Dear Reed Families,
Fall is the season of gratitude & giving and Reed teachers and staff are working together to create a variety of opportunities for students to experience this throughout the season. We encourage families to reflect on and talk together about all the ways we can express gratitude & giving.
At our November 3rd Community Time assembly, Reed students honored and sang songs to express gratitude to 5 local veterans. Students also expressed gratitude to our country’s veterans through the stories included on the bricks used to build our Wall of Heroes. We hope that creating those bricks gave families the opportunity to share and talk about important heroes within their own family.
On Halloween, many Reed students trick-or-treated for Unicef. Together we collected money to provide clean water, school supplies, and emergency equipment to children in need.
Presently, Reed School is working together to help others during the upcoming holidays. The Marin Food Bank is in need of food donations to ensure that families in need will enjoy a holiday meal. Toward this end, we are asking each family to participate in our Holiday Share. Please make sure your child is actively involved in the planning, selecting, purchasing, and donating of the items. Participation in the entire process will help your child internalize these positive character traits. Collection bins are located in our front office.
We could not be more proud of our students and families. Please continue to look for ways to talk about, share, and express gratitude as you enjoy all that the holiday season brings.
Your Reed Staff
