Principal's Message


  • Principal Dear Families of G. H. Reid Elementary School,

    It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the G. H. Reid Family! As your principal, I am delighted to work with our dedicated staff and community to help provide an excellent educational experience for our students. We are committed to ensuring that your child(ren) receive the best support to learn and grow.

    My vision for G. H. Reid is to provide students with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the world around them. Our goal is to provide a nurturing environment that meets the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially.

    Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. There are numerous opportunities for parental involvement at Reid. Parents are invited to participate in our Annual Back To School Night, Family Nights, STEM Fair, Career Day, Parent Teacher Conferences, student performances, fieldtrips, celebrations, etc. Monthly G. H. Reid updates will be posted on our website as well as sent home with our students. We encourage our parents to take advantage of every opportunity to support our students by continuous communication with teachers and staff. Our partnership is so important to the success of our students.

    We thank you for the opportunity to work with you and your child. It is our goal to provide a safe and productive learning environment. I encourage you to stop in or call me to share ideas, concerns, or questions. I wish your family, and especially your student, great success this school year.

    Sincerely,

    Angela Delaney, M.Ed.
    Principal

  • Good evening G.H. Reid Families.

    I'm sure you are aware by now that Richmond Public Schools will continue with virtual learning for the remainder of the school year as we want to make sure our students and staff are safe and not exposed to Covid-19 in the public school setting. By now, all of G. H. Reid's students should have necessary technology to engage in virtual learning as well as school supplies. If there are any students who need to exchange his/her tablet for a Chromebook, we encourage you to do so this week. Currently, staff is available to assist families Monday through Friday from 9:00am-1:00pm. For the safety of our staff members as Covid-19 cases increase, we will only be in the building once weekly on Mondays, beginning January 4, 2021. We will have staff members available to answer phone calls and take messages. Tech support will be available to help with technology needs and can be reached at 804-780-7880. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we must make adjustments in order to keep everyone safe. Thank you for your understanding.

    Our students are invited to participate in a school spirit week (optional participation) this week by wearing their tacky sweaters, holiday socks, Santa Claus hats, Reindeer Ears, jingle bells and any appropriate gear to show spirit. Remember, participation is by choice. 

    This week is our final week before our Winter Break, which begins on Monday, December 21, 2020 and ends on Friday, January 1, 2021. Our students will return to school virtually on Monday, January 4, 2021. The school building will be closed during the break. We wish all of you Season's Greetings and a Happy New Year!!!

     

    Buenas noches G. H. Reid Familias.

    Estoy seguro de que usted es consciente de que las Escuelas Públicas de Richmond continuarán con el aprendizaje virtual por el resto del año escolar, ya que queremos asegurarnos de que nuestros estudiantes y personal estén seguros y no expuestos a Covid-19 en el entorno de la escuela pública. Por ahora, todos los estudiantes de G. H. Reid deberían tener la tecnología necesaria para participar en el aprendizaje virtual, así como en los útiles escolares. Si hay algún estudiante que necesite cambiar su tableta por un Chromebook, te animamos a hacerlo esta semana. Actualmente, el personal está disponible para ayudar a las familias de lunes a viernes de 9:00am-1:00pm. Para la seguridad de nuestros miembros del personal a medida que aumenten los casos de Covid-19, solo estaremos en el edificio una vez por semana los lunes, a partir del 4 de enero de 2021. Tendremos miembros del personal disponibles para responder llamadas telefónicas y recibir mensajes. El soporte técnico estará disponible para ayudar con las necesidades de tecnología y se puede llegar al 804-780-7880. Nos disculpamos de antemano por cualquier inconveniente que esto pueda causar, pero debemos hacer ajustes con el fin de mantener a todos a salvo. Gracias por su comprensión.

    Nuestros estudiantes están invitados a participar en una semana de espíritu escolar (participación opcional) esta semana usando sus suéteres pegajosos, calcetines de vacaciones, sombreros de Papá Noel, orejas de reno, campanas de jingle y cualquier equipo apropiado para mostrar el espíritu. Recuerde, la participación es por elección.

    Esta semana es nuestra última semana antes de nuestras vacaciones de invierno, que comienza el lunes 21 de diciembre de 2020 y termina el viernes 1 de enero de 2021. Nuestros estudiantes regresarán a la escuela prácticamente el lunes 4 de enero de 2021. El edificio de la escuela permanecerá cerrado durante el descanso. Les deseamos a todos los Saludos de la Temporada y un Feliz Año Nuevo!!!

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - January 27 (PM), 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, I want to extend a huge thank you to my guests on RPS Live! tonight: Principal Anderson (Blackwell ES), Principal Powell (Cary ES), Principal Hartsfield (MLK PS), Principal London (Henderson MS), and Principal Murray (Marshall HS). If you missed it, I strongly encourage you to catch the video on the RPS Facebook page. It's like watching a TED talk on leadership - but even better. Please join me in expressing our profound gratitude to these extraordinary leaders, and the many others in RPS they represent! As you might recall, in December we celebrated Inclusive Schools Week and we asked our students to submit a t-shirt design to promote inclusion. I'm thrilled to announce the winner: Bella Brownlee, a 4th grade student at Linwood Holton Elementary School!
