I was curious where I could view/see Rogers High School yearbooks (specifically the graduating class photos) for the years 1955, 1956, and 1957. I used the "schools" drop-down provided to search Roger's database but was unable to locate the graduating class photos by year. Any help or links would be appreciated! Thank you!
I was told to contact your office to see if it might be possible to rent a lunch room or something similar at one of your schools for a fundraiser. My husband has a rare brain tumor and someone had suggested a spaghetti feed. Would you happen to have a place that we might be able to rent, I’m guessing for no more than 70-100 people (high estimate) with access to a kitchen?
Thank you very much,
What is the policy on turning in homework late for;
1) If you are absent and turn it in the next day, or
2) Turn it in late while in attendance.
My child was excused and turned in her homework when she returned.
She was given a maximum score of 70% since it was late, even though she was excused.
If this is not policy, I plan on taking further action and making it public.
KHQ has agreed already to a story.
I attended Marshal Elementary School. We were an Air Force Family from Gieger AFB in 1956-8. It was the most wonderful school. I went into teaching because of Mrs. Alf and Mrs. Hair. I am looking for Mrs. Alf's full name. She is very well no longer alive. I cannot find Marshal Elementary School on the internet. The Principal was Mr. Foy. Can you assist me? I want to dedicate my Little Library , as the maker will include a dedication plaque, to Mrs. Alf but would like her full name, if possible. Thank you for any help you could give me!

What is the job of a Reading Interventionist, when is a child recommended to see one and how does a child qualify? What would be the difference between an IEP student being helped with reading in the resource room compared to going to a Reading Interventionist?
What does a Content Specialist do?
I would like to know 2 things.
- Is the money allocated for teachers raises by the state a one time thing or is it an annual on going amount.
- If the money is not on going how does the school district plan on sustaining the raises given in the future.
I have not seen anything that deals with these questions.
I have heard that the 5th graders this year will not have an option of band/strings. My 5th grader is so excited to start band, this would be very tragic. Music/fine arts is such an important part in every young child's life, it would be a tragedy to deny our students this experience. Can you please confirm?
Why do teachers feel they are justified in demanding a double digit pay raise? The military on gets a 2.5% raise. The military works everyday of the year and are frequently separated from their families. The military does not get union representation and they complain a lot less about their work conditions.
Hello, I have a new kindergartner who is really excited to start school this year. Our neighborhood school is Linwood, however, his child care provider who watches all three of my kids also has a new kindergartener of her own going to Madison and a middle schooler going to Salk. I've tried to choice him into Madison for convinence for the provider with very little success. What if I cant get my little guy into Madison? Is there before/after school options so no one will be late or god forbid standing alone after school?
Hello Spokane Public Schools Staff, thanks for your help earlier this year. I'm now looking for any information you might have about a school called The New School - Experiential Learning Community, which was listed in some 1970's Spokane City Directories at 203 E. Sharp Avenue. I think I attended it briefly during the 1975-1976 school year. Have a good day. Samantha
Hi, I'm going into 9th grade at Ferris and am registered for Honors English, but I cannot find the summer assignment for 9th grade. It's not on the website, only AP English Literature and Sophmore Honors. Help please. I've called the office and only get a voicemail even though they are open.
So I want to remain anonymous. I want to know why in the H&*l my 6 year old daughter is being taught about drugs in kindergarten. She brought a book home "its one of the paper booklets they read in class" its about dogs and what they can do, one sentence in there says dogs can find and sniff out drugs. So know I have to either tell her what they are at 6 years old or skip the word. I am absolutley appalled that this sentence is even in the book. kids should not know about sex or drugs until at least middle school. I had no clue what drugs were until the STUPID Dare program told me about them. Teaching kids this early is a complete disgrace to public schooling everywhere. Please have this removed so we can have a real generation kids that will help change this world instead of continuing to abuse it. Thank You
I would like to know, as a long time member of the Browne community why a principal is aloud to put out of control behavioral students above the safety and well being of staff and other students? And why are the good families being forced out when it seems that a change in administration would solve a lot of problems?
What are the consequences of the individual who made the Snapchat threat at Salk Middle school? I feel it's not being taken seriously. I also never received a call informing me. For the news to say it's not credible makes it sound like the district is sweeping it under the rug. I don't care if the kid said he was kidding or not. These kids are middle school age, definitely old enough to know right from wrong. There should be NO leeway. I don't want to send my kid back for the last week because I have no idea what is being done about the kid who threatened. Is he still going there? Is he at home, oh hey, perhaps his parents both work and he's home alone. Who's to say he won't just walk over to the school and start shooting it up. The kid should face legal consequences and all the students parents should be fully informed on the matter. Again, I Never received a call from the school. I found out from the news. Very disappointing!
I have a question.. My daughter is going to be an incoming freshman at Ferris and takes medication at school (usually around lunch time). Is there any idea when the schedules might be at least drafted? Her appointment with her doctor is at the end of July/beginning of August and I'm trying to be proactive in getting her medication form filled out... it's not a good situation if she doesn't have that 2nd dose in the afternoon.
If they won't be available until later, when does the office reopen for me to bring the form and medication in?
