Reavis students enjoyed their first day of school as they met with their teachers and fellow classmates virtually and explored the potential of our online platform. Here's kindergartener Ryan Mayorga showing his #RoadrunnerPride in Mrs. Woods-Simmons's class!
Computers, books, hats, and a puppet show: this is virtual learning done right with Mrs. Woods-Simmons at Reavis Elementary School! #158Strong #RoadrunnerPride
Reavis students, families, and staff enjoyed the opportunity to meet briefly in person during our student material pick-up day. In addition to parents and students being able to meet and greet each other, all students received bags that included classroom information, textbooks, manipulatives, curriculum materials and books to keep for their family library. We are looking forward to meeting virtually during our open house on Monday, August 24th though our Microsoft Teams platform. #RoadrunnerPride
The Reavis staff and Director of Student Services Dr. Carter enjoyed seeing our students and families at our end-of-year reverse car parade. Thank you to all of the families for everything you do for your children! We miss everyone and are looking forward to the fall. The entire Reavis staff wishes you a safe and happy summer! #RoadrunnerPride

Reavis students and staff met at the weekly Friday PTA Zoom session sponsored by the Library mascot, "Sparkle" the unicorn.

Together the group shared their recent experiences and books they have read while Sparkle planted a radish seed with the hopes of transplanting it to the Reavis garden soon. #RoadrunnerPride

District 158 has been safely completing our donation of 50 refurbished laptop computers to families in need during the school closure. The picture below is from Reavis last week. This initiative allows more students to remain engaged in learning activities and access educational technology. Computers are being donated at all five schools. Thanks to our #158Strong Board of Education for approving this!
Reavis staff give a warm smile and greeting to all of their students as they collaborate via Zoom on creative ways we can help and reach out during this school closure period. All the staff at Reavis would like to take this opportunity to give their best wishes to the families that we miss ever so much. We can't wait to see all of your smiles when we return to school! #RoadrunnerPride
