etter from PTO... 

Dear Parents / Guardians,
The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)  would like to extend our thanks and appreciation for all of your support in helping make Reach Academy , “Rock All…Ways”.  With the guidance and support of Ms. Allen, the Board, and our Legal Team, we would like to petition Mr. Mark Murphy, Secretary of Education, and the Department of Education.  In this petition, we are demanding that they keep “Reach Academy for Girls” open!!

Reach is enlisting your support again.  We only have a few days to get this done!  We have created several ways for you, your immediate family, other family members, friends, and co-workers to sign this petition.  We will have copies in the school office for you to sign. We are also creating the petition on line, and finally we will be sending a copy home with your daughter.

Your daughter can earn an incentive for obtaining as many signatures as possible.  Each signature will count as one Dojo point.  The class that receives the most signatures will receive a pizza party as well as a free dress down day. 

Your letter of support is still desired and needed.  Each letter written by both your daughter and you  is also worth Dojo Points.  Please send all letters of support to Mrs. Valeria Muhammad, Parent/PTO Member, at valeriamuhammad@comcast.net.

Finally, we need as many parents and students to come out on Wednesday, December 10, 2014, at 6:00 pm.  This will take place at the second floor auditorium, Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French Street Wilmington, Delaware.  Wear your pink, bring your voices, share your concerns, and lets fight together. “UNITED WE STAND”

Educationally yours,
Reach Academy for Girls
