Come find out about the Reeves PTA!

Our PTA is committed to providing informative, hands-on activities that cover topics our students are covering at school. At our September meeting, we explored STEM. The Science, Technology, Engineering and Math focus is a big part of middle school. Our meeting covered important topics like how we can support our staff and student AND we had fun!

  


Here are a few pictures from Tuesday night's STEM design challenge at the Reeves PTA meeting. Thanks to our Vice President, Anne Gallagher, for her work on it.

    

With only 5 general membership meetings this year, please mark your calendars for Tuesday, 11/29 at 6 pm and plan to join us. We're hoping to include more hands-on activities that will work our brains AND make us laugh.


Please consider joining us at one of our upcoming meetings:

November 29
January 24
March 28
May 30



Come meet your student's teachers at Curriculum night on 9/22 at 5:45 p.m.

Just a reminder that tomorrow night is Curriculum Night at RMS. The PTA will be raffling off a package of gift cards to local businesses including Spuds, Stormans (Thriftways), Lemongrass, Old School Pizza, Regal Cinemas, Pints and Quarts, Blush Day Spa, Cold Stone Creamery, Ballet Northwest Nutcracker tickets, and a Debbi's Dance, Etc. certificate for a class for a month. Raffle tickets will be $1 each or 6 for $5.

Here are Curriculum night details from Mr. Parks' email on 9/15:
September 22nd: 5:45--7:30 Curriculum Night. Curriculum Night is a great way to experience your child’s daily school by rotating through each of your child’s classes for a brief overview provided by each teacher. Teachers will share expectations about their classroom and go over the curriculum plan for the year during a short 10 minute presentation. This is also a great opportunity take a short tour to orient yourself with RMS. Look for a school map, your child’s schedule, and the attached information when you enter the front doors between 5:45 and 5:55 PM on Tuesday, September 22nd. A short introduction assembly will kick off the evening at 6 PM in our gym. We look forward to seeing you.

Note: please do not plan to conference with individual teachers on this evening. Parents will be rotating to another classroom every 10 minutes. Parents are always invited to conference with teachers throughout the year through a scheduled appointment. You may also call and request a teacher’s voice mail or contact staff via e-mail accounts.

Come join us at the first meeting of the year on Tuesday, 9/15/15

Hello Reeves Families! As the PTA co-President please allow me to extend a warm welcome to the new school year and to our Reeves Community. The Reeves PTA was established just four years ago as a way to enhance parent-teacher communication, support teachers in their work with our children, and create a more dynamic and cohesive community. As our children become more independent, parents often find themselves less connected with their child's school. However, staying connected is important! One way you can continue to participate in your child's education is to become an active member of the PTA. Participation in the PTA can be minimal such as attending our monthly meetings or volunteering to support a fundraising event. If you are looking for a larger commitment, you could chair a committee (we are looking for someone to co-chair the Teacher Appreciation Committee!) or help organize a fundraiser. Participating in the PTA is also a great way to meet other Reeves families. Annual membership fees are only $15. Please consider joining the Reeves PTA.

 

Our first meeting is Tuesday, September 15th at 5:30pm in the Reeves library. We hope you can make it and we look forward to meeting you!

 

Sincerely,

Sunshine Campbell, co-President (Deacon Campbell, 7th grade)

Simone Boe, co-President (Scotty Boe, 7th grade)

Chris White, Vice President (Ronan White, 8th grade)

Darcy Kauffman, Secretary (Nick Kauffman, 6th grade)

Aniysa Zuckowski, Treasurer (Cody Zuckowski, 8th grade)

On May 13th we'll be having our regular general membership meeting at 5:30pm.  This meeting is very important, as new officers are elected for the next school year and a budget passed.  We need potential board officer candidates as well as PTA members to attend for voting purposes.

Supporting our Reeves Community

Our Reeves PTA is always looking for ways to help our students and school staff in any way we can. This has included teacher grants, upgrades to school equipment, and small grants as they are identified for needy students. We are looking for suggestions from our PTA membership for new ways that we can better assist our students and staff. Please email suggestions to the PTA directly at reevespta@gmail.com.
