A note from Mrs. Todd

Dear Riebli families,

Happy New Year! As I set here and reflect on the first 7 days of 2021, there are lots of words running through my mind. The one that stands out the most is perseverance! Our students, families and staff continue to show how they can persevere through whatever is put in front of them. I have been thinking a lot of what my “one word” for 2021 may be. I know that some of the teachers are doing this activity with the students. My 2020 word was “Pivot.” My 2021 word is “Persevere.” I feel like it implies hope, forward moment through struggle and that there is an end to the struggle. I know that we are all tried, but find the hope and joy in the moment.



CREW is proud to announce The CREW Performing Arts Program

Riebli Parents-

We hope that you are all holding up well during these unprecedented and crazy times in our kids’ education. We are missing our CREW friends and have come up with a fun and enriching after school activity to enable us to support and socialize together.

CREW is proud to announce The CREW Performing Arts Program. Coming to Riebli in January. 2021. THIS PROGRAM IS FOR GRADES 3-6.

In the past few months many classic movies have done table reads over Zoom to support various non profits. We are excited to produce our own original play which will be performed over Zoom. We are fortunate to have the talents of Fidaa Shaheen an active Petaluma educator that has written and directed many plays for elementary students. She will guide us through the process which will include rehearsals 2 to 3 days per week culminating in a live recorded show. Parents and community members will be given a link to watch and share. All interested students will be given a role in the production. Dates and times for the rehearsals and showings will be announced in early December. The rehearsals will run about 6 weeks prior to the show.

If your student is interested in participating, please fill out and return the attached sign up form to lromstad@teamcrew.org

As always, thanks so much for your continued support of CREW.

Monthly Parent Meetings

To be honest, I don’t feel my parent meetings in the evening are the most effective way to answer of all of your questions. I have been brainstorming how to make this more effective for you and your time.

So, I have created a google form for you to write your questions in and then I will answer via email and in a video shared by all.

Here is the google form

Feel free to also email me any questions you may have.
