    Dear Rieke Rocket community,

    Thank you to everyone, especially the staff and students, for helping make our return to in person school in 2021-22 such a success! We still have a lot of work to do to return to normal, to continue addressing learning gaps and needs, and integrate the new curriculum for the 2022-23 school year. But together I know we can do this.

    The final week of the Rieke Video News includes some new footage of our outgoing 5th graders AND a bonus full blooper episode. Check them out on our YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/c/RiekeStudentNews



    The office is open this week from 9-3 each day until Friday. If you still have student items, medications, or other materials to pick up please come on down from now until Friday the 17th between 9-3. As of next week, Rieke will be closed for construction as our new roof installation project truly begins. The building and covered area will be fenced off from June 17 until at least August 12th. The office team does plan on returning on August 15th to Rieke. During summer if you have questions and concerns the best way to reach us is to email Jon Jeans, jjeans@pps.net.


    Teachers are working to complete report cards this week. We will be mailing them home by the end of the week. Our class lists for next year are not yet finalized, but will be in August. We will send notification of classroom placements once we return in August.

    Mark your calendar. PPS community care day is going to be Saturday, August 27th. Join us to beautify the campus before students return to school on August 30th.
