Message from the Principal
Next week is Parent Conference Week. I hope you have your “Rheem Team Family Challenge” posted prominently to help you keep track of the different schedules each day. Please note that Tuesday, Thursday and Friday will be shortened minimum days with an 11:45 dismissal for all 1st – 5th grade students. Wednesday will follow the regular schedule, but remember; Wednesday is always an early dismissal day at 1:50 for 1st – 5th graders. All kindergartners will arrive as “early birds” every day next week.
Make sure you review the “Tips for a Successful Parent Conference” so that you can make the most of this important meeting. It’s our hope that by working together, we can make this the most successful year possible for every student.
While you’re at school for your Parent Conference, be sure to stop by the Book Fair, which will be held in the Library next week. Proceeds from this event will go to support our school library.
Approximately 40 Rheem Parents attended the “Soul Shoppe Parent Evening” on Thursday, November 6. Daniel Bruno provided an overview of how we’re using specific communication tools to help solve conflicts at school and how parents can use these tools at home. For more information on the Soul Shoppe program at Rheem, please click HERE.
In addition, Daniel recommended the book Parenting with Love and Logic as a good resource for parents who would like additional guidance in developing communication skills to support children’s character development. Another recommended resource was www.commonsensemedia.org, which provides parents with important information about the appropriateness of movies, books, games, and other technology to help foster good decision making.

During the upcoming parent conferences, your child’s teacher will likely review the 1st trimester report card with you. As this is a transition year for our district as we begin implementation of the Common Core Standards, we want to let you know that our report card is also in transition. For information about the revisions you may see to the report card during this transitional year, please click HERE.
