Happy Spring Reidenbaugh Hoppers!
April is off to a great to start and we are already underway in our last marking period for the 2017-18 school year! Report cards for the 3rd marking period will be sent home on Tuesday, April 17th.
Next week we will be starting PSSA’s for 3rd and 4th grade and we have a couple of things that we need everyone to keep in mind. PSSA’s will be April 10th-12th (ELA), April 17th-18th (Math), and April 24th– 25th (Science – 4th Grade). If you are bringing a child in late that is in grades Kindergarten-2nd we ask that you enter the school in silence and please be patient, as we need someone to walk the student to their classroom. If a student is late in grades 3rd or 4th and testing has begun they will need to wait in the office until testing is complete to go to class. They will need to make up the test that they have missed at another time. We ask that parents of students in grades 3rd and 4th avoid scheduling any early dismissals or late arrivals during this time. We can not dismiss any 3rd or 4th graders during testing, if you come to dismiss a child in the middle of testing from those grades we will not be able to dismiss them until all testing is complete. We will not be having volunteers during this time unless permission has been granted. If you have any questions or concerns please call the office and we will be happy to help.
During PSSA’s we have the PSSA color days, students can wear the colors listed below to show support for their fellow classmates.
Tuesday, April 10- Be Brave! Wear a RED shirt to school. Red is the color of bravery & encourages confidence.
Wednesday, April 11- Just Chill! Wear a BLUE shirt to school. Blue is very calming & aids in intuition.
Thursday, April 12- Caution!!! Students are working. Wear an ORANGE shirt to show that you’re hard at work!
Tuesday, April 17- Victory! In ancient Greece, green was the color of victory. Wear a GREEN shirt to show your victory!
Wednesday, April 18- Fresh start! Wear WHITE to show that you are ready to make a clean start!
Tuesday, April 24- A Bit of Sunshine! Wear a YELLOW shirt to school. Yellow activates your mind & puts a smile on your face!
Wednesday, April 25 – PURPLE combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red. Celebrate your victory and a job well done!
A big congratulations to the students listed below. They were the “pledge winners” for the month of February and March. The teachers nominated these students because they live out the Reidenbaugh Pledge. These students had lunch with the “Fun Lunch Bunch” on Thursday, March 29, 2018.
