Communities In Schools Program
Hello, my name is Lori Ann Reeder. I am the HRMS Site Coordinator for Communities In Schools of Peninsula (CISP). CISP is an independent nonprofit organization that partners with Peninsula School District to help kids achieve academic and social/emotional success. The mission of CISP is to “surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life”. I will be coordinating efforts with the school staff to help ensure student success both individually and in group settings. I have an office at HRMS, and my purpose is to advocate for the students and help them navigate some of middle school’s tough times so they are prepared for high school.
Here are some of the ways CISP can help:
- Tutoring (lunch time or after school)
- Mentoring (meeting with an inspiring, caring adult)
- Basic Needs & Services (clothing, counseling, dental, food, supplies, etc.)
- Community Service Opportunities
- Club Activities
- Parent/Student Engagement
I look forward to working with you and your kids!
CHOICE Transfers Requests are approved for one school year only.
Peninsula School District will be accepting student transfer applications from both in District and out of District families through April 30th.
Due to elementary school redistricting and lower class size initiatives we will not be accepting any new out of District transfer requests at the elementary level. The District expects the transfer process for in District students at the elementary level to be more complex and challenging than in previous years.
Additionally, due to the rapid growth in Gig Harbor North, Harbor Ridge Middle School will not be accepting any new 2016-2017 in District or out of District transfer requests.
