Thank you to everyone who helped honor our veterans this week! The program this morning for 5th and 6th grades and their invited veterans was very special! Approximately twenty-five veterans were in attendance. Honor Flight was presented with the cards and placemats the students have made and the flag that art class students made. Special thanks go to Mrs. Hill, Reid Music Teacher, and her choir for their wonderful selections. Mrs.Karr, Reid Art Teacher, and her students for the flag, cards, placemats, and veterans' nametags. We enjoyed special readings by 6th graders Clay and Silas and 5th grader Phoebe. Thank you to Mary Palmer from Home Road Nazarene Church for donating items for the goodies bags that veterans received. A huge thanks to Ms. Scott, Reid Counselor, and Mrs. Womacks, Reid Librarian who coordinated this fabulous event! Let us always remember the sacrifices that our veterans have made for our freedom!
On Wednesday, October 18th, Ms. Wickline and Mrs. Slusher held our first annual literacy night for first and second grade students. During the literacy night, students particpated in many activities including a book walk, orgainizing spooky sentences, making words, and enjoyed a read aloud. Each student was able to leave with a book to keep! Families were served dinner at the conclusion on the night. We look forward to holding this event every year!
Students at Reid School are continuing to collect items for victims of the Texas and Florida hurricanes. The following items are in need (please make sure ALL items are new):
We would also like to thank Kendra, a 4th grader, who in lieu of birthday gifts this year, she had her friends donate supplies for cats to help animals that were relocated or separated from their owners.
We will be collecting items until September 30th. Thank you for your support!
Today in Mrs. Binkley's class Aaren (AJ) Beedy brought in a very special treat for his class. AJ's father, Allen, had recently returned from a trip to Japan. He went on a special trip with the US NAVY. He returned September 2nd and brought back lots of goodies that can only be purchased in Japan. The class enjoyed giant cheese puffs and fruit flavored candies. Everyone truly enjoyed the story behind the treats as well as the treats themselves! He even sent in a translation sheet so that we would know what each of the wrappers was describing. Thank you to the Beedy family for sharing these small treasures with our class!
