Field Day and Bus Driver Day

Hello Hopper Families!

We are done with PSSAs!! The students did a fantastic job and now we can all relax. And relax we will as we are counting the days to the end of school because they month of May starts this week. Yes, we already in the 4th marking period and many classes are wrapping up on the new lessons for the year to just review and reinforce what they have already learned. We truly appreciate all the support we have had from the parents' side. We hope you realize that you are a part of this community, you are a part of this PTO. What we do for our school and our kids, we do together. Here is a little "seed" for next year: if you could do something for your child at the elementary school year, what would that be? Can you create a memory that will last a lifetime? Your child won't forget Reidenbaugh Elementary, so how can you be a part of that memory? Field Day? Room parent? Spring fest? Movie nights? Yearbook? Maybe just coming to the events, such as Bingo, with your kid. Think of a "new school year resolution" and be part of this amazing community.

Here are two big things going on this week, Field Day and School Bus Driver Day. Field Day is posted below. Come help out and enjoy seeing your child with his classroom friends having a ball! Sign up links are listed below. School Bus Driver Day is May 2. Take a moment and do something for that driver who usually is a stranger to you but very present in your child's life. They interact wit our kids, drive them to and from school every day and keep them safe.

LANDIS RUN MEETING: Thank you to all who attended the Landis Run PTO meeting last week. We try to keep parents involved as much as possible as our kids transition to the intermediate school. If you have any questions please send an email to

PTO MEETING: Our last PTO meeting of the year is this Tuesday, the 1st of 7:00pm. We will have food for you so you don't have to worry about your dinner. Come wrap up the year with us. We truly hope you and your family were taken care of at Reidenbaugh. Come say hi and bye! We want to know who you are and what we can do better next year.
