September 1. Included in the school system are the high and junior high school, and 10 elementary schools, the Central Ward, Southside and Sunnysidi Ward schools located in the city; grade'' schools at Garfield, Lowell, Avoca, Cottage Hill, Hocky Branch, Shady Grove and Coal Gap, north, east, south and west of Rogers, encompassing an area of 257 square miles. is the new auditorium on the high school campus. The largest-in the county, it is not only the center of all school activities, but serves the entire area for public meetings. Here.arc staged all indoor athletics. Members.of the Faculty The slory of the liogcrs schools would not be complete without mention of several of the teachers who have remained on the school faculty through the lean years. Standing first on the list of those Supervised Forming Program Offered; Four Major Phases Included In Instruction The school census taken in 1950J who have served more than four The primary aim of vocational education In agriculture is to train present and prospective farmers for proficiency in farming. The controlling purpose of the natlon- . al vocational education acts makes | It mandatory that tho agricultural | e-'uration program be vocational in character if It is to be aided by federal funds, appropriated under the provisions of these acts. There are four major phases ot activities commonly included as an integral part of the instruc- gavc the number of school age children at 2,503. The assessed valuation of the property owned by the school district, No. 30, is estimated by the school board at $5,116,110.00. The faculty includes 78 instructors and superintendent. Seventeen school buses are required to transport the 1,072 students to and from school, at an average cost of ?22.15, which is 29 cents below average. Rogers High School is an accredited school in the North Central Association. A graduate from the school is eligible to attend any college or university in the association, which covers 18 states. Last year there were 112 enrolled in the senior class, the largest in the history of the school. This year is expected to equal or exceed that number. Of the seniors a number are from fami- ies who have recently moved to Rogers, or to the rural communi- ,ics included in the Rogers dis- rict. The enrollment in both the high and elementary schools represent a wide range of states. During the last two years, three young men, exchange students from Germany, were graduated from the high school. Both the exchange students and the local high school students were believed to have gained much by this contact. As in other schools in the state the luncheon program, in which the Rogers schools were among the first to participate, has reached a high plane of efficiency. This is due partly to the Parent- Teacher Association which is said to be the "workingest" organization in the community. Twice in the past three years have the district chairmen been members of the Rogers PTA. Each of the two chairmen attended the National Congress of Parent-Teacher Association. Each brought back new ideas which have been tried out. Through funds raised by the as- who will begin her 46th year it decades, is Mrs. Garnett Curry the grade schools, and Miss Florence Robinson, who has served 3f years first as a grade teacher and now has classes in both junior high and high schools. Mrs. Alice Tuel, now principal of the Southside school has served 30 years Mrs. W. F. Worthington has taught English and other subjects between 20 and 25 years, as has L. i G. Andrews, an American history instructor. There are at least a dozen teachers who may qualify in the 1(1- ycar tenure. Two of the teachers who have made history for the Rogers schools, are Mrs. Estella Puckett, who is given credit fo having organized the high school in Rogers in 1906. and A. W. Bpvcrs. who became its first principal in J90!l. Both teachers left Ihc rchool and taught in other schools, and both returned in recent years to climax their teaching careers in the Honors school .system, having lost none of their loyalty to their home town. The old ston3 stops in front of the high school building, worn out by the tramp of many feet during the past 40 years, are being replaced by "solid concrete as the last word in the improvement program. The steps will be ready by the opening of the 1952-53 school term. The hnuseiiy is found almost everywhere man has establishes himseJi.

Departmental Work Interest in the art department is noted in the entry of student work in state contests where several have made creditable showings, Last year students in vocational agriculture brought home a number of awards in meat and poultry judging contests. Their instructor has mapped out a program that is expected to create high interest in vocational avocations tho doming ttrm. The Commercial Department, headed by a tearher with more than 20 years experience, will earry on Its work of training boys and girls for business careers. Athletics Athletics has attained its highest point in 20 years, and the outlook is bright for another year to equal the record made last year by the Mountaineers and the girls' basketball teams. Lettermen and their coaches be- : gan in August to practice for the I" 1952 football season. While not included officially in the Rogers school system, an organization composed of Rogers business men and women known as the Quarterback Club has alreadv begun its program for assisting the Mountaineers. Its sole purpose will be to boost the club and create a greater interest in school athletics. The Blue Demon Club, which ! has functioned long and well, will probably have a larger membership to root for the home team this year. The Rogers High School senior band has an enrollment of about 60 members. There will be almost that, many in the junior band. Both have been practicing during the summer months in preparation for the regular school work, and for the first game earlv In September between the Mountaineers and Rcnfonvillo Timers.
