Hello Reidenbaugh families!
Fun, fun, fun week! All grades had a wonderful last week of October. For the families who registered in the directory, it's ready. If you didn't receive yours last week you will get it this week. Don't forget we have our Reidenbaugh Food Drive starting this Monday. As we enter the last couple months of the year, Reidenbaugh and the PTO have many things coming your way. Shall we take a look?
BOO TO THE FLU: Flu season has started and we have here tips to keep your family healthy and a guideline for bringing your child to school after a cold or a flu. Click here for the flyer. Let's stay healthy and say Boo to the Flu this Fall.
LIBRARY: People, please send in those plastic bags! These bags are given to the students to protect our library books when they carry it home. We need an brand of the Slider Jumbo Storage Bags 2.5 Gallon. Just send a box to school with your child or drop it off at the office. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Winters at email@example.com. Thank you!!
FOOD DRIVE: It starts this week! Please don't forget to send your item in to the school between November 5 and 9. Each classroom will make a basket to donate to families in the community.
