March from Robert Gray to Rieke to Wilson

Rieke families, we need you!
March from Robert Gray to Rieke to Wilson Tuesday evening starting at 5 p.m.

Tuesday night, SW Portland families will convene at Wilson High School at 6 p.m. to share their stories with PPS and DBRAC, the volunteer committee that has been working to solve overcrowding issues in SW Portland schools. This is our chance to tell them why keeping Rieke a neighborhood school matters, and why we care about keeping the Hillsdale neighborhood together! 

The more families that show up, the greater our impact. Please come to Wilson. If you can, please walk from Robert Gray and/or Rieke. 

It's imperative to our success that Rieke shows up in numbers, representing families of all kinds. You can make a sign to march with, you and/or your child can speak at the meeting, you can fill out comment cards, or you can simply be there and show them the Rieke community mobilizes!

Tuesday, Jan. 19
Gather at Robert Gray at 5 p.m. to walk to Rieke, then Wilson
Meeting: 6 p.m to 7:30 p.m.
Wilson High School Cafeteria
Childcare and interpretation in Spanish and Somali is provided.

Wear a white T-shirt or, if you have one, a "We WALK for Rieke" T-shirt. Blythe McCrea still has some "We WALK for Rieke" T-shirts, so come early to claim yours at the Robert Gray meeting point.

Everyone at Rieke can make a difference on this issue, and every Rieke family can be assured that involvement in this process will matter. Show Rieke solidarity!
