Message from the Principal
Hello everyone! We seem to be in “full swing” at Rheem: The Early/Late schedule started this week for K – 2nd graders; Student Leadership 5th graders are hard at work helping the school in many ways; the 4th/5th grade SWAT (Students Worried About Trash) are supporting all 1st – 5th graders to sort compostable/ recycled items from trash in the lunchroom; 4th grade Cross-Age Tutor Program will begin next week; and, most important, everyone seems happily settled into their classrooms and daily routines. It’s a good thing!
Parents, we want YOU to be “in the know” about all of our school goals! To that end, we have two very important Parent Education nights planned this fall. Please save these dates:
Thursday, Oct. 2: Introducing Writer’s Workshop
6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at Camino Pablo Multi-Use Room
Thursday, Nov. 6: Soul Shoppe Parent Night
6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at Rheem Multi-Use Room
You will receive more information on these Parent Nights as we get closer to these dates, but for now, make sure to reserve these date/times time on your calendars!
In other news, don’t forget that our Innisbrook Gift Wrap and Mixed Bag fundraiser continues through next week (and ends on Sept. 29). Remember, a full 50% of the sales come back to Rheem to support our PTA.

At Rheem, we believe that attention to students’ social-emotional development is a critical. Intuitively, we all know that students learn best when they feel both physically and emotionally safe. Therefore, we have made a concerted effort to help our students develop a “Growth Mindset” and appreciate “Mindfulness” practices. But, what does the research say?
Although research in these areas is relatively new, the Greater Good Science Center has compiled a list of research studies and results that show the benefits of exploring Mindfulness practices with students. Click HERE for this list, and read for yourself how mindfulness can make a positive impact on students’ physical health, psychological well-being, social skills, academic performance, and more.
