Blue Whale Challenge

It has recently been brought to our attention that a "game" called "The Blue Whale Challenge" has been circulating on the internet. This game is reportedly an escalating series of "challenges," some of which involve self harm. The last challenge is committing suicide.

We have no reports of this being played in Prosper, and there are differing reports of whether or not the game is actually real. Nevertheless, we felt it prudent to make our community aware of it. Click here to read an article about the game.

CPR in Schools


Prosper ISD would like to thank the American Heart Association for providing a CPR in schools kit to the district through a generous donation by Connor Kenne's family. This kit will help train students in Prosper ISD how to perform hands-only CPR, which could help save a life.

According to the American Heart Association, 90% of people who suffer out of hospital cardiac arrests die, but CPR performed immediately can double or triple the victims chance of survival.

Rogers' Students Give Back to the Community


Students from Rogers Middle School gave back this week to the community through their 8th Grade Day of Service. The students had the opportunity to sign up for 1 of 10 locations that they wanted to help during the Day of Service. These locations included several of our elementary campuses, Erwin Park, Myers Park, ManeGait, GraceBridge Food Bank, and Pioneer Ridge Retirement Center. Not only did the students enjoy helping out in the community, the community enjoyed having their help. The service project was a perfect way to live out the Graduate Profile by experiencing the satisfaction of giving and service to others.
