Morning Drop Off
Morning Drop Off in our back parking lot has become congested into the main roadway. To alleviate this problem, we thank you for pulling as far ahead as possible to let your child out in the pull-off lane beside the sidewalk. The small circle is for handicap drop off only. For safety reasons, students should not be dropped off in the main parking lot thoroughfare to cross traffic. Thank you!
Please watch our school drop-off video at bit.ly/rbmsamdropoff to learn more.
The RBMS School Store is open for business on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Make sure you bring in your change for a great bargain!!
40 Book Challenge
Students were challenged to read 40 books throughout the school year - that means 10 books per quarter...... are you on track? We now will be posting your progress! And if you enjoy reading a nice long novel, over 350 pages will count as 2 books! So, with the beginning of Quarter 2, pick up your IR book and read on!
Please remember that while we are working on report cards, access to PowerSchool is shut down. Access returns once report cards are run.

RB ABC NewsHello Reeds Brook parents! We had a very busy fall season and we are looking forward to winter sports starting up!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the very generous folks who donated items for soccer concessions. Thanks to you, RBABC made more than $500 over our short season of home games!
Our Halloween Dance was incredibly successful and from the sound of it, the kids had a blast! Profits from the Halloween Dance (both admissions and the concessions) totaled more than $1600.00. Many thanks to the hard-working parents who donated their time to help organize, decorate, set-up, chaperone and clean up after - all the kids that we spoke to said it was lots of fun!
Our first ever Fall Bazaar was a fun event that went very well. We had 10 vendors participate, lots of delicious baked goods and hot food donated, as well as LOTS of used books and sporting goods. Those that came and shopped got some incredible deals, and RBABC made a little over $1300.
As of now, we have enough money to cover the "B" level teams for baseball and softball in the spring. Thank you so much to everyone for your support! However, we have a long ways to go to fundraise enough for the 2015-2016 school year before THIS current year is over. (this has always been our goal in the past) Please continue to support our efforts, and GO REBELS!!
