Rogers-Herr Middle School


We need volunteers! I know we're all busy thinking about school starting virtually, but our most vulnerable kids need our help now. DPS Volunteer Medical Corps is a group working to get medical volunteers into each DPS school once school reopens in 9 weeks. We need volunteers right now, though. For those children most at risk, DPS and community partners are starting DPS Learning Centers to provide a safe place for our most at-risk children to do their virtual learning. These Learning Centers will begin as soon as August 24. We need folks with and without medical expertise to help. Please go to for more information. Email [email protected] or reach out to me if you have questions!

Hey Rogers Herr Family- hopefully you all received an email with information about donating to help with 8th grade graduation supplies and also end of the year teacher gifts. Please donate if you can :)

I can’t describe the pride and joy I have in my heart right now for the Rogers-Herr Middle school softball team. They finished the season 9-3 this year. I’ve been a volunteer assistant coach for the last 3 years. The first year we didn’t make the playoffs or even get close to making playoffs. Last year we missed it by one game. This year we made and finished 3rd. I have coached some of the girls for 3 years and some for only 1 or 2 but they have all the heart in the world. They enjoyed playing the game win or lose. The joy I have gotten coaching them has been absolutely amazing. To be able to teach them things I have learned in my many years of playing this sport and watching them improve day to day, week to week and year to year has been so fulfilling. I could not be more proud of these girls and wish them all the best in their future endeavors. They will do great in life and be some great softball players. It was my honor to coach them. Even though my life has taken me to another place, I will forever remember my time coaching these lovely girls. Go do great things ladies! Rogers-Herr Lady Rams go do great things.
We're planting trees at Rogers-Herr this Saturday 3/16 from 2:00-4:00! Please come help make our school healthier and more beautiful!
Every day wake up with kindness in your heart and go to bed with gratitude

Hi RMS parents! We are new to year-round and are starting to think about the fall break. Does DPS host any track out camps for 6th graders or do any other families have suggestions of Durham track out camps they love? I hope everyone is having a great year!

Teamwork makes the dream work, and RHMS Volleyball is proof of that. Not only do they dominate on the court, but they also excel in making a positive impact in the community through their community service project at Seeds. RHMS Volleyball truly rocks both on and off the court!
