Middle School Updates

Spring is here and students are enjoying some very engaging activities. Ms. Vesneske’s science classes walked out to Audubon Lake to learn about the water system and the over 144 bird species who use this sanctuary. Middle Schoolers are also enjoying power tools in woodshop building birdhouses and tool boxes under the guidance of Ms. Borland. Mrs. Hamilton’s health classes have been trained by our amazing Reardan Volunteer Firefighters and received their first aid cards. Lots going on, and lots to look forward to:

Secondary ELA Update

Our secondary English teachers have been working diligently this year to pilot new ELA curriculum. Teachers in grades 6-12 have been using Study Synch, a subdivision of McGraw-Hill. They are planning to request the board formally adopt this curriculum at the May 31 school board meeting. If you are interested in previewing the curriculum, we will have samples available in the district office the month of May. We will also have a display out in the HS foyer during the band concert and at the freshmen orientation parent meeting at 6 pm on May 25th in the HS Innovation Center (HS Library). We are excited to share this new curriculum with you.

Elementary Updates

The end of the year is coming quickly! Please make sure your child has looked through the lost and found and claimed any lost items.

June 12th will be the Elementary Field Day! We will be doing fun activities from approximately 8:30-11am. The day will be filled with competitions, group games and snacks. If you are interested in helping run one of the stations, please reach out to Mr. Graham. You will be taught the activity and have a high school student helper with you.

The Elementary students sent Officer Foust off to the Police Academy with cards and words of wisdom. We are going to miss Officer Foust the rest of the year and look forward to her return next September.

Options Program Update

Our very own, Ransom Grey, won the Junior Boys All-Around Champion at the Tonasket Junior Rodeo! Good job, Ransom! We are so proud of you!

The Options Program went to the Corbin Art Center and studied Laurel Burch. We created our own Laurel Burch artwork and learned about different media. In our enrichment classes, we are learning how to judge livestock, use a computer/google products, make butter and learning how to play cricket! If you are ever in the high school, come see our Rainbow Trout before we release them in Medical Lake in late May! They are getting so big!

Update - Brad Eylar, Director of Security

Hi Parents,

I wanted to announce that next week our School Resource Officer, Officer Foust, will be attending the full time Basic Law Enforcement Academy. Officer Foust has been proudly serving with the Reardan Police Department and has been in the school all year as our SRO. Officer Foust has already committed to being back next year. She has been an amazing asset to the school, bonding with so many of our students. Officer Foust is a perfect example of what a School Resource Officer can be. Not only is she there to support the mission of Known, Loved, and Learning, but she is a true example of a dedicated protector. My kids go to Reardan and I am always confident they are safe when she is here.

We will all miss her the remainder of the year, but are excited for her adventure this spring and summer. The students and staff wanted to give her a proper send off with a spirit tunnel this morning!

Brad Eylar
