Greeting Reidenbaugh Families!
Welcome month of May! Kids are getting excited for the end of this school year. There are a lot of fun days ahead of us. We have it all written down for you here. A big thanks go to all those who came to our last PTO meeting of the 2017-2018 school year. We had great discussions and good ideas! Thank you to the absolutely wonderful parents who accepted to head one of our committees. We really can't do this without you! Hershey Park tickets generated $1000 for our school. Thank you all for the purchases. Mrs. Smith mentioned all the new things for next year, like the 6 days schedule. Library will be back full time also. We learned about the ALICE training which will be rolled out in August. Our faculty is very excited about next year and so are we!
