Heather Rogers is a special education teacher at John Hancock Charter School in Pleasant Grove. She was selected as the Daily Herald's Utah Valley Educator of the Week.
Does your school have a Wonder Woman? John Hancock believes they do. She's known to their school as Mrs. Heather Rogers. Rogers is the school's special education teacher, reading specialist and math teacher. She is also a grant writer, a savvy shopper always looking for a deal and even a dance teacher.
Not only can she do it all, she also does it all well. Her students love her, and she loves her students. According to the staff, they consider themselves lucky to have such an amazing educator, or Wonder Woman, at the school.

Teacher Appreciation Week - May 2-6
Dear JHCS Parents,
This coming week, May 2nd - 6th is Teacher Appreciation Week. On Thursday May 5th we are inviting parents to do something for their child's teacher. In some cases, room moms may be coordinating gift giving, and for some grades there was the option of donating toward tuition for a teacher conference. If you donated toward the conference, a card will be given to your teacher letting them know that you contributed toward this gift. If you have not been contacted by a room mom about a group gift, or by the PTO about the conference, then your classroom will be doing something for your teacher on an individual basis.
To help parents know what would be most useful to the teachers, the PTO asked them to create Amazon wishlists. Some of the teachers have created wishlists that you are welcome to use these to get ideas of what gifts to give. Items on the wishlist do not need to be purchased through Amazon, we are just using the site to make the list accessible to everyone. Hopefully this will be useful to both the parents and teachers.

Thank you for all of you who help make JHCS a great school for our students! We are currently in need of some volunteers to help us put on some events and help with other needs at the school. Please take special note the requests with stars. These events can only happen if we have your volunteer support. Please sign up on VolunteerSpot or contact Christine George at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
Reminder: You must have your volunteer hours completed in order to receive sibling preference for admission in the fall. This is important for all upcoming kindergarten students. Call the school if you need help reaching your volunteer hours.

Thank you in advance for your support!
We are proud of all of our students, parents and teachers who worked so hard throughout the year. Though standardized assessments are not the only measure of a successful school, they do provide a snap shot of student learning.
