MANY HANDS MAKE LIGHT WORK

So many of you have stepped up to make this year so successful. With several 8th grade parents “graduating” from Reed, consider how YOU might lend a hand. Humanities Academy has a strong tradition that we’d love to pass along! Here is what you can do:

• Communicate - Write our Newsletter, update our website and post on FB.

• Cool Committees - Hospitality, Events, Overnight Field Trips- there’s an area for your to make a difference.

Manage Money - We bring it in, and spend it on kids. What could be better than that?!

• Take Notes - as Secretary you’ll organize and keep our business transparent. So important.

Organize + Direct - Be the master controller(s)! It's an amazing experience… one you won’t regret.

POETRY

Last week’s poetry workshop with 7/8th grade was such a positive experience, with the visiting Poet’s Society noting how articulate and emotionally strong our students are. A compilation of the poems our students wrote will be created for us, and could be formed into a book. Interested in making that happen? Email us at: webmaster@reedfoha.org
