SUBJECT: Reed Eye Opener Newsletter - Week of 8/19/22

Do you feel it?

We are loving the positive vibes coming from Reed students and staff this year! The laughter, smiles, and energy have been so uplifting the last two weeks. We hope you feel it, too!

A BIG CONGRATS to Brandy Jones, a new PTA member who won the drawing at Meet the Teacher for a FREE Bowling Party at Allen Bowl!

The PTA would love to have you join us. No, you aren't committed to attending any meetings or volunteering by joining (of course, you can do that if you want to!) Check out the open Board positions, look out for volunteer opportunities, or just join to show your support.

A reminder for volunteers & chaperones
Annual Background Check

Allen ISD requires all volunteers or chaperones to complete an annual background check. It's easy to do but can take up to two weeks to get results, so do it now and don't miss an event! 

CLICK HERE to check this off your list.

This year's Volunteer Coordinator is Cathy Wolf. If you'd like to get involved in a specific way, you can contact Cathy at volunteer@reedpta.org.
