Yellow Bus Challenge 2.0

Yellow Bus Challenge 2.0 will officially begin on Monday, April 27th at 9 am when tickets go on sale for the 2015-16 school year.  Thanks to funding from the Town of Tiburon and City of Belvedere, we are able to offer more routes, redesigned pick up and drop off locations, faster travel times, campus-specific seating and half-price passes for all RUSD students.   In an effort to alleviate traffic on Tiburon Boulevard during peek school start and end times, there will be 13 additional routes: 11 in the mornings and 9 in the afternoons.  Routes posted on the attached link are still being fine tuned, as are school start and end times, so there may be some minor modifications before passes go on sale.  See more details, including current projected route maps and times, at this link.



Planning for the 2015-2016 school year

Each year at this time we begin budget development for the following school year.   A key component in our planning is the number of students we project will attend RUSD, in this case, in 2015 - 2016 .  We have always relied on our parent community to let us know as early as possible, if their child(ren) will not be returning in the Fall.  Please take a moment to complete this survey regarding your plans for next year.



Phoebe Hearst Nominations
In the spirit of Teacher Appreciation Week, we would like to give parents the opportunity to nominate a favorite teacher for the Phoebe Hearst Outstanding Educator Award. On this survey, please tell us about the wonderful qualities that you and your child appreciate about his/her favorite teacher this year. All the notes of appreciation will be confidentially shared with the teacher you choose to recognize. We are thankful and fortunate to have such a wonderful staff. Nominations must be received by April 30th.  The recipient of the Phoebe Hearst Award will be announced at the Celebration of Education on May 27, 2015.  Thank you for recognizing our fabulous teachers!

From Galileo Camps


GALILEO CAMPS for Pre-K - 8th Graders:  Welcome to Innovation at Reed Elementary! 

The world needs innovators. That's where Galileo comes in. We think kids who learn to explore and fail without fear-the essence of innovation-are happier, more creative and more confident when faced with life's challenges. Drawing from the innovation process developed by the Stanford Design school, Galileo runs an evolving series of imagination-sparking programs for kids from pre-K through 8th grade:

  • Camp Galileo: Pre-K - 5th graders 
  • Galileo Summer Quest: 5th - 8th graders 

Hosted by Reed Elementary School in 2015, we're excited to be back in the Tiburon community.  For added convenience, we offer extended care from 8 am to 6 pm and an optional healthy lunch program.


Financial Aid also available (deadline of March 27).
