REFLECTIONS ENTRIES DUE OCTOBER 20TH

Submit Online: https://www.utahpta.org/ref

2020 has been a "one of a kind" year, full of new opportunities, challenges and experiences. The Reflections Theme for this year is "I Matter Because..." What a great opportunity for our kids to share with us what they have learned this year regarding why they matter. Kids are allowed to submit entries in the following categories - Dance Choreography, Film Production (where they do all of the filming), Literature, Music Composition, Photography, 2D or 3D Visual Art. Although a treasure to us all, we would love to have the kids at Reading show us why they matter.


If students from Reading are interested in submitting a Reflections Entry, please visit https://www.utahpta.org/ref. All submissions will be submitted online from the comfort of your own home or wherever you have internet access :) and no longer will have to be physically turned into the school. If you have any problems or need additional help with submitting, please contact Jodi Mulitalo at jodi.mulitalo@gmail.com. I am looking forward to seeing the great talent we have at Reading!

REIMBURSEMENT PLAN FOR LITTLE MERMAID TICKETS

Unfortunately, COVID-19 has really done a number on the extracurricular programs that we have desperately wanted to do at Reading. We would like to give a HUGE shout-out to the countless hours donated to help put on a school play. Although many hands were involved, I really want to thank Natalie Hunter and family as well as Tami Richardson and family for all of their hours invested, effort, skill and hard work in making our school plays so phenomenal. We can't thank them enough.


If you purchased tickets and would like to be reimbursed, please mark your calendars for Monday, October 19th, and Tuesday, October 20th. We will be set up to gladly reimburse your money for the tickets previously purchased. Refunds will be available those days between 8:10-8:45am and again from 3:25-4:00pm. If you have a scheduling conflict and cannot come at either of those times/dates, please contact Natalie Hunter or Jodi Mulitalo directly to obtain reimbursement.


Please bring your tickets with you as you will need them to receive your money. If you would prefer to donate your ticket purchase to the school, we appreciate your donation and will be pooling it into the PTA School Fund for activities/events for the kids this year. Thank you for all of those who have helped with any aspect of this play. We have an amazing community of volunteers and helpers at our school.

Jodi Multialo, PTA President

Help Keep Wranglers Safe at School - donation drive through October 9

I am Kate Robinson, a parent at Reading Elementary. Thank you for being supportive of our school and the students and staff members. We are part of an effort to collect PPE items that will be used to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as we return back to classes four days each week. We want to thank our teachers, faculty, and staff by helping them know we are here for them and will do what we can to help make this transition easier and safer for everyone.


Before school each day from Monday until October 9th, we will be collecting Lysol/Clorox wipes, gel hand sanitizers, extra cloth masks, paper towels, Lysol spray, and other items that can be safely used to keep germs away. I will be out front of the school with a box for parents and students to put donations. Please help us get word out. We are so grateful for everyone in this challenging time. Thanks again to Reading staff for your continued service and love for our children during these times. Know you are loved and appreciated.
