As we get ready for Thanksgiving, I’d like to say thank you on behalf of REES PTA to Tami, Pegg, Jessica Lewis, Suja Amir, Katie Caples, Eva Cauble, Teri Curry, Emily Pierce, Megha Nayak, Andi DeVelin, and Kim Poulton for all their help in making the Fall Festival a success this year. Even with moving the event inside, we all had so much fun!
You may not know this, but with all the programs, events, and little extras the PTA provides for the students, teachers, and staff—there are many volunteers behind the scenes helping us along the way. Many times they are not out in front getting the accolades, but I wanted to say thank you to all the PTA volunteers who spend many hours making copies, helping in the front office, lunch room and classrooms, running Box Tops contests, Hospitality, Magic Mailbox, Birthday Board, Yearbook, attending evening meetings across town, our student directory, e-newsletter and website. THANK YOU! Without your help, our PTA would just not run smoothly.
The Eagle Fund
We are just over $12,000 toward our $16,000 goal. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far! Last year we added the Apex Fun Run to offset a shortfall of donations to our Eagle Fund, but we did NOT schedule it for this year. It is critical that we raise the remaining $3,600 that we budgeted for in order to continue to provide all the events, programs, technology and school improvements necessary for our school. Please consider donating to our Eagle Fund. Donations can be made online via PayPal or by downloading this form.
We are currently 39 people shy of reaching our 100% membership goal. Please, if you have not already joined the PTA you can download your membership form here.
REES PTA Meeting and 5th Grade Performance
Please come out to our next PTA General Membership Meeting on Dec. 8th at 6:30 p.m. for our 5th Graders’ Performance.

REES PTA Nominating Committee
Flyers will go home the first week of December seeking members to serve on the 2016-2017 Nominating Committee. The Nominating Committee will select a slate of officers for the 2017-2018 REES PTA Executive Committee. Please consider serving on the Nominating Committee. Serving as a leader on the REES PTA is a very rewarding way to volunteer and be involved at your child’s school.
Many thanks again for all your support of REES PTA, and I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends, and safe travels to those venturing out of town for the Thanksgiving break. See you at our next Spirit Night at Cheeburger Cheeburger on Dec. 12th!
