Message from the Principal
This next week is our last before Spring Break and, as such, it has been declared “Spirit Week” by our 5th grade Student Council. Each day we will have “dress-up” opportunities to show our school spirit, leading up to our well-earned school-wide Pajama Day and Read-In on Friday, March 31st. We will also celebrate with Spirit Assemblies on Friday 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 31, 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.
This Week at Rheem is SPIRIT WEEK!
Rheem Roadrunners can show their school spirit by following these dress-up day ideas:
Monday: Rheem Spirit Wear Day! Wear Spirit Wear or Blue and Gold to celebrate Rheem!
Tuesday: SPORTS Day -- wear something to show off your favorite sport or sports team!
Wednesday: RAINBOW DAY!* – This is also PANORAMIC PICTURE DAY so we are going to turn the whole school into one, big rainbow for this photo op! Be sure to wear the following colors by grade level:
Kindergarten = PURPLE
1st grade = BLUE
2nd grade = GREEN
3rd grade = YELLOW
4th grade = ORANGE
5th grade = RED
*if you happen to have an extra shirt in the color for your grade level, please bring it to school in case a classmate forgets… it’s the Rheem Team way!

Thursday: Wackadoodle Day! – wear crazy patterns/colors together; inside out; backwards, etc.
Friday: PAJAMA DAY – wear your jammies to school! On this day, we will also celebrate our successful Read-a-thon by having a Read-In. Pajamas and books… what could be better?

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.
