Welcome to Reede Gray Elementary!

Welcome to another exciting year at Reede Gray!  It will be one of growing, learning and gaining new experiences.  I am honored to be able  to serve all of you in my second year as your principal. We are excited to welcome our new staff to the Redwood area.  Cassie Scharmer, physical education, Kaitlyn Krueger, 1st grade, Cassie Spanovich, 2nd grade, and Heather Briese, Kindergarten, are all bringing their special talents to share along with our wonderfully talented staff and students here at Reede Gray.

Back to School Night will be held on August 17th from 4:30-6:00 p.m. and our first day of school will be August 21st for students entering grades 1-4.  Our kindergarten families will have a scheduled time to meet with their new teacher and will have their first day of school on August 22nd.  If you are new to the Redwood Area School District, stop by the office for registration papers so we can help get your child ready for an exciting year.

We encourage everyone to take an active role in their child’s education by communicating regularly with their teacher, attending school events and reading with your child daily. Together, there is no limit to what we can accomplish!

Something new for the upcoming school year.  Our school day will begin at 8:15 a.m. each day.  This will give those students not wanting to eat breakfast a chance to put their things away, do a little reading or get organized for the day.  Breakfast will still be served in every classroom at 8:10 a.m.  There is no cost to families so be sure your child arrives early enough to enjoy this time with their teachers and classmates.  It is a great way to get your child's day started and will help them perform in the classroom.

I hope you get a chance to spend time in the great outdoors with family and friends in the last few weeks of summer!!
