Message from the Principal
Happy New Year! I hope this message finds all Rheem Teamers energized for all the learning and growing that awaits us in 2017. Each New Year brings with it new hopes and goals, but one thing remains constant: “We’re all in this together!” Let’s keep our famous spirit of collaboration (a.k.a. “Roadrunner Pride”) strong as we enjoy the good times as well as face the inevitable challenges ahead. We can do this!
P.S. And, I can’t think of another group of people I’d rather do it WITH… *BeepBeep*

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.
