Gold Rush Day is here!!

May 30, 2023

Dear E-2 Families,

It’s finally here! Thanks to Reed family volunteers, tomorrow is GOLD RUSH DAY!!

Please remind your child to:

•Dress for being outside all day.

•Bring a hat, if they have one.

•If your child wears sunscreen, please make sure they have that, as well.

A few students asked if they could dress up. I don’t see any reason why they shouldn’t, unless the costume/outfit is delicate, inappropriate for outdoor activity, or would be regretted if damaged. I leave that to your discretion. 

Please reach out with all of your questions, comments, suggestions, and concerns at

Science Fair, Chocolate Fundraiser, A Great Class

May 16, 2023

Dear Families,

A quick update:

–Wednesday, May 17th from 9-12 in the Reed Cafeteria. Your children will show off their BioSITE presentations as well as explore other classes’ presentations and various intriguing science activities.

Your children did an amazing job pulling off presentations quickly. They will use their insights from this process to design another science project for our class’ benefit. Stay tuned!

(PS- I apologize for my error on the Homework cover page: Again, the Science Fair is on Wednesday this week, not Tuesday. The class will have student choice time after they visit their TK buddies tomorrow to make up for any stress I may have caused them!)

–Chocolate fundraiser–you can still join in! 

No money needs to be paid up front.

Money is not due until June 1st.

Chocolate can still be requested: The 15th was a very soft deadline.

Please reach out for more information  if you’d like to support this fundraiser for the 4th graders’ science camp next year.

–I have been thinking lately about how close we are to the end of the year, and wanted to share how much I have appreciated and enjoyed this class. Your children are an outstanding group, and I will miss them!!

As always, please reach out with questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions at

Spring Concert Tomorrow

May 8, 2023

Dear families,

The Reed Spring concert for Upper Grade students will be held in our cafeteria from 9:30-10:10 AM tomorrow, May 9th. 

Please encourage your child to either “dress nicely” or wear their walkathon T-shirt.

We practiced both songs in my class today and during our regular music time. If all of our children stay focused, their performance should go really well!

If you are not able to attend the concert, check Mr Ramezane’s principal’s message at the end of the week for photos of the event. 

Thank you for your attention.

CAASPP Continues, BioSite Wednesday, and Fund Raising

May 1, 2023

Dear E-2 families,

I can’t believe May is here! I feel like this has been the quickest year ever. ;o)

Just a few updates today:

•CAASPP testing continues this week with the Math CAT on Tuesday and Performance Task on Wednesday. Please remind your child to charge their Chromebook each night, sleep well, and eat breakfast before they come to school. 

The tests are untimed, and students have as many opportunities as they need to complete them. Makeup sessions continue throughout this week at minimum for students who haven’t completed the assessments or who have been absent. 

•Fourth graders return to BioSite on Wednesday, May 3rd (yes, after the Math PT) for their last visit of the year. We do need parent drivers! If you are available and willing, please reach out to me at 

•We started fundraising for next year’s Science Camp with a collaboration with the San Francisco Giants; next is chocolate sales. A message form Mrs. Slaugh:

“4th grade families,

To get a jump start on fundraising for next year’s Science Camp we are going to sell World’s Finest Chocolates from May 15th-June 1st. We would like your support in this endeavor. We were hoping that each student could sell between 2-4 boxes of chocolate. Each box has 60 bars at $2.00 each. All the money raised will be shared equally and will go towards reducing the Science Camp costs for ALL 4th graders. We will be sending home a permission slip sometime this week.


A final note: The Unhomework this week is for information and entertainment purposes and I do not expect it back on Friday! That said, if your child would like me to check it or display the art, they may certainly turn it in!

That’s it for now! Families, please reach out anytime with your suggestions, comments, concerns, or questions.
