Daily Announcements

Computer Club

Miss Fox and Miss Giorgi invite you to join the computer club and learn about coding! We will be meeting Wednesday mornings in February and March and we will be using the Hour of Code program to learn the basics of computer coding through games and cartoon animations. 

 

Permission slips are in the main office and must be filled out and returned by January 29th. Students who participated in the last computer club session cannot sign up again so that new students have a chance to join in on the fun. We are only able to take the first 18 students, so get your permission slip in as soon as possible!

Basketball and Floor Hockey Intramurals

Basketball and Floor Hockey Intramurals will ruin for 7 weeks starting Monday, January 22nd, at 7:45 am until March 12th in the main gym. There will be no session on Monday, February 19th due to the holiday weekend.

 

All Reed students are eligible to participate. However, space is limited and session #3 is open to the first 50 students that return a signed permission slip. Please wear sneakers, comfortable clothes nd tie long hair back for safety and comfort.

 

Permission slips are available on Mrs. Failla's or Mrs. Gattey's websites.

 

Return your signed permission slips to either teacher in the PE office.

 

Thank you!
