PIZZA FACTORY DAY - NOVEMBER 2nd

Middle school volleyball beat St. George's at home to avenge their only loss this year. Lead by new head coach Heidi Clairmont and new assistant coach Cathryn Logwood, the girls all played amazing and we all look forward to seeing what the future holds for each one of them.
Reardan Middle School football wrapped up the season with a tough loss to Ritzville, but the boys showed improvement every week, and came together as team.
MS Cross Country
MS Cross Country saw it's biggest turn out in years and was full of great athletes. With this group there is no telling what heights they may reach over the next few years.
HS FootballCrossover Game vs. Brewster on Friday!
On Wednesday the Reardan girls beat the UCA Lions 5-1 in a district tie breaker game that was played in the snow!!! Our girls have shown an incredible amount of grit all season long. Despite playing short handed in the majority of their games, this group of fierce players have shown us what a team can do when they hang together. They are in Davenport as I write this, and depending on the outcome the team will be playing a third district game on October 31st either against St. George's at TBA or Northwest Christian Academy at 4:00. Go Screaming Eagles!
Middle School Update
This week we have been working on re-teaching expectations. Students are working on being more organized and not having to carry all of their belongings with them all day long. We have asked students to keep their PE items in their PE lockers, musical instruments in their band room lockers, and to store their backpacks in their hallway lockers. The next step is for students to learn to organize their papers into folders or binders rather than having them loose in backpacks and lockers. Any organizational support you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
Our end of month PBIS celebration was today, and we gave certificates and treats to students nominated by their MS teachers who showed the trait of courage. We also celebrated all students whose grades were at “C” level and above with a “candy buffet” and their choice of three activities: movie and coloring with Mrs. Hamilton, chess or card games with Mr. B., or bingo with Mrs. Vesneske. These age appropriate activities came from surveying our MS students and asking them what their preferred activities were–another component of PBIS. Students who needed more time to catch up on missing assignments were with Mrs. Koch. 72% or 81 of 112 students were able to participate in their preferred activity. Students and staff had a great afternoon celebrating their success! Students following expectations have also been receiving “caught ya being good” cards from staff. They can turn them in to Principal Newsum for a small treat. November 1st is the end of first quarter and we are emphasizing student responsibility and accountability for their grades. We will continue to have “lunch bunch” with Mrs. Vesneske on Tuesdays and Thursdays during lunch for students who need to get caught up.
The elementary will have classroom parties on Tuesday, October 31st. Be on the lookout for more information from your child’s teacher. Students may bring a costume in their backpack to wear in the afternoon. Students may not wear their costume to school and we ask that costumes do not include wearing face paint, have spray painted hair, or masks.
Fall conferences are right around the corner. We will send home conference letters on Friday. Please fill out the form and return it to school by November 9th. The Book Fair is back! The Scholastic Book Fair will begin on Tuesday, November 14th-Tuesday, November 22nd.
Reardan P.I.E. will host a Father-Daughter Dance on Friday, December 8th. We need volunteers to plan this event. If you are interested in helping with this event, please contact Cathy Eylar email@example.com.
Our Lost and Found is overflowing. If your child is missing any clothing items, please stop by the Lost and Found. We often have a collection of hoodies and jackets. It is helpful to write your child’s name in their clothing so that we can return the items to their owner if found.
As the weather is getting colder, please send your child to school in winter weather gear. We go outside for recess in cold and inclement weather.
