Welcome to Rieke!
We are breezing into spring and our students, staff and community are as busy as ever.
We're launching our big food drive - March 16-20 - to fill our food pantry and give any leftover to Neighborhood House. Remember to bring in family friendly non-perishable food and be part of keeping our community strong and healthy. We'll celebrate on March 20 with Spirit Day - also celebrating that the following week is Spring Break!
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 and have a great Spring Break!
