Greetings Timberwolf Parents,
On behalf of the Reagan staff, I would like to welcome you to the 2023-24 school year! My name is Pamela Hoffhous, and I am the proud principal of Reagan Elementary School, home of the Timberwolves! This year will mark my 30th year in education and my 28th year in Clovis Unified School District! and I look forward to serving our students, staff and parent community for a fifth year! We are excited to begin our 18th school year as one of Reagan Educational Center’s feeder elementary schools. Reagan Elementary students proudly wear our school colors of navy blue, hunter green and silver. Reagan is one of eight elementary schools that feed into Reyburn Intermediate and Clovis East High School.
As we begin the 2023-24 School Year, I want to reassure you that student and staff safety continue to be our #1 priority, along with providing our students with the highest of quality education. Our Timberwolves deserved the very best educational experience and our teachers and staff are all highly qualified for the job and I couldn't be more proud of the work they do and their desire for continueous improvement.
This year marks the district's 63rd year and Clovis Unified continues to strive to provide the best education for ALL students! Our district motto this year is "We Are Clovis Unified!" Last year, Reagan began using and attention-getter with our students "We Are...T-Wolves!" and so we have decided to take this to a new level and are making this our motto this year as we focus on the traits of a Timberwolf that make us OUTSTANDING students of character! Timberwolves are caring, playful, and above all- devoted to family. We proudly remind each other that we are the WOLFPACK and Wolfpack means FAMILY and we will continue to remind our students of that. Additionally, we will focus on other traits that represent a Timbewolf such as bravery, courage, loyalty, and can also be very protective, nurturing and tender. Most importantly, we will remind our students that while it's important to develop into an independent and strong student, we can also find greater strength when we work together as a a PACK. I truly believe that it is our job to inspire students to be the best they can be in mind, body, and spirit and we can accomplish all our goals when we work together and aspire toward excellence. This is possible when all stakeholders work together with the same goal in mind. Our students, staff are unified in their commitment day in and day out to be thoughtful about their interactions with our Timberwolves - encourage, inspire, and create positive interactions. We hold ourselves to high standards and follow a PACK Pride mentality. PACK stands for “Prepared, Accountable, Caring, and Kind!”
I am proud to announce that Reagan Elementary has received Platinum Recognition by the state of California for our PBIS model AGAIN which means that Reagan has continued to implement effective research-based interventions to support our students both academically and behaviorally. Reagan has also earned recognition by Fresno State University as a Bonner School of Character Education and Citizenship Award! Additionally, Reagan was also received the 2022 California Pivotal Practice Award for continuing to keep our students engaged and connected to school during the most challenging times in education. To say I am a proud principal is an understatement. It takes the entire PACK for programs to be effecitive - this staff is all in! We are also proud to continue promoting the development of positive character strength through the school-wide implementation of Positivity Project. Reagan will continue to provide students with character strength knowledge and development through year 5 . This will provide further education on character development, citizenship, and empathy for others - with the motto of "Other People Mindset". Reagan is also again working on becoming a Common Sense Digital Citizenship School by providing all students lessons on how to be responsible while accessing technology. Additionally, Reagan will begin the implementing steps to becoming an AVID school and providing best practices that support all students in holding them to high expectations and preparing them for college and career readiness! These are just a few areas that we feel contribute toward the development of the whole child, beyond the textbooks.
I hope that you find some way to get involved at Reagan regardless of how much or how little of time you have to offer - we welcome you and your partnership in your child's education. This website has been prepared to provide a convenient reference for basic and essential information concerning the operation of the school. We hope you find it useful and informative. Please contact the school office at any time if you have questions, concerns, or suggestions.
