Crusader Nation Gives Back Family Needs Survey

As the winter and the holiday season approaches the staff at Reuther Middle School is interested in gathering information from our school community regarding need for support. Each year our school is approached by outside organizations who want to provide different opportunities for supporting our community. We are hoping that we will be able to partner with some of these organizations again this year.

Examples of this support from past years include;
- Food assistance for Holiday Dinner
- New or Used Winter Coats/Gloves/Hats/Boots
- Help with gifts for students at the holidays
- Gift Cards for food/gift purchase

We may not be able to assist in every situation but to expedite this process, in the event we are given the opportunity to help, we are gathering information from families in advance so that we could more easily pair a family in need with perspective resources.


IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN HAVING US CONTACT YOU in the event that clothing, food, or other possible support is available PLEASE CLICK HERE to complete the form.

GAP Achievement Program

Please click on the PDF downloads to read more about our GAP Achievement Program at Reuther Middle School.


This year, the GOAL ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM (GAP) at Reuther will look a little different. The GAP Program is a structured way for students to set goals to excel academically and to develop interpersonal and social responsibility skills. The areas of focus are on academic achievement, citizenship, extra-curricular participation, and community service.


Throughout the year, students will be celebrated for their achievements as they work toward the goals in the GAP. Students who earn 24 points will receive special recognition at the end of the year honors ceremonies. 8th graders who earn 30 points will be eligible for the school’s annual Walter P. Reuther Award.


We are very excited to bring this program to our students. Encourage your child to get in the GAP!
