Reavis 4th grade students in Mrs. Martinez's class did a great job researching with technology in celebration of Black History Month. Students chose to write about influential people in history such as Frederick Douglass, Jackie Robinson, and Martin Luther King Jr. They utilized their research as well as creativity to create poster boards for a classroom presentation and display.
Thank you to all of the Reavis 3rd/4th grade students, teachers, and families for participating in this year's annual "December Round the World" Holiday Concert! A GREAT BIG thank you to the District Elementary Music teacher Mrs. Stephens for preparing the students and providing a great opportunity to showcase their musical talent.
On Tuesday, November 27, Reavis fourth grade students enjoyed "Agriculture in the Classroom" presented by Mrs. DeLaurentis. The program is sponsored by the Cook County Farm Bureau. In addition to learning about the science of growing crops, students enjoyed hands on activities, explored the many careers in Agribusiness, and connected vocabulary words such as hydroponics and container gardening to the E.A.R.T.H. Program.
Hundreds of Reavis students and their family members enjoyed a great night at the annual PTA Trunk or Treat event. Parents, teachers and community members decorated their trunks and passed out candy, toys, comic books and memories to students and their siblings. The PTA also provided fresh popcorn to everyone that attended. A BIG THANK YOU to the Reavis PTA and all who participated in helping to host this event for our school community.
