Message from the Principal

This next week is Parent Conference Week!  I hope you have your “Rheem Team Family Challenge” posted prominently to help you keep track of the different schedules each day.  Please note that Tuesday, Thursday and Friday will be shortened minimum days with an 11:45 dismissal for all 1st – 5th grade students.  Wednesday will follow the regular schedule, but remember; Wednesday is always an early dismissal day at 1:50 for 1st – 5th graders.  All kindergartners will arrive as “early birds” every day this week. 


Make sure you review the “Tips for a Successful Parent Conference so that you can make the most of this important meeting. It’s our hope that by working together, we can make this the most successful year possible for every student.

While you’re at school for your Parent Conference, be sure to stop by the Book Fair, which will be held in the Library beginning tomorrow (Monday).  Proceeds from this event will go to support our school library.   All classes will be visiting the Book Fair during the school day in the coming week; however open shopping hours are as follows:

MSD’s School Climate Survey Wants YOUR Feedback

Children learn best when they feel safe and secure at school.  The Moraga School District’s Elementary School Climate Survey provides an opportunity for parents to give important feedback to teachers and administrators about their child(ren)’s experience in this regard.


We hope ALL Rheem parents will take part in this survey, which should take no more than 5 minutes to compete.  The survey can be accessed by clicking HERE or through this link:


This survey will be open until Friday, Nov. 20, so please don’t hesitate to give us your thoughts. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with this valuable information!


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:

  •  Rheemarks: "Frank"ly Speaking – This weekly email (look for it on Sundays) is sent through Rheem's School Messenger System from Principal Frank.  Family email addresses are pulled from our data base (the info provided at registration) to make sure that ALL families receive this newsletter.  This newsletter focuses on current school events and issues.  Click HERE to view the most recent edition as well as to access Rheemarks archives.
  • PTA E-News – Rheem’s weekly PTA Newsletter is sent out on Wednesdays and limited to important information and updates about PTA programs, activities, opportunities, and more!  Once you sign up for PTA, you’ll start receiving these informative newsletters.
  • REMIND text messages -- It’s easy!  It’s quick!  It’s informative!  Last year, we began using a new system called REMIND to send quick “texts” to parents who sign-up for this service.  The one-way text messages come directly from the front office and are limited to brief, timely “Rheeminders.”  This is the best way to not miss an important due date or forget a minimum day!  To receive messages via text, simply text @rheem to 81010 or click HERE to download instructions.

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.
