Reardan Art Students - Amazing Job!

Reardan Students made a great impression again this year on judges at the ESD 101 Regional Art Show, with winners in 4 categories. With Bee Pope taking home a $2000 dollar scholarship to CWU, if she chooses to attend the university. Bee also received a 1st place which qualified her piece to advance to the state art show in Olympia. Gray LeSieur received a 3rd place with a great watercolor, and Kayla Vining was awarded a Judges' Choice Award for an amazing acrylic on canvas to round out the work that placed. We had Aubrey Vining "The Final Goodbye" , Hailey Fry "Night", and Logan Morris "Pencil Rocket also enter this year’s show proudly displaying their artwork alongside hundreds of others works of art.

If you happen to see any of these students, please congratulate them on their impressive artwork.

Middle School Update

With this month’s emphasis on the character trait of Responsibility, we are doing everything possible to encourage our middle school students to turn in all of their assignments and earn grades of “C” or higher. Each Monday morning we send all MS teachers the list of students who have “D” or “F” grades. Teachers are reviewing those lists with students to ensure they have the opportunity to fix their grades by turning in assignments. We have now started a Tuesday and Thursday study table in Mrs. Vesneske’s room during lunch. This is a quiet time where students can eat lunch while working on raising their grades. We have already seen many students who had to attend on Tuesday get their grades fixed by Thursday! Please continue to check with your child to ensure that they are being successful in passing classes. Third quarter ends on Friday March 31st. This is an early release day for students. We will have our PBIS reward that morning from 10:30 to 11:15. Students with no missing assignments and no office or bus referrals will be invited to a competition of “Minute to Win It” games with prizes.

We had an amazing Bi-County Honor Band and Choir Concert Monday evening at the FOX Theater. Students from across the Bi-County put on an incredible performance. Thanks to Mr. Goodman for his work getting out students ready for this event.

Thank you all for attending our Family Night Out with Stargazing at the Train Museum. We had 52 families–183 people total come out to learn about astronomy, look at the planets, and check out the Inland Northwest Rail Museum. We are planning events for April and May around Literacy and a Family Art Night sponsored by Rural Resources.

High School Community Service Opportunity

Sunday, April 30th from 11:30-2:30

Contact Information:

The Reardan Presbyterian Church will be hosting their 10th Annual Walk for Water and have offered this as an opportunity for our high school students to earn community service hours. Some additional information: This is our 10th year of the walk, and we would love to see a strong student presence (and staff too!). The 4mile (aka 6.4km) walk is open to everyone, there is no registration fee. We have folks who are willing to sponsor kids/teams just for being in the walk; of course extra donations are always welcome. Folks who can’t walk are welcome to help at the park. Pets on leashes are welcome, as are strollers & wagons. We’re having a free picnic in the park for everyone after the walk. We look at it as a time of community bonding, and it’s just fun. We’d love to see some student vs staff competitions for number of team members, buckets carried, who knows?
