Message from the Principal
May. It’s here. Wow.
CAASPP testing begins on Monday, May 2 for 3rd – 5th graders and continues through Friday, May 13. Individual schedules vary by class, but our students will take tests in the areas of English/Language Arts and Math during this two week period. Remember, the best at-home preparations for these tests are a good night’s sleep, a healthy breakfast, and a good attitude; however other test-taking tips (with a focus on managing stress) can be found HERE.
Rheem’s annual Spring Picnic and Art Show is this coming Friday, May 6. The Multi-Use Room will be overflowing with the artwork of Rheem students, and outside you can enjoy special events and games, great food, announcement of the raffle winners, and, of course, the eagerly anticipated Jump Rope Contest. Please make sure you’ve turned in your Spring Picnic wristband order as well as purchased Raffle Tickets to win fabulous prizes. For more information and downloadable copies of these forms, click HERE. And, don’t forget to bring CASH to take advantage of the food trucks and to enjoy other goodies. I’ll look forward to seeing everyone there!
Last, don’t forget that Wednesday, May 4th is Teacher Appreciation Day – the perfect day to let our teachers know how wonderful they are!
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:
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.
