Homeless and animal shelter donations

Hi there,
I am asking the students to help the other academies with the collection of canned food for the homeless (non perishable thanksgiving type foods or gift cards) and old blankets, or towels or pet food for a local animal shelter. I think it is important that young people learn to help others and this is always a good time of year to make it a teachable moment. If you can reinforce this idea with you child and have them bring in any of the items below before next Wednesday that would be great. It is so appreciated. It would be great if each one of my 220 students brought in only one item. How great would that be!
Happy Thanksgiving to all. May you enjoy the week off (starting in a week!!)
Ms Szymanski
Items needed
Old towels, blankets
pet food

Canned veggies like beans,corn, onion topping
stuffing mix
instant mashed potatoes
chicken broth
gift cards to grocery stores

Thank you everyone!!

I just want to give a big thank you to all the parents and students who either worked on or came to support our Reeds Got talent show. Each year i think I am not going to do it anymore and then when it comes to the night of the show I am so proud of all the students. I laugh, cry and most of all am happy that I am able to give the kids an opportunity to experience the life in the theater. From my stage crew to talent, they all tell me how they didnt realize how much work it takes to put on a show. I think that is the great part of this all.
I am also thrilled to see the support from the audience members for their peers and how much they cheered and have a good time. We try for positivity and I think that happens each year.
My fellow teachers are also such wonderful people to put themselves out there like that for the students. They all know how important it is for students to see us as real people who can also be silly and have a good time. Plus to be honest we have a blast too! they are already asking what our act will be next year.
Thank you parents for EVERYTHING YOU DO!! The lobby looked wonderful, the food is excellent and you guys are just fantastic. I would not even begin to do this without your help. You are so appreciated and I am very very thankful.
So as we move on with the rest of the year, I want to send my thanks to all of you. Please thank any of the participating teachers as well. It is hard to get them to stay on a Friday night, and they did so willingly and with lots of love.
thank you Ms Szymanski
