Thanksgiving Food Drive

Did you hear the news? Student Council is sponsoring their annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. Please bring in non-perishable food items and paper products to help families in need here in Newtown. I am thankful for all that I have, but it is important to help those less fortunate. The cluster that collects the most non-perishable food items will get to decide January's spirit day.

International Education Week

Newtown Public Schools are participating in International Education week this week. Each day you will hear an interesting fun fact about a different nation. We invite all Reed students to wear an International Jersey or ethnic clothing this Thursday, November 16th to celebrate International Education Week.

Tag Activities

TAG Activities days are here! Reed Students will be participating in TAG (teaming across grades) activities. Students had the opportunity to sign up for an activity that they are interested in earlier this month. They will join with other students and adults on Nov. 1st and 17th to participate in our fall TAG activities. Students will be told by their teacher which activity they signed up for and given a permission slip if they NEED it. If your child signed up for an activity that takes them off campus (such as walking club), they will be bringing home a permission slip. Most activities take place in the building so a permission slip is not necessary. All activities will take place rain or shine, so dress appropriately. Looking forward to our TAG days!
