Happy New Year New Riegel Families and Friends,
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas Season and that you were able to spend time with family and friends over the Holidays. I hope 2022 is your best year yet!
January is “School Board Recognition Month”. School board members are ordinary people who have an extraordinary dedication to our public schools. It is time we thanked them for their untiring efforts. In January, join with others from throughout our district and state to salute the men and women who provide grassroots governance of public schools. Make a special effort to tell each school board member his or her hard work has been noticed and is very much appreciated. Please share your appreciation of our local school board’s efforts as you see them. Your Board members are: Rodney Biggert, Angel Bodart, Jeff Hohman, Beth Kummerer and Jaclyn Schalk. These board members work diligently to establish a vision for the education program, design a structure to achieve that vision, assure schools are accountable to the community and strongly advocate continuous improvement in student learning.
New Riegel Local School will continue to work collaboratively with staff, faculty and administration to provide in-person learning opportunities to meet the needs of all of our students. We will continue to make decisions what are best for the students of New Riegel and remain steadfast in our commitment to your child. I appreciate all of your cooperation and understanding thus far this year to ensure in-person learning and the ability to enjoy the activities for our students. As guidance and rules change, please make sure you are taking a look at the school website and the COVID19 folder along with monthly updates from our school board meetings. You can also see the board of education minutes on the treasurer’s page located under the department tab on the school website.
As the second semester begins I want to encourage parents to contact your child’s teacher regarding their progress. If you have questions or concerns about any of your student’s grades or have a concern please feel free to call, email, write a note or schedule a conference with your child’s teacher. Our teachers should be your first point of contact when you have questions regarding your child’s education and keep this in mind as our staff is willing to meet with you.
We look forward to having a successful spring semester and to the many blessings we have here at New Riegel Local Schools.
