If parents would like to purchase lunch from the cafeteria the cost is $3.00. If parents plan on attending, you must RSVP to Mrs. Richardson in the office — (801) 489-7828 — by the Friday before. Please plan on attending lunch with your child during their lunch time.
I wanted to let you know of an amazing opportunity that our Middle School students will have this Thursday, September 11th. Two nationally known authors, Bree Despain and Colleen Houck, are coming to speak to students from 1:30-2:30. They will be speaking about their experiences with writing and will tell students about their two new books, Tiger’s Promise (a prequel to the Tiger’s Curse Series) and The Shadow Prince (Into the Dark, book 1). The authors will be available afterwards to autograph books for anyone who is interested. If you are already familiar with these authors and have books at home that you are interested in having signed, please send them with your middle school student on Thursday. When I spoke to Mrs. Houck it sounded as though she was bringing a lot of books to give away to students (who might want them signed). Please be aware and plan a few minutes extra for carpool just in case the autograph line is longer than expected.
This will be wonderful night where parents, students, teachers and the community can enjoy activities together while raising funds that will directly benefit the students of Reagan Academy. The money that we raise will go to support activities such as Red Ribbon Week, White Ribbon Week, the Science Fair, the birthday table, staff appreciation, and other PVO supported activities. Feel free to invite your friends and neighbors, and “share” this great activity. The following pricing information will help you plan for a great family night out. Games and rides can either be purchased individually with tickets, or by buying the appropriate wristband. Food can be purchased with tickets or cash.
Come join the Reagan Academy Administration and meet your new PVO board members tomorrow. This is a public forum where you can share your concerns and ideas to make our school great! Also, you can find out what activities are coming up and get your questions answered. We would love as much parental involvement as possible. Parents frequently bring younger siblings to this meeting, who enjoy the donuts as well. Instead of just dropping off your children, park the car and come in and participate. The meeting is held in the drop down room just as you enter the school. This meeting is held the first Wednesday of each month.
If you haven’t done so yet, check out Reagan Academy’s new website! You may subscribe to the calendar to get timely updates. Upcoming events are listed on the front page as well. It’s easier than ever to communicate with teachers and staff. If you’re looking for class supply lists, see the drop-down menu under “parents.”
The Parent Meeting will be from 5:30-6:00, and Back to School Night will begin thereafter and conclude at 7:30. Come find out about the great things our school has been doing, ways you can get involved, and meet the incredible Reagan Academy staff.
As the new school year quickly approaches, we are excited to begin holding Cross Country Team practices. Inclusion on the team is based on willingness to work hard rather than on current ability level. Our first practice will start the first day of school Aug.19th at Reagan Academy so bring your running shoes and clothes. Practices will be held immediately after school for one hour every Mon. Tues. Thurs. and Fri. Be sure and register at Back-To-School Night in Mrs. Ahlborn’s Orchestra room.
WHAT: Cross Country Team practice
WHEN: Every Mon. Tues. Thurs. and Fri. for one hour after school
WHERE: Reagan Academy and surroundings
WHY: Because it’s fun! OK, we like to win too, and have established a history of a competitive, award-winning team. We also love the side-benefits of this XC team such as increased self-confidence that comes from doing hard things!
THE 1ST DAY: Signed waiver and disclosure documents will need to be signed by a parent, along with a $35 check made out to Reagan Academy, and a great attitude.
WHAT TO WEAR: Good running shoes and athletic clothing.
We are pleased to welcome Julie Ahlborn to our coaching staff. She is eager to be a part of our XC team! Please contact a coach if you have any questions.
We hope to see you next week!

As crazy as it sounds with us just being out for summer, many of you will start bargain shopping for uniforms in the next few weeks. Last year we saw an increase in the number of dress code violations and wanted to be clear in our expectations for the upcoming school year. With that in mind we wanted to give out some tips to make your shopping easier:
-Classrooms can get colder during the winter months and students will want to wear jackets, sweatshirts, etc. in the building. These jackets must be solid Red, Navy, or White and free from any logos with the exception of the school logo.
-Remember pants may neither be tight fitting nor excessively baggy. In addition, they may not be made of any “jean” or “jean look alike” material regardless of color. Some styles have shifted and we have seen an increase in tighter fitting pants, jeggings, etc. These are not considered appropriate school attire.
-Undergarments should not be visible at any times. The exception would be a “plain” white undershirt that does not extend excessively below the bottom of an approved top. Only leggings that are approved bottom colors may be worn and only underneath skirts that extend a minimum of 2 inches above the knee.
Remember that our uniform is accessible on our website and that staff will be here during the week all summer long. If you have a question or concern, please get confirmation before you buy.
