Message from the Principal

This next week is our last before Spring Break and, as such, it has been declared “Spirit Week” by our 5th grade Student Council.  Each day we will have “dress-up” opportunities to show our school spirit, leading up to our well-earned school-wide Pajama Day and Read-In on Friday, March 31stWe will also celebrate with Spirit Assemblies on Friday and will announce how much money we’ve collected in Read-a-thon donations at that time, so make sure you’ve sent yours in to be counted!


Also, please note that Friday, March 31, is a minimum day.  School will start at 8:25 for all students (including K – 2nd grade late birds) on that day.  Kindergarten students will be dismissed at 11:50, while 1st through 5th graders will have a 12:12 dismissal time.




This Week at Rheem is SPIRIT WEEK!


Rheem Roadrunners can show their school spirit by following these dress-up day ideas:


Monday: Rheem Spirit Wear Day! Wear Spirit Wear or Blue and Gold to celebrate Rheem!


Tuesday:  SPORTS Day -- wear something to show off your favorite sport or sports team!


Wednesday: RAINBOW DAY!* – This is also PANORMIC PICTURE DAY so we are going to turn the whole school into one, big rainbow for this photo op!  Be sure to wear the following colors by grade level:


                Kindergarten = PURPLE

                1st grade = BLUE

                2nd grade = GREEN

                3rd grade = YELLOW

                4th grade = ORANGE

                5th grade = RED


*if you happen to have an extra shirt in the color for your grade level, please bring it to school in case a classmate forgets… it’s the Rheem Team way!


Thursday: Wackadoodle Day! – wear crazy patterns/colors together; inside out; backwards, etc.


Friday: PAJAMA DAY – wear your jammies to school!  On this day, we will also celebrate our successful Read-a-thon by having a Read-In.  Pajamas and books… what could be better?



Also, this week… 5th – 12th grade Music Concerts!

Prepare to be impressed.  This week, 5th through 12th grade Moraga musicians from all three elementary schools, JM Intermediate School, and Campo High School will gather together to perform for the community.  All concerts are FREE and will be held at the Campolindo High School Performing Arts Center, beginning at 7:00 p.m.   Attend one or more as follows:


  • Tuesday, March 28 – Choir Night
  • Wednesday, March 29 – Strings Night

The finales of these epic concerts are not to be missed as the musicians from all 5 schools will perform together!

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.
