at any time. Thank you for joining us as partners in the educational process, and I look forward to seeing you at our Back-to-School night on September 21, 2023.
