Welcome to Reede Gray Elementary!

I'd like to welcome our new staff and all of the new families to ReedeGray.  We hope you find it a welcoming and enjoyable place to be.  We have some fantastic additions to our staff this year.  Sydnie Weiss-Anderson and Brenda Rasmussen will be teaching first grade this year and Melanie Kurtz will be teaching second grade.  We also hired Jeremiah Oyetunji to teach Phy. Ed.  In the speech and language department we've added Courtney Bergeson and Amelia Palokangas.  We have also hired several new paraprofessionals in our building.  Tianna Arredondo, Shelby Helgeson and Laurie Ourada will be working in the elementary portion of the building and Deb Frericks and Amy Haala will be in the early childhood department.  Below are just a couple reminders as we get started with our year.  

MONDAY MINUTE--Don't forget to check out the Monday Minute to the left for weekly updates.

PAYMENTS--When sending payment of any kind, please put it in an envelope with your child's name and homeroom teacher name clearly marked on the outside of the envelope.  This helps with getting into the correct account if it becomes misplaced.

DROP OFF--If you are dropping off your child at school, please use the circle drive off McPhail Drive.  If you pull ahead as far as possible this will help keep traffic moving.  If you need to park, you can either use the spots in the circle or park across the street in the church parking lot and use the crosswalk.  The staff parking lot should not be used for drop off as this is a safety issue.  Drop off time should be no earlier than 8:00 am unless your child is on school patrol.

SKYWARD--If you haven't signed up for Skyward, stop in the office and talk to Cindy about getting set up.  It takes just a couple minutes.  This is our system for alerting families about school closings.  It can also be used to track attendance, lunch accounts and grades.  

Looking forward to a great school year!
