Reed's March Students of the Month
Reed students who demonstrated responsible citizenship throughout March were celebrated in a very special way. Three students from each classroom were recognized for their outstanding efforts. Students nominated for this prestigious honor demonstrated the 3 B's (Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Peaceful) consistently throughout the month.
All students nominated for the monthly award were recognized and celebrated at the school. The District 92 Foundation for Educational Excellence generously funded the lawn signs for this school-wide project. Look for Student of the Month signs soon in your neighborhood!

News from the Music Room
Happy Spring! This is always an exciting time for Music at Reed School! The Second Graders will be performing their Spring Musical, Pajama Party. It will take place on Friday, May 17. There will be two programs, one at 10:00 and one at 2:00. We ask that if your last name begins with A-M, please try to attend the 10:00 show if possible. If your last name begins with N-Z, please try to attend the 2:00 show if possible.
The Third Grade Choir students are busy rehearsing for our upcoming District 92 Elementary Choral Festival at Oak Prairie Junior High School. It will be on Thursday, April 25. Choir students who have turned in permission forms will be bussed to Oak Prairie at approximately 2:00. They will have a fun and musical afternoon rehearsing with the Ludwig choirs and eating pizza! They will perform a concert for family and friends at 6:30 in the Oak Prairie gym. The concert will be over by 7:15, so if you are unable to attend the concert, they will need to be picked up at that time from Oak Prairie.
The choir is also busy preparing to sing “America Rocks” at the Chicago Wolves game on Sunday, April 14. Our choir will perform from a designated area in the stands during one of the intermissions. Our choir name will appear on the LED boards around the Arena, and the students will be spotlighted and featured on the jumbo tron! The game starts at 4:00, and our performance will take place at about 5:00.
The choir will also be performing at Brigham Young University in Salt Lake City, Utah! Our students will not physically be there, but they will be appearing on a video screen singing with other children from across the United States! The event is called Hope of America. It is the nation’s largest patriotic student showcase to honor America, our Military, and our First Responders. I will be sending in a recording of our students singing two songs, and this recording will be used at the event on May 7, 8 and 9 in the 22,000 seat Marriot Arena on the campus of BYU.

The 3rd grade students are currently busy drawing "backyard" birds. Our Audubon inspired project should be completed later in the month. In addition, we'll be using our iPads to identify and research our chosen birds. I look forward to learning along with the students!
