Dear Parents/Guardians,
On behalf of the administrators and staff of Reed Academy for Engineering, I am happy to welcome you
to the 2017-18 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our
children can achieve their highest potential. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great
difference in your child’s education.
We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:
1. Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s “bell to bell” learning experience
2. Reads 20 minutes at home daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
3. Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
Please consider joining our school volunteer program as our students can greatly benefit from your
involvement and contributions. We seek volunteers to help us with the following activities:
1. School-wide events (Fall Festival, Literacy nights, Conversations with Counselors, etc.)
2. Student recognition events (Perfect attendance parties, Academic growth and excellence
celebrations, etc.)
It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding standards and expectations
related to academic growth and appropriate behavior for a safe and productive school year. You are
invited to the 5

th grade Orientation on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. in the
Reed Cafeteria. School supply packages will be sold for $30.00 (tax included), Reed backpacks will be
sold for $15.00 (tax included) and Reed Academy t-shirts will be sold for $10 dollars (tax included).
We will discuss the following items at the orientation:

Please note that students will not receive their class schedule at the orientation. Schedules
will be given to all students on the first day of school, Monday, August 21, 2017.

your partnership in the advancement of your child’s education.
