From PTSA President, Betsy Keller....
Greetings! As our school and our PTSA work to adjust to the new challenges of the school year, the PTSA is happy to relaunch its e-newsletter!  Our daily lives look and feel very different than last year, and now more than ever, it is important that we support our students, faculty, staff, and RJR families.
The Reynolds PTSA is a very active organization and we are always looking for new members!  There are many ways to participate, ranging from leading a committee to simply telling a friend about the newsletter or our social media posts.  Some work is behind the scenes, while other volunteers give tours and answer questions at resource drive-throughs.  
Follow-us on Facebook and Instagram.  The school website PTSA pages are also full of information.  In the coming weeks, be on the look out for information about PTSA membership!
Please join us Tuesday, October 6 for our fall General PTSA meeting via Zoom. The link can be found below.
Thank you for your time and interest in the Reynolds PTSA.  Have a great weekend and Go Demons!
