Reed's Game Drive

During the month of November we are looking for new and slightly used games that will stay inside every cluster where we can use them for indoor recess.

Any extra or duplicate games will be available for teachers who do not have them or are lacking in games.

If there are many extra games, they will be donated to the charity Life Haven in New Haven!

Advanced Honors Band

Advanced Honors Band is coming soon!

Do you want to play "The Best of Green day", "Shrek", or "Star Wars" ? 

Then Advanced Honors Band is for you.

All you need is a permission slip from Mr. Nolte or Mr. Beierle.

No audition is required.

All 5th Grade String Players

Extra help sessions are available every Thursday morning from 7:10 - 7:50.

Come on Down!

Reed Holiday Helpers

Reed Intermediate School will once again be helping Reed families in need during the upcoming holiday season! Throughout the first week in December (12/1-12/5), students will be asked to donate a minimum of $1 in order to wear a hat to school on Friday, December 5th. For each dollar a student donates, a raffle ticket will be given for a special drawing on December 5th. Please mark your calendars for this important event. It is a wonderful way for students to take part in giving back during the Holiday Season. Please discuss with your children ways they could earn money around the house by doing chores or helping in some way to earn money to donate and be a Reed Holiday Helper!

Many thanks to the PTA and Interact Club for helping with this event!!
