Student Values and Citizenship
The Roland Rogers Faculty and Staff believes that students should be equipped with the academic and social skills needed to be successful throughout the educational career and beyond.
We provide a supportive, caring environment where students are guided toward becoming confident and successful individuals. We place great emphasis on providing our students with extra-curricular programs and activities that are designed to build character and confidence.
Our value of the month, peer mediation, Anti-bullying, Anti-Violence and Vandalism Awareness programs are designed to teach respect, citizenship and self-confidence.
At Roland Rogers, we teach pride and encourage our students to practice the 4-Rs; Respect, Responsibility, Reach 100%, and Read!. We believe that a prideful student becomes a successful student.
We reward students for their academic and citizenship efforts through our STARR and Good Citizenship special recognition programs. These programs are just two of our character education programs that teach good citizenship and recognize students for their civic and academic successes!
