  • Dear Rieke Families,

    We are in the "get back in our groove" mode with five full days of school for the next three weeks.  We do have some special events scheduled during that time including next Monday having the children’s author Tricia Brown speaking with students and sharing her work.

    Portland Public Schools hopes to start the staffing process for the 2017-18 school year much earlier this year.  Schools are projected to receive our allocations in mid January.  This means I am beginning to identify priorities for Rieke for next year.  To do this I will be getting input from our teachers as well as the Site council/leadership committee.  I will give an update at the January PTA meeting about where I think we may have landed in terms of teaching positions.  I’ll keep you posted as we move forward in this process.

    Our attribute we’re focusing on for December is Accepting.  We will have a short spirit assembly before Winter Break to help kids see what this can look like and recognize students who are embracing it.

    Our Holiday Gift drive is underway.  There are tags posted in the front hallway of gift suggestions.  These will be given to Rieke families who are in need of some extra support during the holidays.  We are collecting unwrapped gifts through Dec. 13.

    It is vitally important that everyone entering or exiting our parking lot during our arrival and dismissal times pays attention and follows the direction of our Safety Patrolers.  The safety patrollers are sharing that they do not feel safe at times with the number of close calls they have had of cars not stopping or paying close enough attention to them.  Thank you for helping keeping our students safe.

    Have a great week!
