Raise a (Returnable) Beverage for Rieke!  

The Rieke Playground Committee is working hard on plans for exciting playscape improvements. You can help by participating in our Thanksgiving returnable drive. Simply pick up a blue plastic bag, fill it with returnable cans and bottles from those delicious holiday beverages, and return the full bag to Rieke after Thanksgiving. Pick up a bag in the front office or from the Playground Committee's table outside of school on November 16th from 8:45 - 9:30 a.m. Email playground@riekepta.org with any questions.
