Our annual fundraiser, the Run for Rieke, is coming up really soon! Students and teachers will walk, jog, and run the Wilson track on Friday, September 28th.
K-2nd graders run first, starting around 1:15-1:30. The 3rd-5th graders follow, starting around 1:45-2:00. They are cheered on while they run, walk, or jog for a total of 30 minutes. Popsicles will be enjoyed after the run. Please remember to pack water bottles and comfortable athletic shoes for your child on this day.
Students brought home their purple pledge forms this past Friday. Please ask friends, relatives, and community members to sponsor your student. Sponsors have the option of pledging per lap (1/4 mile) or a lump sum. Students usually run between 5 and 13 laps.
The money raised goes to the Rieke Elementary Foundation. The foundation raises funds that are used to hire additional support for the teachers. This helps ensure that all children will have more individualized attention and educational opportunities to help them learn and succeed.
In the event of severe rain or weather, the rain date is Monday, October 1st.
Pledge forms are due the week of September 24th, prior to the run. We are seeing volunteers to make this a successful event. Click here to sign up.
