RMS Student Succeeds With Earth Month Proclamation!
Since April 2015, Whitney and her dad have been working on declaring the month of April Earth Month. They even created a hashtag on Facebook #onedayisnotenough. Last Tuesday, they shared their proclamation at a city council meeting, and their proposal was immediately approved by the mayor. Whitney and Eloise, along with a student from Chinook Middle School had the opportunity to thank the City Council at the meeting. Pictured below: Whitney and Eloise at the podium (left) and Whitney and Eloise with the Earth Flag.

Reeves Middle School Wins Washington Achievement Award!!!
I am happy to report that Reeves Middle School is a recipient of the 2015 Washington Achievement Award. There were 258 schools selected for this prestigious Washington Achievement Award. To give you a frame of reference, there are nearly 5,800 public, public charter, and private schools in the state of Washington. Reeves Middle School is being honored for High Progress. Schools qualify for this recognition if they are in the top 10% of schools making the most progress in the reading or ELA and math combined performance of all students, using the three years of data.
This is an extraordinary accomplishment and is a direct reflection of the hard work of our students, the dedication of our teachers, and the support and guidance of our parents. Reeves’ award is well deserved. In the past year(s), Reeves has implemented several improvements that have impacted our students’ success. The selection process for the Washington Achievement Award is very rigorous, and all of us take great pride in this accomplishment. Thank you for your continued support in making Reeves Middle School incredible.
Wonder Women Fight With Grit & Grace
The OSD District Battle of the Books Tournament Championship Battle was INTENSE! Our team, the Wonder Women, displayed wit and bravery as they answered tough and very detailed questions. In the end, the trophy went to Griffin Middle School. We are very proud of Wonder Women for their book smarts and sportsmanship during a very tough battle!
Many thanks to: Cora, Hollen, Sophia, Kayla, and Lauren.
PBIS Monthly Drawing for March
On March 31st, we completed our sixth 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 December drawing were:
1st prize, Ellie Bird: free large pizza and an order of wings
2nd prize, Ethan Webb: newly designed Reeves Raider t-shirt
3rd prize (grand prize), Jack Bowers: $40 Gift Card to Regal Cinemas
TStudents were truly exhibiting incredible positive behavior and we are fortunate to work with such wonderful students. Please congratulate the winning students for representing the 4 R's: Ready, Responsible, Respectful, Resiliency as well as all of the students that submitted tickets.
Why is Reeves Great?
Apply for College Bound Scholarships
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 the application, visit the College Bound Scholarship website. Applications and information are also available at all Olympia School District middle school front offices.
