  • Dear Rieke Families,

    Monday got away from me somehow!  Yesterday was bosses day and I was reminded by our wonderful staff how fortunate I am to be able to work with such a great group of professionals.  That combined with delightful students and such a supportive community means I’m truly lucky indeed!


    Our first Diversity Celebration was a fun success.  Thank you to the Aztec Dance troupe who came to us through 4th grader Mateo Serna and his dad Rodolfo, the Sellwood Middle School Marimba band, to art teacher Jill Mitchell for helping families make Wish Flags, and to Salvador Molly’s for coming to sell their delicious tamales.  Thank you as well to our students who displayed works describing their cultures and traditions.  I hope this is the first of more such events to come!


    We currently have 7 classrooms participating in our outdoor classroom project.  This is being done through the Green Schoolhouse with grant funding and support from our PTA.  The students are spending about an hour every other week working in the garden doing activities that relate directly to the content they are learning in math, science, writing and/or literacy.  There are several additional teachers who plan to participate later this year.  The response from both students and teachers so far is very positive.


    Tomorrow is our late opening and staff will use this time to focus on how to make our school and classrooms as inclusive as possible.  This includes ensuring we have systems in place to work with students when issues around race or acts of discrimination occur.  It’s valuable time to be able to bring the entire staff together so please know we make the most of this it, realizing that it can pose a challenge for families in finding childcare coverage.


    Have a great rest of the week,




    Rieke School
