Eva Joy Riedl's Baby Shower!
June 1 - 5, 2015

   Thanks so much to everyone who helped with Eva's Baby Shower last Friday! Jen, Nolan, Delaney, and I had a great time. We really appreciate all of the gifts for Eva and our family. This weekend we already went to Ikea to buy a new dresser, and we are so excited about it! The love we have felt pouring out from God through the families at our school is wonderful! 
   Other big news... I am about 99% done editing the 5th Grade Shake Music Video! One of the days this week, we will have a music video premiere for all of the 5th graders to view it. Later that day it will be available on my YouTube channel to friends, family, and anyone else who wants to see it. Be sure to like it and share it! 
   Also, please make sure to scroll down to the bottom of my newsletter to see how you can help me improve as a teacher. I would really appreciate your feedback by completing my survey. Thank you. Only 7 days of school left! Please remember that this Friday is the last day to turn in any missing/late work or Correction Forms... Make it a great week, everyone!

Survey to help Mr. Riedl become a better teacher

I am continually learning and growing as a teacher, and I appreciate any specific feedback you can give me at the end of the year. I feel like this was a great year, although I have many thoughts in my head about ways I can improve in the future. Over the summer, I plan to work on improving my planning/teaching of curriculum, getting more organized, adding more parent/student resources to my website, among other things. Please CLICK HERE to give me feedback by taking a quick survey. Thank you so much for helping me be a better teacher in the years to come!
