Rogers Early Elementary School


Dear Parents and Guardians,

I would like to welcome you and your child to Rogers Early Elementary School.  This will be an exciting year filled with many new learning opportunities for your child.  We are very excited to be a part of your child’s beginning education. Learning at this age is a wonderful and exciting process! 

I would like to take a moment to share my background with you.  I have been employed with the Melvindale-Northern Allen Park School District for nineteen years.  I have taught 5th grade and Reading Recovery. In addition to these classroom experiences, I had the opportunity to fulfill the position of Assistant Principal at Allendale Elementary and have been Principal at Rogers for the past ten years.

Rogers’ staff is comprised of dedicated staff members who are committed to providing the best education for your child in a safe and kid friendly environment.  We encourage you to join us by being a partner of our Rogers Fun Force/PTO, attending our many wonderful after school events and special workshops that may be held throughout the year, and by volunteering in the classrooms. I look forward to working with everyone this school year!



Mrs. Lisa Tafelski
