What’s coming up at Reed?

Grade Level Talks are on the calendar! This is your chance to learn more about what to expect of your growing Kindergartner, 1st or 2nd Grader. Led by our wonderful school psychologist Dr Maya Van Putten, as well as Principal Dr Mary Niesyn & a grade level teacher in Room 26.

  • 2nd Grade: Tuesday 18th October 8:30-9:30am 


 With Halloween just around the corner, we wanted to make sure that you all have the most up-to-date information regarding Halloween festivities at Reed.  We have contingencies in place rain or shine! 

General Guidelines:

  • Costumes are optional
  • Students wear costumes to school.  Please be sure to select an appropriately themed costume for your child. Costumes may not include weapons, masks, or overtly scary (this includes parents). Be mindful that our students are young and scary images can be overwhelming.
  • Clown Costumes are not permitted this year
  • After the parade students will change into their regular clothing. Costumes will be placed into backpacks.
  • Classroom parties have been scheduled at the discretion of the classroom teacher. All guests must sign in at the office before proceeding to the classrooms.

 No Rain:

  • School-wide parade is scheduled to be from 8:45 to 9:15ish on the blacktop
  • Parents and caregivers are welcome. Parents must wait on the blacktop before parade, please do not escort your child to his/her classroom either before or after the parade.
  • Teachers will bring students down to blacktop to form a large rectangle.  Parents and guests form an outer rectangle.  This will allow for equal opportunity picture taking!  Parents may not stand in the center of the rectangle as this is reserved for students only.

 In Case of Rain:

  • Parade will be relocated to the MPR. Due to limited space and fire code restrictions, the parade will be a student-only event. Unfortunately parents are not invited to attend.
  • Classroom parties will continue as scheduled 
Please see the Superintendent's letter on Halloween Safety 
Students are to arrive at school between 8:00 and 8:25. The first bell rings at 8:25 and the students to line up by Room number on the blacktop. Teachers meet the students on the blacktop and accompany them to their classrooms. At 8:30 the second bell rings and classroom instruction begins. Students who arrive after the 8:30 bell are to report to the office for a tardy slip.
