    Dear Rieke Rocket community,

    Thank you very much to everyone for all the great donations last week! The staff now has a new working microwave, the prize box is restocked at no cost to the school, and we now have a changing pad and table in the bathroom in the café/gym. If you have such a need with very little ones visiting with you, we hope the new changing area will be helpful.

    Please join us March 14th for the Rieke auction, The Rieke Galaxy Gala. The classroom art projects are being brought in and they look amazing! We hope to have some on display to preview in the main hallway soon. There are only a very limited number of tickets left for the event at the Mittleman Jewish Community Center from 6-10 PM. This is a wonderful event and time to connect with our friends and neighbors while supporting staffing efforts at Rieke. The money raised by Foundation allows us to fill in staffing holes and provide better student supports throughout their day.

    On March 11th we will have 2 assembly performances of our Peruvian dance artist in residence program. At 9:30 we will get to see the k-2 students perform, then at 10:30 grades 3 and 4 will perform. All families are welcome to watch in the gym/café.

    Parents, our great volunteers are getting the yearbook together and they need your candid on campus or field trip pictures. If you have a great picture from Science Fair, OBOB, recess or anything school related please send to riekeyearbook@gmail.com. Thank Bobbi Jo Rust and Jordann Kearns for organizing the yearbook this year.

    Watch the Rieke Way video news show on our website each week. Share the link on the front page at https://www.pps.net/rieke. with friends and family.

    As the information regarding the PPS plan and response to concerns about the coronavirus continues to evolve daily, please follow the PPS website and email announcements as needed. Our staff is doing all we can to provide opportunities for kids and adults to wash hands with warm soapy water, use hand sanitizer, and keep surfaces as clean as possible. The latest district flyer is attached.



    Thank you for the continued support and appreciation for the great work Team Rieke is doing. It is really a joy to be here every day, cheers!
