We are excited to announce the final book fair of the year is coming up soon! Mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 6-Friday May 9, to come visit the A+ book fair in the library. A+ has a great variety of books that are perfect for summer reading. The fair will run from 7:45am-3:30pm Tuesday through Thursday and 7:45am-1:30pm on Friday. We will also be open in the evening on Wednesday May 7th from 5:30-9:00pm, during the spring choir concert.
As always, a great book fair is all about having fantastic volunteers. We have shifts available for providing treats for the teacher preview, as well as setting up, taking down, and staffing the book fair. This is a great time, and a fun way, to get in those volunteer hours before the end of the year.

April is National Poetry Month! Mrs. Peterson has decided to host a school-wide poetry contest. All poetry that is entered into the contest will be published in a book that will be housed in the “Reagan Academy” area of the library, where other books created by Reagan Academy students are already available to be checked out. There will be a special place in the book reserved for winning poems. If your child is interested in participating in the contest and in having a poem included in the 2014 Reagan Academy Poetry Book, there are two categories your child may enter. Please refer to the attached document for all contest information, rules, and permission slips.

Part of what makes Reagan Academy great is our Parent Volunteer Organization (PVO). The contributions of this organization and the volunteers they manage is immeasurable. We have three openings on the PVO Board for the 2014-2015 school year. The positions include, president-elect (2 year position), secretary, and secretary-elect (2 year position).
Members of the PVO Board work closely with school administration to facilitate the running of school activities, organize parent volunteers, and attend monthly PVO meetings. Interested parents may send a brief summary of their background, the contribution that they feel they could make to the school, and the position that they are interested in running for to Mrs. Shade at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for bios is Friday, April 18, 2014. PVO Board elections will be held April 21-25, 2014.
Reagan Academy is throwing a Thank You Party for parents who have contributed their 40 volunteer hours. Mark your calendars for Tuesday April 29 from 1:00-2:00 at the Springville Civic Center for an Ice Cream Party. Make sure you record your volunteer hours to join the celebration.
Did you know recording your volunteer hours can help the school obtain grant money? Reagan Academy expects 40 hours of family volunteer service per year. We appreciate all that you do to help our students and school be the best! Email your total volunteer hours to the PVO at email@example.com or log them in at http://tinyurl.com/kgwsysb
