    Dear Rieke Families,

    Our Right Brain residency is going well. Ask your student how their music or drumming class has gone so far. Last week was the first session so we’ll have two more sessions when we return from Winter break. Our artist Aaron Nigel Smith is doing a performance this Sunday that is super family friendly. He will be at the Secret Society at 116 NE Russell St, Portland, OR 97212. The show starts at 1:00 PM and the doors open at 12:45 PM. Here are the rest of the event details, as well as ticket information:





    Winter break starts on Monday, Dec. 17 and students return on Wednesday, Jan. 2 – yes, a long break! Please be sure to check the Lost and Found this week as we do have a few winter coats there that need to get reconnected with their owners.


    Starting the week of January 14, 2019, the Nutrition Services department will be utilizing School Messenger to notify families by phone and email about student meal account balances.  Kitchen staff will continue to provide personal phone call reminders and/or paper letters home.  If you have questions about student meal accounts or other information, please visit their webpage www.pps.net/nutrition or call their department 503-916-3399.


    Enjoy the holidays and all the best for a Very Happy New Year! See you in 2019!
