TECHNOLOGY MISSION STATEMENT
TECHNOLOGY MISSION STATEMENT
Henry E. S. Reeves Elementary School’s technology magnet is
comprised of an aggressive plan that addresses the challenges
and diverse needs of its students. Technology is an
effective tool and an essential component that supports
quality education within our “Learning Communities.”
Students will have the opportunity and knowledge to select
appropriate tools (i.e. word processing, spreadsheets, technology
research skills, graphics and web design), which are aligned with
the curriculum and core subjects, Reading/Language Arts,
Mathematics, Social Studies and Science.

Principal’s Message
Henry E. S. Reeves Elementary School has a great tradition of
exemplary teachers, friendly and caring staff, involved parents,
and most importantly, WONDERFUL students. We are truly, “A
Community of High Achievers!” As we continue to celebrate excellence while building a legacy, our goals continue to be loud
and clear—”Raising Student Achievement.” We must continue
to set high expectations for our students and provide a safe learning environment. I encourage all parents or guardians to remain
active in their child’s education. I welcome your participation in
the school improvement process by attending PTA and EESAC
committee meetings. By working together, we will make a difference in the lives of all students. Again, I welcome you to Henry
E. S. Reeves Elementary School, “Academy of Applied Technology - Preparing for Success.”
