Community Care Day

 PROJECT COMMUNITY CARES – SATURDAY, AUGUST 22ND AT RIEKE SCHOOL

 

Project Community Care Day is Saturday, August 22nd from 9:00AM – 12:00 PM. This is a volunteer all-school clean-up. Rieke Elementary can use your help to make our grounds look great for our students and the community. Please bring your garden gloves, weed eaters, power washers, edgers, garden tools, loppers, and friends/neighbors. Please wear your grubby clothes as we have work to do! Our campus is big, and we can really use your help-- even for one hour. Middle school and high school siblings can receive community service hours for this event.

 

Email zprichard@pps.net or rtorres@pps.net with any questions. Hope to see you there!!

Kindergarten Readiness

 

What is kindergarten readiness?

 You might think that it's most important for children to start kindergarten knowing their ABCS, numbers, shapes and colors. But there are equally, if not more, important skills that prepare your child for success in school.

Raising an eager learner is the goal, and it can be achieved  through play and day-to-day activities. Here are the top readiness skills that kindergarten teachers look for:

  • Excitement toward learning
  • Talking about thoughts and feelings
  • Listening to others
  • Desire to be independent
  • Playing well with others and taking turns
  • Following simple instructions
  • Ability to hold and use a pencil or crayon
  • Recognizing numbers and letters
