Austin Schmidt Raising Money for Children's Hospital

Austin Schmidt, a senior at Reedsville High School, has been chosen to play at the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association All-Star Game in July. This is a great achievement for one of our athletes and is a proud moment for the football program, our entire district, and Austin's family. We wish him the best of luck as he competes against the best football players in the state.

As part of the program, Austin is raising money to be donated to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. We are working on a school fundraiser for Mid-May, but you can donate now either online or cash/check made to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin that can be dropped off at school. Below is the link to Austin's biography and the link to donate to his cause. Thank you for donating to this great organization!

Summer School Program Enrollment Coming to an End

There is still time to register for the summer school program! We have a great line-up of student-favorite classes and a few new classes and new teachers. It is a great program where our kids are learning and having fun at the same time. Please know that if you wait on registration, that we cannot guarantee bus transportation as those routes will begin to be built over the next week. Please call me with any questions and the link to the packet is below.

Mr. Nate's Reading Adventure!

My new read-a-long is titled THE THREE LITTLE GATORS by Helen Ketteman and illustrated by Will Terry. The book is about three gators trying to navigate their way in life. They hit a few bumps in the road, but by staying together, their adventure turns out great! Enjoy the read.

Middle School Homework Link

Embedded within the Reedsville School District website is a Google Doc that contains a homework page for each class. This is an excellent tool for parents to know, in real time, what students have for homework today and what is potentially on the horizon. Teachers will update the Google Doc on a daily basis prior to leaving the building to ensure accurate information for parents after school. Know that assignments listed further out MIGHT change, but they will be assigned at some point. Here is the link:

Ways to Help the School...

The Reedsville Elementary/Middle School continues to collect Box Tops for Education and EconoFood receipts. These items help to offset costs on playground equipment, field trips, and other activities throughout the year. It is easy to collect them. You can drop these items off either in the office or with classroom teachers. Remember that every little bit helps! If you have not done so yet, please sign up for the Remind service. When we have school closings/delays, I send this message out to parents so that they receive messages as soon as possible. is also great tool that we use to notify parents of important, school-wide events. In addition, we will be using this service as a way to contact parents in the event of an emergency. These instructions will provide important information as events unfold here at school. It is a text message service that allows me to quickly and confidentially notify you of school-related news. The instructions are embedded within the above link, but you could also text @reedsv to (920)202-8831. If you have signed up in the past, there is no need to sign up again.

Parent Corner

Quote of the week, "Teachers affect eternity, no one can tell where their influence stops." Henry Brooks Adams

Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week. Our teachers are the life of our school and they not only educate our children, but they also nurture and guide them throughout life. They are tremendous role models who will run through a brick wall to see all of their students gain success. It would be an awesome jesture for students and/or parents to take a minute and scribe a letter thanking their teachers for everything that they do. If you want to do this for Tuesday, May 7, our teachers would receive thank you notes from many teachers. I can tell you personally, that these letters mean the world to our teachers. Thanks for taking the time to thank our staff.
