Message from the Principal

Back to school right around the corner

Hello Roadrunners! It's that time of year again when we gear up for the first day of school. I hope everyone had an opportunity to relax a bit and spend time with family and friends. Below is a list of times and dates to get us on time and on task to start the school year off.

 

 

K - 3rd Graders “All Early” for 17-18 School Start

For the first three weeks of school K-3 will follow an all early schedule. This three-week early release period provides teachers time to individually assess their student's reading and math levels to provide differentiated learning experiences for all students as well as to identify students who may be eligible for additional support. K – 3rd grade teachers will contact parents to schedule dates and times for individual student assessment appointments.  We thank you in advance for your understanding and flexibility regarding this “early bird” schedule. Starting September 11th the early late schedule for K-3rd will begin.

 

The schedule for August 21st through September 8th is:

  • K-3rd*
    • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday = 8:25-1:55
    • Wednesday = 8:25-1:50
  • 4th/5th
    • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday = 8:25-3:05
    • Wednesday = 8:25-1:50

*3rd grade will follow the 4th/5th schedule starting September 11th.

2017-2018 Instructional Calendar

Click HERE to douwload and print the 2017-2018 MSD calendar.  It’s the first step to make sure that your home and school calendars are “synced” to ensure good attendance for the next school year.  This calendar also notes events such as Parent Conference Weeks, Back-to-School Night, Open House, Minimum Days, and School Holidays!  Thank you for planning ahead.

 

Full-Day Kindergarten 

On April 13, 2017, the Moraga School District Governing Board approved a full-day kindergarten program, commencing the 2017-2018 school year.  The District is pleased to offer this additional time for increased student learning and social development, as well as more time for singing, reading, outdoor activities, and exploration.  A longer school day will also provide more opportunities for students to develop pro-social behavioral skills, including self-regulation, attentiveness, and self-confidence.

2017-2018 kindergartners will follow the first grade early/late bird, parent conference and minimum day schedule.  School begins at 8:25 AM for early birds and ends at 1:55 PM.  School begins at 9:25 AM for late birds and ends at 3:05 PM.  

 

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: – This weekly email (look for it on Sundays) is sent through Rheem's School Messenger System from Principal Sullivan.  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.
