Dear Reams Road Parents and Students,

Welcome to our favorite school in the county! As we journey through the 2019-20 school year, our theme is “Work Hard. Be Kind. Inspire dREAMS! The dREAMS is indeed written correctly as the letters stand for Diversity, Respect, Empowerment, Achievement, Motivation, and Success. We hope that you will consider how you can support your child and our students in these traits and goals. We will continue to focus on leadership as well. Our students experience opportunities to be leaders through our Student Council Association, Safety Patrol, Little Literacy Leaders, Yearbook, and more as well as in their own classrooms.

Our challenge this year is our new learning environment in the modular buildings on the A.M. Davis campus while our school is rebuilt. However, it is a beautiful, connected community where we can continue to learn and grow. Our PTA has generously supported our move through additional funds. We look forward to partnering with our hosting school and with all of our parents and community this year. We will return to our campus in the fall of 2021.

Our expectations include students taking charge of their own learning through daily reading, setting goals, and making positive choices. We believe all of our students are capable of high achievement in reading, math, writing, science, and social studies. We will focus on the county’s values of Integrity, Teamwork, Equity, and Ingenuity. Teamwork is a character trait which has always been important because in school and life you are always part of a team!

Our academic successes this past year include growth in Science and Math on the SOL assessment. Our goals include a continued focus on Reading and meeting the needs of our subgroups. We are proud of how hard our students work and of their focus on growth. We see this consistently through MAP and other assessments. We will continue to provide Project Based Learning (PBL) opportunities for our students through research, driving questions, and presentations.

Reams Road Elementary is a very diverse school-wide Title I school serving approximately 500 students including those who have special education needs, English as a Second Language needs, and socio-economic needs. Our students receive extra support when needed from specialists through Title I. We are often able to also provide resources such as school supplies, summer school, and additional personnel to benefit all of our students. Parents are also an integral part of our school.

Our website can keep you up to date with happenings. As you can see, Reams Road Elementary is not just about academics; we seek to serve and support the whole child. We invite parents and the community to attend our PTA events and special occasions held throughout the year. It indeed takes a village to help our students succeed. So, please volunteer to helpwhich has when you can. We especially look forward to having even more father figures participating in the Watch D.O.G.S. program. Let us know if you have any questions or concerns at any time. Feel free to visit our school and check out what makes us special.

Sincerely, Principal Jodi Seitz
