Message from the Principal

Happy New Year!  I hope this message finds all Rheem Teamers energized for all the learning and growing that awaits us in 2017.  Each New Year brings with it new hopes and goals, but one thing remains constant: “We’re all in this together!”  Let’s keep our famous spirit of collaboration (a.k.a. “Roadrunner Pride”) strong as we enjoy the good times as well as face the inevitable challenges ahead.  We can do this! 


P.S.  And, I can’t think of another group of people I’d rather do it WITH… *BeepBeep*

School News & Highlights

At the December 13 school board meeting, the Instructional Calendar for NEXT school year (2017-18) was approved.  Download your copy by clicking HERE and make sure to note the start of school and school holidays.  Although the specifics of Back-to-School Night and Open House haven’t been finalized yet, you’ll have important information for planning.


Rheem Parent Elected School Board President

On December 13, 2016, Moraga School Board member, Jon Nickens, was elected to serve as Board President.  President Nickens was elected to the Board in 2014 and most recently served as the Board’s vice president.  Mr. Nickens is well known to those of us at Rheem.  He is a frequent volunteer, working in his children’s classrooms and even helping out with vision screening and on picture day.  He has also served on the Rheem PTA board as treasurer and served on Rheem’s School Site Council.


Support MEF by supporting MEF Business and Civic Sponsors

These days, most people are choosing to spend their money with businesses that support like-minded causes.  Are you aware which local businesses support the Moraga Education Foundation?  Click HERE to view the list of MEF’s business and civic sponsors. As you make spending decisions in 2017, please consider supporting these businesses and organizations, and be sure to let them know their contribution and support of quality education is very much appreciated!


Communication is Key!

Rheem Elementary is a very special place that takes advantage of a “team” approach—teachers, students, and parents all joining together to promote a dynamic learning environment in which all students can thrive.  

 Make sure you are receiving all important communications from Rheem School.   Here are the Big Three:

  •  Rheemarks: "Frank"ly Speaking – This weekly email (look for it on Sundays) is sent through Rheem's School Messenger System from Principal Frank.  Family email addresses are pulled from our data base (the info provided at registration) to make sure that ALL families receive this newsletter.  This newsletter focuses on current school events and issues.  Click HERE to view the most recent edition as well as to access Rheemarks archives.
  • PTA E-News – Rheem’s weekly PTA Newsletter is sent out on Wednesdays and limited to important information and updates about PTA programs, activities, opportunities, and more!  Once you sign up for PTA, you’ll start receiving these informative newsletters.
  • REMIND text messages -- It’s easy!  It’s quick!  It’s informative!  Last year, we began using a new system called REMIND to send quick “texts” to parents who sign-up for this service.  The one-way text messages come directly from the front office and are limited to brief, timely “Rheeminders.”  This is the best way to not miss an important due date or forget a minimum day!  To receive messages via text, simply text @rheem to 81010 or click HERE to download instructions.

In addition, all classroom teachers have email distribution lists to inform parents of specific classroom events.  Being aware of programs, schedules, due dates, etc. is key to a successful (and less stressed!) school year for you and your child.
