    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

  • MAP Assessments - October 13th -October 28th

    Hello Families of G.H. Reid Elementary! 

    This is Ms. Winston, this year's Assistant Principal and Testing Coordinator. I am excited to inform you that MAP testing will begin Tuesday October 13th through Wednesday October 28th for students in grades 3-5. Students with tablets will not test at this time. However they will be afforded the opportunity once Chromebooks arrive. Students with tablets will work independently on teacher assigned activities during the testing sessions. It is very important that your child tests without support , as this test is just to inform teachers of the areas that your child needs additional support with. Students will not be graded nor penalized at any time as a result of this assessment. Don't worry if the questions become too difficult for your child to answer. This test is adaptive, which means that the questions become more difficult as students answer correctly. For more information about MAP assessements (Click Here).  Thank you in advance for your support!

     
    Las pruebas de MAP comenzarán la próxima semana a partir del Martes 13 al 28 de Octubre/2020). La evaluación debe ser completada por los/as estudiantes de 3-5 grado sin ayuda alguna. El propósito de esta evaluación es que los/as profesores/as tengan una mejor idea de cómo pueden apoyar a los/as estudiantes en su nivel educacional. Durante la evaluación las preguntas se volverán más difíciles de contestar y no habría ningún problema que el/la estudiante deje el 50% de preguntas. Los/as estudiantes no serán calificados ni penalizados en ningún momento como resultado de esta evaluación.  Los/as estudiantes que tengan tabletas no podrán realizar la prueba, se les brindará la oportunidad de realizar la prueba una vez que lleguen los Chromebook.  Trabajarán de forma independiente en las actividades asignadas por el/la profesor/a durante las sesiones de prueba.
    Si desea saber más al respecto, puede accesar a la página de internet de las Escuelas Públicas de Richmond a través del enlace https://www.rvaschools.net/maptesting 
    Gracias

"RPS Direct" Emails from Superintendent Kamras

  • RPS Direct Update - October 27, 2020

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Great news! About 7,000 Chromebooks from our June (!) order of 10,000 have shipped and are scheduled to arrive later this week! Once they're here, our technology vendor will configure them for student use and then deliver them directly to schools. If all goes smoothly, this means we should be able to begin swapping out tablets late next week. Please keep an eye out for distribution details from your student's school. Thank you for your patience! I also want to take this opportunity to thank the many teachers, principals, and families who reached out to share their very thoughtful concerns about using letter grades at the elementary level during our virtual semester. I'm happy to share that I'll be recommending to the School Board on Monday that we switch to E (Exceeds Expectations), S (Satisfactory), N (Needs Improvement), and U (Unsatisfactory) for K-5 students during the first semester. I'll share more details about this at our meeting on Monday. Again, thank you for the very helpful feedback. Enormous gratitude also goes to Senator Tim Kaine for speaking to a George Wythe government class today about his RVA roots. He charged our students to get involved and make their voices heard, especially right now. He also shared how important bilingualism has been for his work (he's one of only 3 Senators who are fluent in Spanish). We're so grateful to Senator Kaine for his leadership and his support of RPS!
