Message from the Principal



Next week is our last before Spring Break.   We are all looking forward to a well-earned school-wide Pajama Day and Read in on Friday, March 27!  Students earned this special day by their overwhelming participation and efforts during this year’s “Fan-{TACHE}-tic” Read-a-thon.  We will also celebrate with Spirit Assemblies on that day and will announce how much money we’ve collected in Read-a-thon donations at that time, so make sure you’ve sent yours in to be counted.


Also, please note that Friday, March 27 is a minimum day.  School will start at 8:25 for all students (including K – 2nd grade late birds) on that day.  Kindergarten students will be dismissed at 11:50, while 1st through 5th graders will have a 12:12 dismissal time.


Happy Spring!

Common Core-ner
March 20, 2015

On Monday, March 9, Rheem teachers participated in their fifth Staff Development Day with our Educational Writing Consultants.  It was a day for us to reflect on our efforts with Writer’s Workshop; to celebrate successes and share lessons learned.  This year has been a learning year not only for our students, but also for our teachers.  Our teachers are making a significant shift from “teaching the writing” to “teaching the writer.”  This change enables teachers to provide clear, explicit teaching strategies through mini-lessons, then confer with small groups and/or individuals as they include these strategies in their own unique pieces.   It’s a lot of work (for both students and teachers!), but it’s exciting to see our students write with more unique “voices” and to gain writing stamina.

This shift can impact parents as well.  Parents often ask, “How can I help my student with their writing?”  Well-intended parents will often focus on grammar, spelling, and organization of writing, all important strategies when editing a final piece.    However, during the writing process, parents can be most supportive by engaging in discussions about what the writer is trying to express.  Click HERE for an article that includes tips for parents to become effective writing partners.  As always, thank you for your support!

Mindset Matters

Mindset Matters – Please complete Parent Survey!
March 27, 2015

This school year, all Rheem students and staff participated in Soul Shoppe assemblies, designed to promote better ways to communicate and feel more successful at school.  Now, we are collecting feedback from parents, students, and staff about Soul Shoppe’s impact in order to make plans for future character education programs at Rheem.

Please take a few minutes to complete the Parent Survey.  It will only take a couple of minutes.  If you have more than one child at Rheem, you may complete a separate survey for each child (or just complete one survey if you feel the answers would be similar).  Click HERE to begin.
