Happy Spring Break Hoppers families!
As many of us struggle with work, home and giving our time to help this wonderful school, it warms our hearts to know we actually make a difference on the students and teachers lives. I would like to share with you three wonderful "thank you" cards we received. You are a part of this!! For all those who helped out at the events this year please raise your hand up high. Now bend your elbows and pat yourselves on the back! The 30 minutes you volunteer, the monetary contribution you make, goes a long way and makes a difference. That's why we are such a wonderful community. Thank you volunteers for all you do!!
I want to thank the PTO for purchasing books for my classroom from the book fair! I greatly appreciate your generosity! My class is currently doing a unit of study on one of the books that was purchased last year. We want you to know they are used and appreciated!

Teacher appreciation week is coming. Please read below and support this fantastic group of teachers we have. Enjoy your school day off on Monday, April 22 and enjoy Spring!
PSSA: We have a week break for testing and then we start our last round. Please make sure you have the following dates written down.
Tuesday, April 30 - Fresh start! Wear WHITE to show that you are ready to make a clean start. Wednesday, May 1 - A Bit of Sunshine! Wear a YELLOW shirt to school. Yellow activates your mind & puts a smile on your face. Thursday, May 2 - Wear BLACK and get ready to tackle science!
Friday, May 3 - Wear a PURPLE shirt. You have conquered the PSSAs like a king or queen!
BARN HILL PRESERVE ASSEMBLY: This will be held on Wednesday, April 24th. Please make sure you send in with your child the signed permission slip that was sent home. Please contact your teacher if you do not have this form.
TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK: It is one of the best of the whole year at Reidenbaugh...it is when we can come together to spoil our teachers and staff, and show them how much we appreciate them for ALL they do! This year, we will be celebrating them with a "Fiesta" theme:
MONDAY, 5/6/19 - "Room Service" - we will deliver snacks and drinks of their choice to classrooms
WEDNESDAY, 5/8/19 - Luncheon - we plan to feed 75-80 people!
FRIDAY, 5/10/19 - Coffee and breakfast treats in the teachers' lounge in the morning upon their arrival to school We are seeking donations of food/drink items, gift cards, and also a few volunteers to help make the week a success. Maize will be catering the beef, chicken, and a vegetarian option for the taco bar at the luncheon. With so many other fresh, refrigerated items needed, you will also notice that we have a need for grocery gift cards/cash to purchase those items...this should make it easier for everyone, rather than worrying about refrigeration when sending items into school with your child!
*Please note the due dates for items,* and feel free to contact Kim Firestone at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns. Please click here for the Sign-Up Genius. Thank you so much for your generosity!
