Dear Walter Reed Families,
FRIENDS OF REED (FoR) IS YOU!
It’s up to all of us to invest in our kids and make sure they get a world-class education, no matter what SLC your student is in. While dedicated teachers bring strong academics to each child, our booster club (a registered 501c3) fundraises to support the administration's goals and initiatives in providing the best version of the defined curriculum. So please take a moment to opt into our newsletter and to subscribe to our official Facebook page.
• Friends of Reed booster club page https://www.facebook.com/FriendsofReed
• Sign up for Friends of Reed newsletters (see below)
Opting in will keep you informed of our annual giving campaign, notify you of our meeting dates (which we hope you attend), and engage you on how you can pitch in to our many fundraising opportunities.
WHO ARE WE?
A powerful, non-profit, parent volunteer group that works collaboratively with the WRMS administration and PTSA. Though we have no official capacity to influence the administration’s policies, FoR is dedicated to the enrichment of every student at WRMS. We’re the fun, off-campus parent group with the checkbook.
WHAT DO WE DO?
With the help of parent volunteers like you, we create and organize school wide fundraisers that raise money to fill the budget gap that LAUSD does not cover. Your donations help bring middle school to life through technology upgrades, grade-level local field trips and so much more!
WHAT DO WE NEED?
Namely YOUR SUPPORT. Being involved in Friends of Reed, your student benefits from the collective work of many. There are many ways families can contribute, we call them the three T’s:
•TIME - Attend Friends of Reed meetings. You’ll be in the know.
•TALENT - Join the Exec. Board or a Committee. You will help shape the course and direction of Friends of Reed while making lifelong friends.
•TREASURE - Donate to our annual giving campaign. The 2020-2021 school year promises to be the most challenging in our history, and WRMS will need a strong FoR more than ever.
We look forward to meeting you and working alongside so many familiar faces. Most of all we look forward to this next chapter in your student’s life and wish you all a year to remember.
Remember, it takes all of us to do a part, and in doing so, you (and your student) will gain immensely!
All the best,
President, Friends of Reed
