Greetings Reidenbaugh Families!
What a fun week we had!! Did your child make one of those Valentine's boxes? I believe it's for 3rd and 4th graders. So creative! What about a Valentine's classroom party? The kids love those parties! We also hope you enjoyed this long weekend with your children maybe even had a quick snowball fight! Hold your little ones close and enjoy the moment. Life is made of moments! We are half way through the school year and before we know it, summer vacation will be upon us. On a more serious note, we want to encourage you to go to one of the district meeting about classroom iPads or technology. If you are considering giving your child a cell phone in the near future, please make sure you attend one of these meetings. It's an eye opener of what's going on with pre-teens out there. These professionals are doing the ground work of researching new technology, how kids are using these technologies on their electronics and how to keep them safe, then sharing all these insights with us. Here is a link for you: http://www.iu13.org/events/all/keeping-kids-safe-symposium/
One last thing, the PTO meeting minutes for this school year is on our website, www.reidpto.com, under the tab ABOUT US. Now, shall we take look at what's on the agenda for this coming week?
TO ALL BUS RIDERS: Please remember that students should be out at the bus stop 10 minutes prior to the bus arriving. Drivers have mentioned that some students are waiting at their doors until they see the bus coming and then run to the stop. Several students have slipped and fallen in their rush. Please help us to keep your kids safe and be out at the stop 10 minutes early.
SNOW MAKE-UP: Remember that Monday, February 19 is Snow Make Up day and we will have a full day of school.
SHOE DRIVE: Reidenbaugh families, you are awesome! This is your last chance! You can still bring in those GENTLY used shoes until February 19. All kids of shoes and all sizes are welcome!!
BOX TOPS: Box Tops sheets have been distributed for the month of February. Collection date is this Wednesday, February 21. Did yo know you can turn in the Box Tops sheet incomplete? Yes you can!!

ISAAC'S FUNDRAISER DAY: This Thursday, February 22, take a break from cooking and purchase your lunch and dinner at Isaac's Restaurant. Make sure you tell them you are from Reidenbaugh and 25% of the checks come back to us.! It's good for take out or dine in. Tell your colleagues at work, other friends and family members.
