Dear Reynolds Families,

On Thursday we participated in the annual international Earthquake Shakeout Drill. All students learned the procedures of drop and cover. They were able to practice those procedures during the drill.

Students and staff are looking forward to having our first Spirit week. Check out the table of events below to see how you can help your child to participate.

Last week we captured our 4th graders hard at work.
