Introducing our new Principal
Excited to be a Rieke Rocket
Dear Rieke Community,
As your new principal, I want you to know how much I am looking forward to supporting such a strong staff and such active and engaged families.
Thanks to the many families and staff members who came by during my office hours July 22. Everyone was so kind and I left feeling truly excited about our year ahead.
At my former school, Beach K-8, I worked hard on partnerships that served our school and am looking forward to maintaining the strong partnerships at Rieke from the Lewis & Clark student teachers’ program to the Wilson High School teachers’ assistants to the work of PTA-supported Science Enrichment Coordinator Jamie Repasky and the Food Pantry/Back-Pack Program.
My goals are to be visible and accessible to students, staff and parents; do a lot of listening and tuning in to how I can keep a strong school running well, and communicate regularly and clearly with you.
Please join me Tuesday, Aug. 19, from 4 pm to 6 pm, for a Popsicle party at the school.
Also, on Saturday, Aug. 23 from 9 am to noon, please bring your shovels and rakes to help spruce up our grounds on Community Care Day.
Have a great rest of the summer and I look forward to meeting you and hearing your thoughts on how I can best support a great school.
