Message from the Principal
Not even the rain could dampen the Rheem Team Spirit on Friday, when our kindergartners donned bright orange and black butterfly wings and marched around the Multi-Use Room to the delight of family, friends, and their 5th grade buddies at Rheem’s 41st Annual Butterfly Parade. Just pure cuteness and joy!
And this Friday, October 21, everyone can bask in our special school spirit at our Annual Fall Family Picnic and Cake Walk, from 4:30 – 7:00 p.m. Yet another opportunity to enjoy good, old-fashioned fun with carnival games, giant inflatables, raffle-prizes, good food, the hula-hoop contest, and the biggest collection of colorful and crazy cakes in Moraga!

It’s Digital Citizenship Week
It’s Digital Citizenship Week! In our MSD community, we will be discussing how we can be kind online over the next few weeks. This week we will focus on what it means to be a good digital citizen. We are surveying our MSD community to find out our educational needs for students and parents. Please take a moment to complete our parent survey.
All classroom teachers have access to video and discussion activities on this important topic. The videos are linked below in case you'd like to view too and be able to discuss at home. Each week we will send you a tip sheet or other resource to help facilitate a conversation at home and extend your child’s learning. On Dec. 6, we will host a parent education night at JMIS for all K-8 parents, so mark your calendars.
Focus for Week 1, Oct. 17-21:
We hope all Rheem families will take advantage of Digital Citizenship Week to discuss this important topic.
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.
