SUBJECT: Eye Opener Newsletter (10/24/22)

A big thank you to all of our Reed Owls who participated in throwing pies at Principal Jones, AP Capps and Coach B! We had over 78 students throw pies and as you can see from the pictures they did a fantastic job hitting their targets! We appreciate everyone’s participation and an extra big thank you to our amazing staff for being so fun and supportive of our Reed PTA.  

Volunteers were BUSY the last few weeks at Reed. Thank you for showing up over and over again. Together we accomplished:

  • Book Fair
  • Walk to School Day
  • Staff Appreciation Lunch
  • Picture Day
  • Pie in the Face Membership Drive

Coming up in November: 

  • Staff Appreciation Treat (popcorn and caramel apple bar)
  • Veterans Day
  • Silent Auction

Because we want to be sure as many students and staff are able to participate as possible, and to not conflict with the Allen Eagle home game, we are canceling Trunk or Treat. 

No worries, because Cletus our Candy Monster is excited to share his candy with all of our Owls! (Cletus and Clyde are working on a plan.)

Thank you for being flexible with us as we support our AISD family.

One of our BIGGEST fundraisers is the Online Silent Auction beginning on Black Friday (11/25). We are seeking donations of items, services and gift cards to auction. Do you know a business owner who would help our Reed Owls? We would love to give them publicity in return for their donation! Please contact Nancy Jackson at president@reedpta.org.
