Dear Reedy Creek Family,
I hope you had an enjoyable break, and for those who celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope it was special in every way. As we head into December and Winter Break, I am thankful for our truly amazing staff, scholars, parents, and greater community. Our staff continues to dedicate their efforts on "It's not about me…it's about we" and living our mission, which is to provide high quality learning experiences for all scholars in order to provide them with strong academic and social foundations so they can develop into adults who contribute positively to their community.
This past month I was so happy to see so many of you celebrate your child's success this past quarter by attending the first quarter awards ceremony.
I want to encourage you to please attend our Evening of the Arts on December 7th from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm. This is a great opportunity to see what our scholars have been working on in Dance, Art, and Music.
Please use PowerSchool to keep up with your child's grades. You can use your child's login information or get a parent login from the school office. Please also visit our webpage. http://schools.cms.k12.nc.us/reedycreekES/Pages/Parent-Information.aspx
As we have just completed the district-wide implementation of the new Mastery Grading K-2 Report Card for the First Quarter Marking Period, we would like to take time to collect feedback and suggestions for revisions. As with last year's pilot, all suggestions are carefully reviewed and considered for improvement in order to best support teachers and inform parents of their child's mastery of grade level skills. CMS wants to gather feedback from as many parents as possible. Please visit this link to give yours. https://goo.gl/forms/ihN63oGHBoezTNLe2
Please continue to get your scholar to school by 8am and send in notes for absences.
Finally, I want to encourage everyone to participate in our 2nd Annual Reedy Creek Cares Initiative. Please read below to find out information pertaining to four charitable partnerships happening at Reedy Creek this holiday season. We have part-nered with several organizations to pro-mote a sense of giving during this time of year.
