Spring Festival Time

Greetings Hopper Families!

Two weeks left of school and we can feel the excitement in the air. Some of us are also feeling melancholic as the youngest child is moving to Landis Run Intermediate. The school is such a huge part of our lives because that's where our children spend most of their time. However, there's something about the Reidenbaugh energy that is hard to find. It's the teachers, the staff, the families... That's what makes older kids come back to help at Bingo Night, parents of children who attended Reidenbaugh past years come back to visit during big events and even donate. Yes, that's correct, donate to our many events. Thank you all for being a part of this wonderful Reidenbaugh Family!!

Today is Memorial Day. Our thanks to all those who served.

SPRING FESTIVAL: Carnival is coming to Reidenbaugh! This Friday, June 1st from 5:00 to 8:00pm. Volunteers are needed for the day of the event. Each class is responsible for providing seven (7) volunteers. Click here for sign up page.

DONATION: Lancaster schools are in need of kids bathing suits boys and girls size 5/6 and up. They are especially in need of size 8 for boys and size 13 for girls. They have a special pool day next week. Please send them to school in a bag marked “pool day donation” by Wednesday, May 30. Thank you!!

STEP UP: On the morning of Thursday, June 7, students in all grade levels at Reidenbaugh will participate in Step Up Day. Each class will go to a classroom in the grade level above them and will rotate among the rooms. They will do a short activity with the teachers and have some time to ask questions about next year and learn information about what to expect in the coming year. Fourth graders will go back to Kindergarten and have some fun with their former teachers! We hope this will alleviate any anxiety for students about what to expect the following year, as well as give the teachers a chance to meet the upcoming students.

BATHROOM MAKEOVER: Jen Boyer is heading up a cool project at Reidenbaugh Elementary this summer, mid-late June. We will be giving 1 boys and 1 girls bathroom a make over with encouraging and supportive quotes. But she can't do it by herself! She is looking for some volunteers and various items to borrow. Thanks!!

- Volunteers (parents, kids, boys, girls)

- HS/College Art student or crafty person (for pictures & fonts like below - will be able to provide community service letter)

- stencils of inspirational words or quotes, images like flowers, butterflies, sports


FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT: On Wednesday, July 18 we have limited seatings for the movie Hotel Transylvania 3. Just because it's summer doesn't mean Reidenbaugh can't hang out together!!
