Things are happening at Reidenbaugh!!

Hello RES Families!

Our fist Reidenbaugh PTO meeting went very well and we would like to thank everyone for coming, either to express an opinion or just to listen and figure out what our school is all about. We had a lot of laughs and got many things accomplished. Minutes are posted on this site, under the "About Us" tab. Best part of the week was picture day, as always! We love to see all those children looking so neat and nice. Parents, our volunteers did their best to make sure your child had no hair sticking out and no crooked shirt collar. We hope we did well!

Quick reminders with details below: Our directory registration is open! Make sure you sign up because we are not able to supply students' information later in the year to those families who did not register. X2 Fall is looking for coaches. Trust me, you will have as much fun as the kids by being a coach! Have you ordered your Spirit Wear yet? There's still time! We are still searching for volunteers (yes, more than one!) to help out with the newsletter communication.

ROOM PARENT: If you were selected to be a room parent please note there is a change in the room parent meeting date. Should you be selected as a room parent the meeting that was previously scheduled for Friday, Sept 14 at 9:30am will now be Monday, Sept 17 at 9:30am in Room 104.

MINI-THON: This was talked about at the PTO meeting and it's an amazing opportunity for all of us to be a part of this wonderful cause. The first introductory meeting for the Four Diamonds mini-THON is Tuesday, Sept. 18 at 7:00PM in Room 104. Our program liaison will be there to give an overview of what mini-THON and how it helps our community. It's story is beautiful and it will be read to your children. Come find out about our many committees and see if you can help out in one of them. The theme is Pirates of the Curibbean! By the way, November 16 we will have pajama day district wide for Mini-Thon! For more information please contact Debbie Keys at or Rebecca Stanion at

SCHOOL PLAY: We are excited to announce that Mrs. Parker will be directing Annie Jr.!! If your child is interested in being a part of this play, there is a mandatory parent meeting on Wednesday, September 19, at 6:30 PM at Reidenbaugh Elementary. This is a parents only meeting but is required for any family interested in participating in the play.

BINGO NIGHT: Our Back to School Bingo Night is this Thursday, September 20! Yeah!! It starts at 6:00pm and goes until 7:30pm. If you have never been to one of our Bingo Nights, you have to come to this one. It's great!! You will get to meet other parents, find out who your child's new friends are and get a chance to win some fun prizes. You should have received the flyer to purchase your bingo cards. Please contact Heatherann Paul (717) 725-7508 if you can help out for 30 minutes or if you have any questions.

SPIRIT WEAR: The flyer was sent home at the beginning of the school year and orders are due on Friday, September 28. We have started Spirit Wear sale early this year to make sure that if you order now you have all your orders delivered by Spirit Day which is next month. By the way, Large, Medium, and Small adult sweatshirts are available. Don't wait! Order now! Click here for the flyer.

DIRECTORY: You probably got the flyer sent home this week. The directory 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. Make sure you sign up because we are not able to supply students' information later in the year to those families who did not register for the 2018-2019 Directory. To register in the student directory just go to our website and click on the big red apple we inserted on the HOME page to make it easy for you. If you have more than one child, you will need to enter them separately. Sorry, we are not that tech savvy.

X2F FALL 2018 SESSON: Xcel2Fitness Team Reidenbaugh is in search of coaches!!! X2F is teaching 3rd - 5th grade boys the importance of grit, goal-setting, team work & being a Dream Chaser through athletics, strength & conditioning & cardio. Join us at Registration starts next week. If interested in coaching contact Bill Caloviras at

PTO BOARD MEMBERS: We are in need of volunteers to help with the weekly eblast. This is the main channel of contact between Reidenbagh PTO and Reidenbaugh families.
