Welcome to the Reed Intermediate School PTA!


The PTA is here to support programs for our students, while keeping you informed
during your child's 5th and 6th grade years at Reed.  
It is our hope that you will join us in making a positive impact on the quality of education each RIS student receives.  
The PTA works as a bridge between parents and students, and the faculty, staff and administrators.  
We are proud of this partnership, and strive to maintain open communication.  
As the advocates for every RIS student, and with your support, we can also
be a powerful voice in our local, state and federal governments for our children's education.  We provide enrichment 
events and assemblies, in addition to fundraising for items to enhance all children's learning skills.

PTA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

  • Commitment
  • Diversity

While membership does not obligate you to volunteer, we welcome your involvement with the PTA in all our programs, committees, and meetings.  Please review all open positions and contact us if you can help in any way.

All information can be found at RIS Memberhub  Create a login and you can view our calendar, sign-up to volunteer, purchase spirit wear and much more.
