Book Fair and More

Greeting RES Families,

Here is a quick recap of the things happening this coming week. Before we get to that though, we would like to send a big shout out to Adelina Panosso, Jen Boyer & Amy del Castillo for the amazing job with the Holiday Shop! Can't wait to hear it all at this week's PTO meeting! Also, huge Thank you to Roseanne Myers for Family Movie Night. Ladies, you all rock!! Thank you for being a part of the Reidenbaugh PTO! Now, let's see what this week (with the help of some other great PTO parents) brings!

PTO MEETING: Our December PTO Meeting is this Tuesday at 9:30am. Yes, you read correctly, 9:30am. If you are overwhelmed with after school activities (like most of us are!) this is your opportunity to meet us. Have questions? Comments? The PTO meeting is the perfect place to bring up ideas and give us feedback on how the kids are liking the PTO and school events. Bring your cup of coffee and curiosity. We will be waiting for you!

HOPPERVILLE BOOKSTORE: This Wednesday, December 5, we have our monthly Hopperville Bookstore. This is the perfect place for your child to choose his/her own books. We have gently used donated books for all elementary school reading level. Books cost start at 0.25 cents. We also have Reidenbaugh school supplies such as pencils and erasers. Remember, your child can donate books at any time throughout the year. The donation box is at the school main entrance. For every 4 items donated, your child earns 1 coupon worth 0.25 cents. Remember to place a paper with your child's name and homeroom in the bag with your donated items.


SCHOLASTIC WINTER BOOK FAIR: One night only Scholastic Winter Wonderland Book Fair is

coming to Reidenbaugh! On Tuesday, December 4 at Reidenbaugh from 6:00 to 7:30pm. We will have cookies and hot and cold chocolate available for purchase.
