Applauding our students and teachers
Dear Rieke Community,
I just want to recognize our students and teachers for such high academic achievement. The State Report Card for Rieke, released in October, shows our the percentage of Rieke students who are at benchmark in reading and math exceeds the school district average by 10 to 20 percentage points at all grade levels.
In Science, greater than 95 percent of our fifth graders are at benchmark in Science, 22 percentage points higher than the district average!
I credit the hard work of our teachers and students and also the great Science enrichment that Dr. Jamie Repasky brings to our school. Dr. Jamie is supported by PTA, so thank you parents! Student achievement is a team effort and I will work hard to support our teachers and continued success for our students.
View our full report card.
Thank you for being such a strong school community.
We are dedicated to keeping our school safe and secure. The front doors are the only doors to remain unlocked during the school day. Teachers, staff and emergency services will have ID badges to open doors for entry. Students will enter at the front entrance each morning, or go directly to the portables if that is where their classroom is located.

Tools for Citizenship and Life
Rieke staff and students focus on the Tools for Citizenship and these Lifeskills through out the year. Each week we concentrate on a different theme. There are five Lifelong Guidelines and 18 Lifeskills.
Lifelong Guidelines: Personal Best, Trustworthiness, Truthfulness, Active Listening and No Put Downs
The Rieke PTA Imagine Fund has a new way for families and community members to donate online. The Imagine Fund is used to pay for staffing and enrichments at our school. Thank you for your consideration!
