Principal's Message, April 22

Hopefully report cards made it home from last week. Our courier system is fairly reliable but sometimes things do go into the black holes of backpacks. If you did not receive a report card for your child please check with the teacher.

We have updated the Rieke calendar with adjusted dates given the new last day of school – Weds, June 12. Remember, the district has decided to close on May 8 due to the statewide school funding rally. Champions will be providing care on this date. Our Writer’s Tea will continue as planned on Thursday, May 9.

Our Read Across Rieke event last Thursday was a great success! Thank you to our special guest readers Jake Gartland, Cynthia Follansbee, Joelle Allen, Jim Meurer, Leah Klass, and Pepye Ladd. We also had several staff readers, as well as a special treat of some students from Robert Gray joining us to read. The students did really well and were very positive about it so we’re hoping it becomes a new Rieke tradition.

Happy Earth day and have a great week, hopefully with some sunshine!

Sarah
