									As we begin the new 2011 – 2012 school year here at Reedy Creek Elementary, I would like to welcome
the families of new kindergarten students and rising 1 st – 5th graders. We are truly building a
community at Reedy Creek Elementary.

We encourage any parent or guardian to participate in any PTA activity or projects. The power to help
your child grow and thrive rests with you. As a PTA we are here to give your child a leg up and assist in
that growth process. Volunteers are the heart of the PTA and we appreciate any time you may be able
to spare!
