On the Job Experience
Tana Martin had a very busy spring break! While many of us were relaxing with family and friends, Tana ran errands all over the Capitol campus and learned about how government works as a page for Representatives Ed Orcutt and Tana Senn. During this time she had the privelege to sit in House Chambers with the Speaker of the House, to participate in a mock committee where she created a mock bill, and she met many other students and representatives from around Washington State. Many other Reeves' students have had the opportunity to page this year, so if you see Will Church, Jackson Twitty, Rawley Spencer, or Tana, ask them about their time spent as pages at the Capitol. I am sure they will have a lot to say! See Tana pictured below with her two "bosses" during her week as a page.

March PBIS Drawing
On March 31st, we completed our seventh monthly drawing for students that have exhibited the Reeves' 4 R's. Every day, any student that exemplifies the Reeves' Raiders four R's (Ready, Responsible, Respectful, Resilient) in or out of class has an opportunity to earn a "shield" (paper ticket) from any staff member (including their bus driver). A student that earns their first shield, receives a Reeves' Raiders' wrist band (ask your student to show you!). Then throughout the year we will provide random acts of kindness for any student wearing the wristband at that time.
After a student receives their first wristband, any additional shield they earn goes into a bucket at the attendance office with Mrs. Jones with their first and last name on the "shield" and they are eligible for the monthly drawing. The winners of the March drawing were:
1st prize, Nicholas Mason: free pizza, an order of wings, and a stuffed animal Washington Husky
2nd prize, Annie Handy: newly designed Reeves Raider t-shirt & free small pizza
Grand prize, Ava Ford: 4 tickets to the movie and $15 gift card for snacks at the movie
Please congratulate these students for the winnings, but more importantly for representing the 4 R's: Ready, Responsible, Respectful, Resiliency
College Bound Scholarships
Attention 7th and 8th grade Reeves Families:
The College Bound Scholarship is here! The College Bound Scholarship is an early commitment of financial aid to eligible students in the seventh and eighth grade whose families might not be considering college because of its cost. Students sign a pledge in the seventh or eighth grade to be good citizens (not be convicted of a felony), graduate high school (with a 2.0 GPA or higher) and apply and gain admission to an eligible college. If families meet the income requirements and the students fulfill the pledge, then the scholarship will be combined with other state financial aid (at comparable public colleges), some fees, and a small book allowance.
To view and complete the application, visit the College Bound Scholarship website. Informational flyers are also available at your local middle school office.
