PROGRAMS & EVENTS HOSTED BY PTSA & FoR

 

Middle school is a charming, perplexing, frustrating, wonderful time in life. One of our top goals is to bring Walter Reed families together in fun ways that support students, families and school during this critical time. Here are some of the ways we hope to do that this year. We hope you'll join us! 

 

Beautification Day

FoR has been working hard to on some major campus improvement projects!! Let's continue to show our campus some love! Come out and help clean the campus, plant in our garden, and make Reed a safe and beautiful environment for our students! 

 

Saturday, November 5 from 8am–noon.

 

Big projects need a lot of stuff -- Please help out by bringing or donating as much as you can. Another way to help is to donate your gardening crew for an hour or two - we need as much help as possible.
