Dear Wolfpack Community--

Welcome to Week 7! We hope you and your family are healthy, happy, and enjoying the cooler weather. Please take a moment to check out what's going on at Reed this week.

Parisa Stepanek - Friends of Reed President

Jenna Schwartz - PTSA President

Friends of Reed's Annual Giving Campaign is the main fundraising drive to support ALL students at Reed. This year, FoR is raising money for these exciting (and needed) initiatives:

  • the purchase of several new tables with umbrellas so our students can spread out and safely enjoy lunch all over campus
  • campus beautification--landscaping, painting, and upgrades to Schall Park
  • student enrichment including day field trips for this year

Make your donation today. Our goal is 100% participation from all academies at ANY level that works for your family, whether that's $10, $100, or $1,000!
