PBIS Drawing for November
On November 30th, we completed our third 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. We had a random act of kindness on last Friday and any student wearing, at that time, a Reeves' Raider wrist band was sent down to the cafeteria during Opportunity Time for a snack.
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 September drawing were:
1st prize, Laia Tang: free large pizza and an order of wings
2nd prize, Tighe Malloy: newly designed Reeves Raider t-shirt
3rd prize (grand prize), Hambda Biggerstaff: mp3 player and iTunes gift card
Please congratulate these students for representing the 4 R's: Ready, Responsible, Respectful, Resiliency
Amazing Veteran's Day Assembly
A big thank you to the man's choir, 7th/8th grade choir, and 7th/8th grade band for their performance at the Veteran's Day Assembly. Also, thank you to Mrs. Garrett, Mrs. Weber, Mr. Grostick, and Ms. Daulton for organizing and performing during the Veteran's Day Assembly. We had a great showing and the students did a wonderful job facilitating the assembly as well as being respectful in the audience. It was a great moment to honor our veterans. You can access a video of the choir and band students performing together at the assembly by clicking on the image below.
Seeking a Ping Pong Table for OT Fun
Photo compliments of: http://www.jimlangley.net/aboutjim/art/Cat-ping-pong.jpg
We are in need of a Ping Pong table for our cafeteria. As you can see from the photo above, Ping Pong is a very popular sport during Opportunity Time. The Ping Pong table would need to be the foldable kind so we can store it when not in use.
Please contact Ms. Zarate if you have a Ping Pong table that you are no longer using and you are willing to donate. Thanks!

Safe Schools Alert
Safety is our top priority. SafeSchools Alert is a reporting system that allows students, staff, and parents to submit concerns to our administration in four different ways; phone, text, email or via the web. Anyone may easily report on bullying, harassment, alcohol/other drugs, vandalism or safety concerns through the SafeSchools Alert process. Tips may be submitted anonymously.
Instances of harrasment, intimidation or bullying may also be reported by completing the "HIB Incident Reporting Form" found here on the OSD website. After completing this form it may be delivered in person, by fax, or email attachment to the school principal.
If you have questions, contact your school principal or the District Compliance Officer, Jeff Carpenter at (360) 596-8544.
