Principal's Message, April 9

Dear Rieke Families,

Welcome to the first week of the final quarter of this school year! This is the time of year when things really start speeding up with lots of events taking place, including many field trips. We will try and keep the calendar on the Rieke website updated with all events and any changes taking place.

For this week we have moved the Lost and Found into the front hall. Please stop by and take a look if you think you’re missing something. These will be donated to the PPS Clothes Closet at the end of the week.

If you happen to go by the Hillsdale library check out Rieke students’ art behind the check out desk. We will also have one student’s piece highlighted at the HeArt of Portland event at the Portland Art Museum where for a couple of weeks starting on April 16 they will have student work from a variety of PPS schools on display. It is a way of promoting the benefits the district and our students receive from the Portland Art Tax.Here is an important update regarding the 2018-2019 Yearbook:
