Tuesday, June 21, Last Day of School


Dear Crocodile Families,

For some of you, this will be your last full week at Nancy Ryles– as a parent, as a volunteer, and as a friend. I want to thank all of our 5th grade families for your ongoing support over the years. We are so proud of our 5th grade students and their next big step into middle school.

For families returning in the fall, you will be receiving your teacher announcements and return-to-school information in late August. All families will receive an email with teacher assignments. We will be holding a “Drop Off Your Supplies/Meet Your Teacher” event on the morning of Friday, September 2 at 9:30 a.m. We will send out more details as the time nears

As you are enjoying the sun this summer, please help prevent the “summer slide” by encouraging your children to READ. Research shows that reading just six books during the summer may help a student from regressing (this is for older children reading chapter books; younger readers will read far more). Make sure those six books are ones that your child can independently read. The Beaverton Library can help determine “just right” books and recommend engaging titles. In fact, we had Beaverton library visitors here at our assembly last week talking about the Beaverton Library Summer Reading Program. Stop by your local library to sign up!

We wish you all a fun, restful, and safe summer, and look forward to seeing you back in the fall for another fantastic school year!

With appreciation,

Monica Arbow

NRCO End of the Year Message from our Outgoing President

I would like to give a big thank you to the Nancy Ryles Community who worked together to give our students the best year possible! I am routinely reminded that we have a community of parents, guardians, grandparents, and other important adults in our students’ lives who are generous with their time, money, resources, and talents. It’s phenomenal to be part of such a caring community.

Thank you to our staff, who have been flexible as the guidelines have changed. You continue to nurture our students in the most amazing ways, academically and socially/emotionally. It’s evident every day that you’re bringing your best to our kids. You work well as a team, and it shows.

I certainly never thought when my older daughter started at Nancy Ryles nine years ago that I would one day be the NRCO President. I didn’t even know what NRCO stood for! But over the years, the relationships and friendships built at Nancy Ryles have been important not just for our kids, but for my family. I didn’t realize until we were separated by the pandemic how much I missed conversations at the bus stop and in the production room.

As you think about next year, I encourage you to continue to make the connections here at the school. If you can make space to volunteer, even once a month or on a field trip, I encourage you to do it. Continue to reach out to each other at school pick up and drop off, at the bus stops, and around the neighborhood. This is a special place because of the caring people who make up this community.

There is a place for you here!

Congratulations to our 2022-23 NRCO leadership team that was voted in at our last meeting:

Ahna Proctor - President

Amanda Cary - Vice President Communications

Jessica Steimer - Vice President Programs and Volunteers

Angela Delk - Secretary

Sandy Carpenter - Lead Treasurer

Sara Bailey - Treasurer

Danielle Bade - Member at Large

Megan Snyder - Member at Large

Fundraising Coordinator - Open

Many of these names look familiar - Ahna, Amanda, Sandy, Sara, Danielle, and Megan were all part of the team this year, as well as Maria Calderon. Thank you to a great leadership team. You’ve gone over and above!

Enjoy your summer!

With gratitude,

Jill Rector, NRCO President

Staff Spotlight - 5th Grade

I have chatted with many parents of 5th grade students in the past few weeks and they all have the same feelings... 5th grade is such a wonderful time for their students because of the teachers! Between BizTown, the spirit they have and the love for learning they share... Their dedication is apparent in the efforts they put towards preparing their students for the world outside of Nancy Ryles Elementary School. Thank you 5th grade teachers!

Summer Meal Program - June 27 - August 11, 2022

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), also known as the Summer Meal Program, was established to ensure that children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. When school is out, SFSP provides free meals to kids and teens in areas of need throughout the community. This summer, USDA plans to serve more than 200 million free meals to children 18 years and under at approved SFSP sites. BSD approved sites are at eligible schools and sites. Please use the link below to receive more information on locations.
