Endorsement Showcase for 8th grade moving to 9th grade

On Thursday, January 24th all Rogers 8th grade students will be attending an Endorsement Showcase at Prosper High School during the school day. The goal for the showcase is to inform our students on the pathways offered in high school. The students will tour the building and see the facilities of different elective programs.

8th to 9th grade Parent Meetings

This is such an exciting time as your 8th grader plans for his/her high school options. The Prosper secondary counselors are honored to be a part of this process. We want to make sure our parents and students are aware of all the exciting options available to them during high school. On January 30 and 31, Prosper High School counselors will have parent/student meetings during your child’s Science class. During the meeting they will:

  • discuss endorsements.
  • discuss course selections for 9th grade.
  • discuss 4-Year Plans.
  • answer questions.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule meeting times. We will post all meeting information on the Rogers’ and PHS website for you to review. If you are unable to attend, we will mail home your child’s information for you to review, sign, and return to Rogers. Please look for an email that would have come from your child’s Science teacher. You will find more information about this parent meeting and the Google form that was sent out by the Science teachers.

We look forward to working with you and your child.
