Don’t Miss this Thursday’s Science Fair

All Families Invited!

The 30th Annual Rheem Science Fair is scheduled for THIS Thursday, April 27 from 5:30 pm-7:00 pm.  In addition to the 3rd – 5th grade projects on display, there will be booths, displays and demos by Little Medical School, PG&E, and Spectrum of Science.


Better still, plan on having dinner at the Science Fair!  5th graders will raise funds by selling pizza, beverages, and other goodies.  Picnic tables will be set up outside so that families can enjoy dinner al fresco!  It promises to be a fun and educational event for all ages.  See you there!


Many, many thanks to our Science Fair coordinators Svetlana Kuzmichenko, Bret Levenfeld, Esmeralda Sanchex, Doris Chen, and Ivan Cazares

Did You Know?

2017-2018 Instructional Calendar Approved

Recently, the Moraga School Board approved the 2017-2018 calendar, complete with dates for such events as Back-to-School Night and Open House for the 2017-2018 school year.  Did you know that Rheem’s Back-to-School Night is scheduled for Thursday, August 24, 2017?  School Holidays and Staff Development Days are also noted.  It’s not too early to make sure you have your home and school calendars “synced” to ensure good attendance and to not miss any important events.  Click HERE for the 2017-2018 MSD calendar.  


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.
