Our Mission is to educate the students of the Reeds Road Elementary School, affording them significant opportunities suited to their age. We will instruct them in Study Skills to achieve mastery of subject matter. We will recognize individual kinds of educational experiences to meet the needs of each pupil. We will instruct to meet the interest and needs of our children which bear a meaningful relationship to the present and future. We will provide resources to be used with maximum efficiency in an environment in which any competition among our students is positive. We encourage opportunities for teaching staff members and students to make recommendations concerning the operation of the schools. We will provide diverse forms of constructive cooperation with parents/guardians and community groups.
First marking period report cards will be sent home with students on Tuesday, December 21, 2010.
1. Making Your List and Checking It Twice - December is the time for holiday shopping when parents spend hours upon hours searching for the perfect gift for their child. Gift ideas are everywhere, on television, in gift catalogs, in magazines, and in newspapers. Ads are at every turn stating the praises of their product. Buy this!” “This one is the best!”, is pitched at ear’s length. What is one to do? When buying gifts for your child, common sense must prevail. Don’t believe everything you hear. Investigate the product for yourself. Sure, not every gift that you buy for your child will be of great educational value. We all buy “just for fun” once in a while. However, there are so many gifts available that have some sort of educational value that one should not have a problem finding some. Books or magazine subscriptions make excellent gifts for holidays or birthdays. Sports, history, mysteries and science fiction are just a few types of books that you could select for your child. For the mechanically inclined there are model cars and airplanes, tinker toys, erector sets, Lincoln logs, Legos, etc. A child can use these gifts to explore his/her own creativity. Thinking skill games abound. There are board games and card games that will enhance learning without a conscious effort on the part of your child. Don’t be caught short this holiday season with gifts that only last a few days. Give gifts that provide your child the advantage of learning. Make wise choices and give your child gifts that have an educational value. You and your child will both be better off for doing so.
2. Don’t Forget To Read To Your Child…. Reading to your children has become a lost art in the last few years. Television, Game Boy, Play Station, etc., have taken over as the only form of entertainment we seem to consider. Reading to our children can add excitement and enjoyment to our children’s lives. Children of all ages enjoy being read to. Here are a few useful tips to follow when reading to your child.
1. Pick a regular time for reading
2. Choose a time with no interruption from television or telephone
3. Find a place that is quiet and cozy
4. Read with expression, but not to dramatically
5. Make sure your child can see the pictures and words
6. Have fun reading to your child
For the Safety of your children, please do not park in parking lot and allow students to run across lot/through-traffic lanes unescorted!
Please drop children off at the curb—or park and walk them across areas with traffic.
Mr. Terrence O’Connor

The Reeds Road School will be conducting a can food and dry food drive beginning November 1st. This is an effort to promote altruism and continue with the Reeds Road School’s Project H.O.P.E. (Helping Others Through Public Education). There will be boxes in each child’s classrooms for the products. Please have your children bring in non-perishable food items for families that live in our area beginning November. Pick-up of holiday food will take place in late November.

Students must be in school (4) hours or more to be considered present for the day. If you come to pick up your child before 1:00pm, and they do not return to school, your child will be marked absent.
If your child does return to school, they must be present (4) hours to be counted for the day.
