SUBJECT: Reed PTA Newsletter 8/26/22

Reed Families,

I'm excited to be your new PTA President! I have a second grader at Reed and a 15 and 18 year old. 

We have an awesome year planned for our Reed families and staff. Thanks to last year's successful fundraising, we are able to provide free and low cost fun family events. 

Our next one was such a big hit last year that we had to bring it back. Save the date for PIZZINGO on Friday, September 23rd!

Hope to see you all then. Feel free to email me with any questions. 

Nancy Jackson

We will be hosting a tailgate luncheon for our MVP staff on Thursday, September 8th. PTA will be putting together a Nacho Bar & Chips/Dips Station for all our Reed staff with the help of our families. 

Join us to set up, clean up, or drop off an item to pitch in!

Please deliver items to the school at drop off or by 9am on Thursday, September 8th so that we can everything ready before lunchtime.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me. 

Thank you!

Mary McDonald
Hospitality Chair


Snack Cart!

The sign up above (for the staff luncheon) also includes snacks towards the end because we want to start a snack cart for the staff this year! We'll fill the cart up with the generous donations once a month to give the staff a little pick-me-up!

Three Easy Ways to Support Reed:
1. Amazon Smile

Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Gene Reed Jr. Elementary PTA when you shop on AmazonSmile.
