Inter-District Permits

About 300 incoming 6th graders transition from three elementary feeder schools into Will Rogers each year.  The counselors work hard to assist students and families with this transition.  This transition process begins while students attend their fifth grade year in the elementary school.  The counselors collaborate with fifth grade teachers to learn about each student so an appropriate schedule of classes can be assigned for 6th grade. 

WEB Welcome


Rogers Parent Tours

During the Spring, JAMS invites parents to tour the campus and experience our campus.  Parents have the opportunity to see our renowned JAMS band, art, and computer classes. They see as our students engage in their core instruction and have an opportunity to ask questions to our administration and counselors.

Rogers Student Tours & Scavenger Hunt

At the end of their 5th grade year,  students take a walking field trip to Addams where the counselors coordinate a scavenger hunt aimed at orienting students to their new school for the fall. If the feeder school needs chaperones, parents are welcomed to support the field trip.

Incoming 6th Graders Parent Night 

Parents are invited to learn about Rogers' programs and structure, and the transition to middle school. All incoming 6th grade families are encouraged to attend.  Our counselors and principals will be present to answer any questions and share important details about our middle school. Translation will be provided. 

WEB: Where Everybody Belongs

We are so excited to have the WEB Program at Rogers! WEB, which stands for “Where Everybody Belongs” is a middle school transition program that welcomes 6th graders and makes them feel comfortable throughout their first year of middle school. The WEB team is a group of 7th and 8th grade students that are trained to be WEB Leaders. These WEB Leaders act as positive role models, and mentors who guide 6th graders to discover what it takes to be successful in middle school. Each WEB leader becomes responsible for a small group of 6th graders during Orientation Day, and they continue to follow up with them throughout the year with activities.

WEB begins with a fun and energetic

Orientation Day/Tour in August

On Orientation Day,  the incoming 6th graders will participate in  large and small group activities designed to address students’ needs and concerns in an enjoyable manner. Students will have fun learning strategies that will contribute to their middle school success. At the end of Orientation Day, students will get the opportunity to get a personalized tour from their WEB Leaders
