  • Rohrerstown 3R Students

    Posted by Kathy Swantner on 12/7/2023 4:45:00 PM

    On Thursday, we held our December Mini Meets to recognize students who exemplified the 3Rs. These students demonstrated many positive characteristics as well as exemplified being respectful, responsible, and always being ready for their classes. At the Mini Meets, we also recognized several staff members. Thank you to the parents/guardians who filled out the slips in the office and/or sent in an email to recognize the awesome staff at Rohrerstown. Several students also completed staff recognition slips, which is a great way for students to express their appreciation for ALL Rohrerstown staff.

    Congratulations to the many students who were recognized at the Mini Meets!
