Message from the Principal

Rheem Team Spirit was certainly shining bright at last Thursday’s Open House!  It’s always a great feeling to watch excited children and proud teachers share a year’s worth of memories with parents, siblings, and extended families.  On Thursday, the classrooms, computer lab, library, and even the hallways, were filled to the brim with impressive displays of innovative learning experiences.  And, our school garden has never looked more beautiful, thanks to the recent success of our Family Work Day.  Many thanks to all our dedicated teachers and hard-working students for making this inspiring evening possible! 


What you didn't see on Thursday is equally important and deserves recognition: our teaching assistants who support our teachers and students on a daily basis; intervention programs such as Reading Tutor, and “Power Half-Hour;” the hands-on science labs that are organized by Ms. Healy; our K – 5th grade Music programs; the social/emotional support of our Kids’ Connection Program.  The list goes on and on.  Most of this 'behind the scenes" support is funded by generous donations from our community to the Moraga Education Foundation.  As of this weekend, we are still $300,000 short of our $2.2 Million goal. So, just in case you haven’t given yet, please give today  Give because you loved Open House! Give because you are grateful your child has access to the arts and technology!  Give because you are aware that MEF supports every student, and every teacher, every day!  It's not too late, and every dollar counts as we get ready to fund next year's critical programs.

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.
