Field Trip: Tigard Bowl & Pizza Caboose

Our end-of-the-year field trip will take place on Monday, June 13th from 9:50-1:00pm. Students need to wear/bring socks to use with the bowling shoes. Lunch will be provided at Pizza Caboose, and while students are welcome to purchase snacks while bowling, I hope they are considerate of others who didn't bring money for snacks. According to the Volunteer Schedule, we have plenty of parents to help carpool students. Thank you! I'll be sending volunteer info to you soon. Let me know if you have additional questions.

Annual End-of-the-Year Survey to Help Mr. Riedl Improve

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 have a few things in mind that I'm planning to work on, and I would any other suggestions that you think might be helpful. 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!
