Howdy Reidenbaugh Families!
It was great to see everybody at the Back to School Night. Did you visit your child's classroom? Lots of new information. By the way, I have heard wonderful things about the morning meetings! Also, the replacement of the Reidenbaugh Pledge with Reidenbaugh C.A.R.E.S. will be easier for all our students to follow. We are all looking forward to a wonderful year!
Our PTO secretary, Yanna Nachtigall, spoke very quickly regarding what our PTO is about. There's a lot we do with/for the community, the school and the students. You can check out some of our annual programs here. We have this website where you can come back to check on events and all the newsletters, as well as meeting minutes and gallery (more on that later throughout the year). We also have a facebook page with last minute notices. Our email is email@example.com, in case you have a question or comment.
These "Elementary" years go by fast and our kiddos are changing even faster. Our PTO events are an great opportunity to be involved with your child's school and to be an example of collaboration within a community. Keep your eyes and ears open for these fun occasions. If you have something to say, to share, to ask or if you just want to meet other parents whose kids are at Reidenbaugh, come to our PTO meeting this Wednesday, September 12 at 7:00pm at Reidenbaugh Elementary.
DIRECTORY: Reidenbaugh Student Directory Registration is open! This is a great way to have contact information for the students in your child's classroom and grade. Our goal is to get this directory to you by the end of October. Only the families who sign up for the Reidenbaugh 2018-2019 Student Directory will receive a copy of the directory. To register in the student directory just go to our website ReidPTO.com and hover over the menu tab JOIN and click on Directory. If you have more than one child, you will need to enter them separately. Sorry, we are not that tech savvy.
