World Read Aloud Week- One School, One Book!
Every family will receive a copy of the same book and a reading schedule for the week. Please make the time so your family can participate in this special activity. Reading aloud at home is valuable because it better prepares your child to be an effective reader. But it is also a fun, worthwhile family activity. With the One School, One Book program, we aim to build a community of readers at Reynolds School. Everyone – students, teachers, administrative staff- will be participating, and we can all reap the many benefits.Your child will receive a copy of the surprise book at a special school-wide assembly introducing the program and the book on Monday, February 4th. There will be clues leading up to the big reveal on Monday morning! You can look for the clues each day on the board in our main lobby. Our School Committee has planned activities throughout the week for our students to enjoy that are all focused on the theme of the book. We will hold a reading assembly, read together as a school, enjoy mystery readers, book buddies, and a variety of fun activities throughout the week. We look forward to this wonderful week to continue to foster a love of reading in Reynolds School!

Digital Citizenship & Internet Safety in School and at Home
All students have been learning about Digital Citizenship with Mrs. Cucci. Digital Citizenship teaches students how to safely and effectively use the Internet. We use an integrated approach, which provides students with the awareness and knowledge they need in order to recognize and avoid dangerous, destructive, or unlawful online behavior and to respond appropriately.
Mrs. Cucci's recent letter outlines the focus for each grade level unit. We encourage you to also discuss this important topic with your children at home and monitor their computer activity carefully. There are several online games that students may be playing at home where they can connect and communicate with others. Monitoring this interaction closely on any website or app is strongly recommended for student safety at home.
Recently, USR hosted a Digital Citizenship Night to discuss this topic with parents. You can find the Reynolds presentation on our School Website.
Parking Lot Safety
In recent months, there have been several reported incidents of dangerous driving in the school parking lot in the morning and afternoon. Please be mindful of your speed, pay careful attention to the road, and exercise caution at all times.
Please follow the direction of the crossing guard at all times. If you use the visitor lot for drop off, please pull into a parking space so that you do not block the crosswalk or other cars. Also, please do not use the reserved spaces for drop off, and remember that the handicapped spaces require a sticker for use. It is recommended that you allow extra time on rainy days and frosty mornings. During pick up, please return to your cars immediately to minimize delays and follow the guidance of those that are directing traffic.
