Dear Rohwer Families,

On behalf of the entire PTO board, welcome to our 2020-2021 school year! I hope that all of our new and returning Rocket families are ready for another incredible year together! For those of you who don’t know, we are a volunteer organization made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff.  Our PTO works hard to help make each school year the best for our students and staff.


Time, treasure or talent – weve all got something to give! The Rohwer PTO sponsors many activities and events throughout the school year like Turkey Bingo, dancing classrooms, holiday parties, staff luncheons, fields trips, and so much more.  These experiences are only possible because of our incredible parent volunteers. We look forward to working with all parents - no matter how much time you have to spare! Many tasks can even be done from the comforts of your own home.  The easiest way to get involved is to fill out the PTO volunteer form here.  Every extra hand helps!


Our PTO meets every other month on Thursday evening to discuss events, share committee updates, and ideas.  Our meetings are a wonderful way to find out what is happening at our school from the PTOs perspective, a terrific way for parents to get involved, and an opportunity to meet other parents.  We have some exciting events planned for this school year, so be sure to check out the PTO calendar.


Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook @  Thanks in advance for your support and help this school year!

PTO Presidents
Courtney Saylan


Welcome, Rohwer Families! My name is Courtneay Saylan. I am so excited for the opportunity this year to help lead the Rohwer PTO with Jenna. Our family moved to Omaha about 7 years ago and never looked back. We have three children.  Abigael will be in 2nd grade, and Fletcher will be in 1st grade this year.  Our youngest will be attending pre-k at Reagan Elementary and is very excited to finally go to a “big kid” school. I have truly valued my time on our PTO so far. It has helped me learn more about the school, build relationships with the staff, and form many new friendships along the way. You are going to love our Rohwer community! Feel free to email me with any comments, questions, or concerns. I hope to see you at our next Rohwer event or meeting!
