RHS graduates return to PSD

Rogers High School recently hosted the return of several graduates who spoke with current high school students in AVID classrooms. PSD videographer Andy Lynch was there to capture some of the thoughts and words of wisdom.

This video is the first of several in a series you will see over the next couple of weeks.

Students rise early to learn musical instruments

More than 1,150 fifth and sixth grades students have elected to wake up early on school days and travel to their local junior highs to participate in band or orchestra.

PSD writer and photographer Nancy French visited one class to learn more about these classes.

Students across the district are beginning to perform publicly in regional concerts.

Revised school calendar

Because of the power outages and heating problems on January 7, school was canceled. As a result, students will attend school on Tuesday, May 28. This date was set aside as a "make up day" in the event classes were canceled.

End of first semester has also been adjusted on the revised calendar.
