Message from the Principal

Rheem Team Spirit was shining bright at 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.  Last evening, the classrooms, computer lab, library, and even the hallways, were filled to the brim with impressive displays of innovative learning experiences.  Many thanks to all our dedicated teachers and hard-working students for making this inspiring evening possible! 

 

What we didn't see at Open House 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, Math Boost and TenMarks; the hands-on science labs that are organized Ms. Healy; the social/emotional support of our Kids/ Connection Program.  The list goes on and on.  Much of this 'behind the scenes" support is funded by generous donations from our community to the Moraga Education Foundation.  To date, we are still short of $2.2 Million goal. Please join the other Rheem families in supporting all our students and our school by paying off your pledges or donating today at www.moragaeducation.org.  It's not too late, and every dollar counts as we get ready to fund next year's critical programs.

 

And, of course, many thanks to our parents for the countless volunteer hours given to make Rheem the very special place that it is.   A successful school experience is truly a TEAM effort.  Together, we make it possible.

 

Best wishes to all for a wonderful 3-day weekend in celebration of Memorial Day!

 

Thank you!

If you’re the parent of a Rheem 3rd, 4th, or 5th grader, you’ve likely heard your child talk about the “SBAC tests.”  These “next-generation assessments” are aligned to the Common Core standards in English Language Arts and Math, are taken on the computer, and include performance-based tasks which require students to apply their knowledge and skills (rather than simply answer questions using a multiple-choice format).

Rheem’s 3rd – 5th graders will be taking a brief survey in the coming weeks so that we can better measure their comfort-levels with both the technology components and the specific content of these tests.  A HUGE thank you goes out to our computer teacher, Ms. Gillian O’Connell for facilitating the SBAC testing sessions as well as collecting this valuable feedback from our students.

Parents should expect to receive individual score reports in approximately 8 weeks after all students have completed testing (late July).  To learn more how the SBAC tests are designed to improve teaching and learning as well as to provide accurate feedback, click HERE

Mindset Matters

Mindset Matters
May 29, 2015

At our last Spirit Assembly, students were reminded that they each are “unique in all the world!”  We talked about how they each have strengths (gifts!) and the opportunity to share those gifts with others.  Here are two fun videos for kids that emphasize this message.  Click HERE to watch Will.i.am’s guest appearance on Sesame Street, singing “What I Am” (I will always be the best me I can be… I’ll keep getting stronger) and HERE to watch “A Pep Talk from Kid President” (You were made to be awesome).  These are inspiring messages for kids and adults alike.  Enjoy these whenever you need a little encouragement!
