Message from Mr. Smith

Greetings from Anna Reynolds Elementary School! I would like to personally welcome you to our school website. My name is Jason Smith, and I have been the proud Principal of this school for seven years. Here at Anna Reynolds, we pride ourselves on the partnership that is created with families and our community.

Anna Reynolds Elementary School first opened in September 1954. Since then, our school has grown to almost 400 students, serving grades kindergarten through fourth grade. Anna Reynolds has been named a National Blue Ribbon School once in 1994, and again in 2016. Our school has been ranked in the top 15 percent of all schools in the state in Reading (or English Language Arts) and Mathematics. Because of this, Anna Reynolds is recognized as a school with Exemplary High Performance.

We have a very active Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) that sponsors a variety of activities and events which benefit our school. Some examples of these are the Ice Cream Social, Fall Festival, Daughter Dance, Son Night, and End of Year Picnic. Families and staff members truly cherish these annual events as they encourage the vital relationship between home and school that Anna Reynolds values. We believe that a strong parent-teacher collaboration is at the center of the success of our students.

Our school consists of small classes, with an average of 19 students per class, which maximizes each individual child’s potential for success. Additionally, we pride ourselves on the ample number of support staff throughout our building. Our mission is to foster the development of self-directed, lifelong learners, who will become socially responsible, respectful citizens, appreciating and valuing diversity. Anna Reynolds strides to provide a quality education for students in a safe, supportive learning environment that encourages development and creativity. Our staff is committed to providing students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to succeed in a dynamic, global setting.

I invite you to explore our website further and gain a more in-depth understanding of our school and our values. By doing so, you will find many reasons as to why I am so proud of this school and our accomplishments. Thank you for your interest in Anna Reynolds Elementary School.

Mr. Jason Smith
