REED CITY \u2014 Students throughout the Reed City Area Public Schools system have a busy calendar this week - and not just at the blackboard or in front of the class. It\u2019s Pride Week time - and loyal Coyotes around the community are gearing up to show their support for students, staff, and school. \u201cPride Week is a way to get our students, district staff, and the entire community involved in our school-wide programs,\u201d reported district superintendent Steven Westhoff in an earlier interview. \u201cThis is very similar to Homecoming week. It\u2019s just a great way to demonstrate our pride in this school district and in the extended Reed City community as well.\u201d \u201cWe have a lot of fun things planned, and we hope everyone throughout the community will join us and get involved in whatever they can,\u201d said Westhoff.
