I have 1 child at Reams and and I truly love the way the teachers interact with him as well as the other children.The staff truly cares about the kids and they take that extra mile to help them succeed.
I have two children at Reams and love the relationships they share with their fellow students as well as their teachers. Mrs. Dunn is the most caring, nurturing principal who shows consideration and kindness to EVERY student; always making them feel special, and encouraging their capabilities. My kids have had great relationships with their teachers, making them excited to learn. Gotta love that! The staff is always there to assist anytime you need help, with a positive attitude. The school slogan, 'Work Hard Be Kind' is evident that it is instilled on a daily basis! I love Reams Elementary, and feel they are very deserving of this honor. I hate to see budget cuts in the school systems, as the children ARE our future, and I feel confident Reams would use this prize money to it's most efficient use!
Reams is a caring, compassionate, supportive community of students, parents and teachers who have a genuine respect for each other and for learning. The teachers and staff go above and beyond to make each child feel special. They take time to discover the gifts within each child that makes them unique.
So many reasons why, for us everyone at Reams is family! It always amazed me how a 5th grade teacher knew who my 1st grader was - the teachers know and care about all the students, even if they were not in their class!
My child attends Reams Elementary and has special needs in english/language, and was being taught two separate curriculums. When his teacher told me he wasn't keeping up with his peers I asked how they expected him to if they were teaching him two separate curriculums? I am a working parent, but make no excuses and work with him regularly on his reading/language. He also has a speech therapy teacher at Reams who I think the WORLD of. She is absolutely wonderful and has exceeded my expectations. I am a parent who has also volunteered on a number of occasions, but have been told there were plenty of volunteers and I wasn't needed. The school works better with some children/parents then they do with others. Unfortunately, my son and I are of the others.
I have had children in Reams for the last 5 years and every year they get better. More programs for the children , great quality teachers, teaching to children where they are as individuals. I work for another elementary school near by and would not even think of moving my children.
This school has come VERY far since I went there when I was young & now I have 2 kids. Thier teachers have been wonderful & any issues I have, I know I can speak freely with the principals... & have had to.
