Our Week at Reutter School
Week of June 5, 2023
School Principal's Message
Reutter School Families:
Today, in accordance with state law, Reutter School conducted a security drill in the manner that we conduct all emergency drills, with seriousness and with sensitivity to our students and staff. Everyone responded appropriately and instruction resumed immediately thereafter.
As a follow-up to a previous email that was sent to all parents/guardians, we will be administering an anonymous, student-based character development survey this Friday to students as part of our Annual Color Run/Character Development festivities. This survey will help us better understand the strengths and areas of development for our students based on their perspective of our school's character development initiatives. We believe that character development is an essential part of a student's education, and your child's input will help our school's Climate and Culture Committee to create a more intentional and supportive learning environment. The survey will be voluntary and anonymous, so please encourage your child to participate if they feel comfortable doing so. If you wish for your child to NOT participate in this survey, please reply directly to this email and advise Mrs. Roberts, School Counselor, of your wishes.

A separate, parent and community-focused character development survey has also been developed to gather information from parents and community members about our school's initiatives in character development.

Thank you for your continued support.
A Look At This Past Week...
Sixth Grade Field Day
Sixth Grade students met up with fellow sixth graders from Aura School to compete in various activities during our Annual Sixth Grade Field Day. This activity was organized for the students of both schools to meet and greet each other as they move on to Delsea Middle School next academic year.
This week, Reutter School held a Career Day, providing students with the opportunity to explore different career paths. The event was attended by professionals from various industries, including business, healthcare, law enforcement and more. Students attended sessions presented by the speakers, which helped them gain a better understanding of the skills and qualifications required for each profession. The Career Day was a success as it helped students to gain insight about their options for future career paths.
Fifth grade parents-just a reminder… your child will need to receive two immunizations after he or she turns 11 years old (Tdap and Meningitis). These immunizations must be given before starting 6th grade in September. Please call your child’s doctor to schedule an appointment once your child turns 11 and send a copy of the shot record to Mrs. Zorzi, School Nurse. The Gloucester County Health Department offers free immunizations to children who do not have health insurance. Please call Mrs. Zorzi with any questions at 694-0223.
Students who are non-compliant will be excluded from school.
