You may also follow-up with them by email: carpool@reedptsa.org

Pick up & Drop off locations (gates, crosswalks, etc.)
Landale & Colfax gate: crossing guard on duty

Backpacks/textbooks/lockers
To accommodate heavy books, a rolling backpack is useful. 6th grade lockers are not near the 6th grade bungalows, so are difficult to access between classes.
Books can be copied & bound into segments, so students don’t have to carry the entire book to school. Self-copying at a copy/print shop is suggested. Many teachers have a classroom set of textbooks to use, so that students can leave their textbook at home for homework use.

 

8th Grade Leadership Camp

FOR-Humanities is excited to bring a new parent-organized retreat to our 8th Grade Class this year at the WOLF Camp in Malibu over the weekend of May 18-20th. This 3 day / 2 night trip will focus on valuable leadership and team building skills. Through fun and challenging activities, students will celebrate their middle school years and bond with their friends as they get ready to move on to new adventures. The oceanside location at Wolf Camp features private beach access, challenging high and low ropes courses, a 65-foot climbing wall, beautiful tide pools, outdoor amphitheater, Olympic size swimming pool and an archery range. The camp covers over 120 acres with upscale cabins nestled off the Pacific Coast Highway. A detailed itinerary of activities will follow soon. More information about this camp can be found online at http://www.wolfadventures.org/hess-kramer/

Remember FOR-HA this Giving Season

Dear Families,

As 2016 draws to a close, many of you are considering your charitable donations for the year.  We’d love for you to consider making a donation to Friends of Humanities Academy.  Your donation goes directly to helping your child’s teachers make the classroom more interesting, challenging, and more engaging. FORHA donations are the reason that our kids have laptops in the classroom, overnight field trips to Pali Camp and Nature Bridge, UpFront and Scope Magazines for classroom use, the list goes on and on.  We need your help to continue to provide this unique middle school experience for these unique Humanities students.

FORHA works closely with other groups at Walter Reed, such as Music and Friends of Reed, which benefit all students at Reed.  We encourage you to consider donating to these groups as well as to FORHA.

Thank you, have a wonderful holiday season, and we’ll see you in the New Year!

~Your Friends at FORHA
