Please check your child's backpack for a Library Reminder Ticket. Since our library sessions are over for the school year, all library books are to be returned. If your child has a Reminder Ticket, please look for the book, so your child can bring it back to me. If the book is lost, there will be a dollar amount at the bottom of the Reminder Ticket, to let you know how much money to send to me to cover the replacement cost. Thank you so much for your assistance.

Thank You!!!

Thank You!!!

We had an amazing Spring Book Fair, and it wouldn't be possible without our amazing Riebli Community. Through rain and wind, you continued to purchase books and support our School Library. This is how I'll be able to get new and wonderful books. I am completely thankful.

Also, this wouldn't happen without our wonderful parent volunteers. A giant THANK YOU to Amy R., Amy L., Athina R., Kelly S., Marika N., and Cami K.! These gals give generously of their time and energy, making our MPR look like a fantastic book store. It was also wonderful to have Clifford show up at Open House to congratulation the children on all the reading they've been doing, and will continue to do. Thank you, Clifford!!!

What is CREW?

CREW is a non-profit that helps young people achieve their best in school and in life by providing mentoring at school. CREW stands for Courage, Resilience, Empowerment, and Wellbeing and is the first school-based mentoring program in Santa Rosa. Carefully selected adult mentors supported mentees for a two-year commitment. CREW trains these adult mentors spend at least an hour a week with their mentees in CREW center, located on our school campus (room 18). All mentors are screened, fingerprinted, trained and monitored during the mentoring time. CREW's goal is providing another caring adult in these students' lives.

Our CREW program manager is Lyn Romstad. She has created, organized, set up, and started recruiting mentors for CREW. She has been working with ECC to be a part of their 501c3 status and their board just approved the partnership this week.
