Welcome to Reed
Dear Parents, Guardians, Teachers and Staff,
Our Book Fair and ice cream social is here to kick off the month of February. Your gift of time or donations is truly appreciated. You can also support the PTA event by attending. Tuesday, February 4th the ice cream social will be open for everyone from 5-7pm. We hope to see you there. Thank you to all family members and staff who are supporting the event.
We have said our goodbyes to Mrs. Aurora Arroyo as she completed her last day of work in January. Mrs. Arroyo has been a wonderful member of our community and Reed family. We truly appreciate her taking on a long-term sub position in the absence of Mrs. Rise. Mrs. Robyn Rise is now back and she is excited to finish off the school year.
The Rainbow looms are becoming very popular at Reed. The following are a few reminders for our students: looms are allowed during lunch/recess only, students must carry their kit or container in a secure bag at all times, students may only make looms in front of C3/C4 and E3/E4 and looms cannot be traded or played with during instruction. We encourage students to share and to create a kind, caring environment with other students.
I am once again reaching out to our community to please observe our parking lot policy. The front and side parking lots are for staff use only. If you have a parking permit please make sure to place it where it is visible for our yard duty to see. Only vehicles with handicap placards are allowed to park in the side parking lot.
February is a very short month and winter break is around the corner. The dates are listed on our district and school website, so please make sure that you enjoy this wonderful time with your family. Let us also remind our students to stay focused and to keep demonstrating the great qualities of a Reed Rockstar!
