February PBIS Drawing
On March 1st, 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 January drawing were:
1st prize, Hollen Foster Grahler: free large pizza and an order of wings
2nd prize, Sydney Gersich: newly designed Reeves Raider t-shirt & free small pizza
Grand prize, Jayllah Gary and Karli Kooi: $25 Amazon Gift Card
Please congratulate these students for the winnings, but more importantly for representing the 4 R's: Ready, Responsible, Respectful, Resiliency

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 and complete the application, visit the College Bound Scholarship website. Informational fliers are also available at your local middle school office.
