Reavis High News

Letter from the Superintendent


Dear Reavis Rams:

I know I speak for the entire Reavis Family when I say how unnerved and shaken we all were, along with our great nation, with the horrific events that occurred in Parkland, Florida last Wednesday.  Let us never forget how unfortunate it is that we have to think and plan for these types of events.  There is nothing more important to me, the Board of Education, and the entire Reavis community, than the safety and security of our students and staff.

Turnabout Day

On February 6th, Reavis Senior students traded places with School Administrators and City Officials in the annual Turnabout Day. The students learned what it was like to be a leader in their school and community as they assumed the duties of the respective offices for a  day. Reavis would like to thank everyone for their participation, especially the community officials for the generous spirit and willingness to participate in this annual event. 

Congratulations!

On Friday, February 2nd, Reavis FCCLA members competed in the Regional Competition at the College of DuPage. They challenged FCCLA members from other schools in Cookie Decorating, Relish Tray, Cake Decorating, Preschool Storytelling, and Fashion Construction.
Congratulations to all of the FCCLA members! They did fantastic! Many of them will be going to State Competition in Springfield, Illionis in April. Wish them good luck!

This Friday our boys basketball team and Troop Dreams will be partnering to salute our military. We are asking the community to reach out to family and friends who are currently serving or have served this great country and invite them to Friday’s game to be recognized for their service to our nation. All members of the military will receive free admission and will be recognized on the court before the Varsity game. All money collected at the gate will be given to the Saunders Family in memory of Veteran Rich Saunders. #GoRams

Junior Parent Night

The Reavis High School Guidance Department invites you to attend the Class of 2019 Junior Parent Night on Wednesday, January 10th at 6:30 p.m. in the Library.  The night’s events will include reviewing graduation requirements, college and financial aid timelines, standardized testing, and post-secondary options.  

Congratulations!

Reavis High School is pleased to announce the new group of Reavis faculty members who have achieved National Board Certification. This group is unique in that the process now allows a candidate to submit work over multiple years, and they are the first to certify under the revised system. 

Lead Testing Statement

As of January 1, 2017, the State of Illinois requires that all public and private schools with students enrolled in grades preschool through fifth grade sample all sources of drinking water for lead and post the results by December 2017. All schools constructed before 1987 are required to be tested this year, buildings between 1986 and 2000 must be tested in 2018.  Reavis High School District #220 believes all of its students deserve a healthy learning environment, and we have completed the mandated testing. The testing was completed on November 2, 2017.

Inspire and World Languages clubs

The Inspire and World Languages clubs volunteered at a homeless shelter in Oak Lawn where they delivered gift bags and donations (generously donated by the Reavis community), set up beds, organized clothing donations, and sang holiday songs for the guests.

We are incredibly proud of our students who went there and to the entire community for being so generous this holiday season!

Thank You, Ambassadors!

The Ambassadors would like to thank all of our entire Reavis community for coming together and donating for over 47 families (125 children) – for our Holiday Toy Drive benefitting the Burbank Food Pantry (Our Saviors Lutheran Church).  We are overwhelmed with Holiday Spirit!
