THIS WEEK IN HUMANITIES...

Here's your news and information for the week of October 23

GIVING WITH AN EYE TO THE FUTURE...

We realize that from Northern California to Puerto Rico, there seems always to be a call to open your wallets.  We are in the fortunate position of raising a future generation of problem solvers.  Your generous donations, and continuing donations, help cover basics and elevate their education.  We want them engaged, right?  We're eventually going to depend on them, right?  It's almost selfish... 

• Give Online through Friend of Reed, making sure to select "HUMANITIES" from the General Donation drop down menu

• Give by Check by simply filling out the Annual Giving Form, then return to the Main Office.

TEXAS HOLD 'EM- PRIZES NEEDED!

Our first annual Texas Hold 'Em Poker Tournament is being planned for January 20, 2018 and we need prizes to be won. Are you able to donate tickets to a show or event, a dinner out, electronics, gift cards, a cool gadget or technology you need your child to explain to you?  Some other cool thing?  If so, please send them to our worthy cause! Contact Lisette to coordinate at: lisrey23@yahoo.com

Wanna help? Come join us at the committee meeting October 26. Email Jen Swierad to get more info or the join the team at: jenswierad@gmail.com

CAREER DAY

If you are tired of your kids rolling their eyes at you, Walter Reed is filled with classrooms of students ready to be intrigued by and interested in your day.  And you don't need to be an astronaut or a basketball legend.  Will you please join the 70 or so professionals who come to speak to our students about their job/calling/nine-to-five on Thursday, Nov 2 from 8am - 10:15? Sign up with any of our Walter Reed counselors by calling 818-487-7600.  This is a fun and enjoyable event you'll love having supported.
