Welcome to Reed Elementary School

A Proud California Distinguished School in SJUSD


Parent Bulletin: December

Dear Parents, Teachers and Staff,

As the holidays approach there are so many things going on in our lives – Christmas shopping, wrapping gifts, meals to prepare, cards to write and gatherings with our families and friends and more events that keep us very busy.

Against the hectic backdrop, we take time at Reed to remind ourselves of the real meaning of the holiday season. We reflect on the great memories and gifts that our community has given us over the past years. Our school community prepares for the holiday by hosting multiple events and celebrations.  Please continue to support our “Toys for Tots” and make a difference in the lives of children. Let us teach our children what it means to give and to be grateful. I also want to recognize a special parent group at Reed, our SELAC community. We thank you for starting a tradition that brings us all together as we light the tree of hope and love. Our Holiday Gift Shop creates excitement to our community as our students buy special gifts for their parents while sipping hot cocoa in the cafeteria.

Lastly, we end our month with a culmination of angelic voices during our Holiday Sing-a-long. It’s one of my favorite traditions here at Reed. It gives me great joy seeing our student’s sing, laugh and have fun.  I congratulate all of our parents for raising children who are compassionate and loving.  I thank our teachers and support staff for proving a strong foundation and guidance to these students. As we wrap up 2015 and welcome 2016, let us all pause and reflect on the wonderful things that we accomplished.  Together we will continue to believe that “all student’s can learn.”

May this holiday season bring you lots of joy and love all around.

Ms. Mendoza
