Note from Dr. Erdie

Can you believe summer is about to end?! I hope you have had a restful summer with your family and friends. I have been able to spend time with my family and new grandson and enjoy every moment!

As I reflect on the past school year, I am reminded of the tremendous progress all of our students have demonstrated. I am so proud of all of our students and their achievements at Reese.

We are gearing up for an exciting 22-23 school year at Reese and are looking forward to meeting your student!

In this newsletter, you will find important back to school information. Please read carefully and reach out if you have any questions!
