Message from the Principal

The students, teachers and I enjoyed celebrating the success of our Fan-{TACHE}-tic Read-a-thon at Wednesday Spirit Assemblies.  In addition to discovering that we DID earn a Pajama Day/Read-in Day on March 27 (see article below for some amazing stats!), we also held a raffle for those students who completed “I’m a Fan-{TACHE}-tic reader posters.  These lucky winners were:


 $5 Powell’s certificates:
Kindergarten: Issac N.,
1st grade: Jasper S.
2nd: Gregory H.
3rd: Tisa S.
4th: Isabelle K.
5th: Soumili M.

$10 Storyteller certificates:
K – 2nd: Adison S. (1st grade)
3rd – 5th: Aydrey Z. (3rd grade)


The kids did a GREAT job reading; let’s support them by contributing to Rheem PTA!  Remember, every dollar you donate in honor of your child’s efforts goes back to the students at Rheem.


Also, we are looking forward to Soul Shoppe returning to Rheem on Monday, March 2.  The “Be an Ally” assemblies will focus on how to stand-up and others in order to make our friendships and school as safe and happy as possible. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Common Core-ner

Common Core-ner

As our curriculum shifts to align with the Common Core State Standards, our assessment program has shifted as well.  The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) has replaced the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR). Last year, our 3rd – 5th graders participated in a “field test” which allowed them to experience the computer-based testing and new types of questions.  This year, all students in 3rd – 5th grade will participate in the full version of CAASPP, and we will receive individual score reports on student progress.

For more information on these computer adaptive tests, including a link to practice tests which are available on-line, please click HERE.

Mindset Matters

Mindset Matters
February 27, 2015

Can all students achieve in math at high levels?  Or, are some people born with a “math brain” while others are not?  The answer may surprise you.  And, yes, the answer has everything to do with a “growth mindset.”  A new on-line course, “How to Learn Math,” taught by professor of mathematics Jo Boaler and her students at Stanford University, explains the connection between math success and a growth mindset.  Click HERE for a 4-minute preview of this math course and HERE to sign-up!  It’s FREE!  Parents, consider taking the course together with your child.  There’s lots to learn, discuss, and think about!
