Welcome to Rieke!
Thanks for a great Kinder Connect! If you need kindergarten information, please call!
We are well into a busy winter and I'm so proud of our students, staff and community.
Science Fair is Monday, Feb. 23 at OMSI and coming in March: Dr. Suess/Read Across America Day is March 2, March 6 is the Raise it for Rieke Benefit, March 12 is the PTA Community Dinner and March 20 is Spirit Day.
Also on March 20, we will clean out the lost and found and donate unclaimed items. Be sure to look through lost and found before March 20. Thank you!
In April, we will be giving the Smarter Balanced Assessments, which replace the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills this year. A good way to prepare is to do a practice test with your child. I will let parents know specific testing dates so that together we can support our kids.
Thanks for all you do to support our students and school.
