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
RESPONSIBILITY is our theme this week
To respond when appropriate; to be accountable for ones actions
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!

THE WONDER TREE
What do you wonder?
The Rieke Elementary School student have a lot of questions as they explore, interact, and learn about the world around them. When they have a wonder, they can submit it to the Wonder Tree and earn a bud with their name on it. These questions are then added to the Wonder Wall for students to pick and conduct research to try to find an answer to the question. When they return their research sheet, they earn a leaf for the tree.
Rieke students, you are now able to complete a Wonder Quest online with your family. Pick a question that interests you from the Wonder Tree website and research and submit the answer.
Let's watch the Wonder Tree bloom and grow!
