Soul Shoppe Comes to Rheem
Posted 9/22/14

We are very proud of our positive school climate at Rheem!  Our on-going Lifeskills Program, combined with our most recent focus to include “Growth Mindset” and “Mindfulness” practices in our classrooms, have helped us build a learning environment where all students feel safe and optimistic.


This year, by participating in a customized assembly program through Soul Shoppe, all students at Rheem will learn additional tools to help our school become even more “Big Hearted and Bully-Free”Our goal is to provide our students with effective communication tools to help them recognize their own and each other’s worth, rights, and needs.  By establishing a common language and practical strategies to communicate, our students will gain important problem-solving skills that will last a lifetime.


On Thursday, September 11, our students met Daniel, who will be returning to Rheem throughout the year to lead assemblies and classroom workshops.  At this first “Tools of the Heart” meeting, students learned how to effectively use “I-Message” and “Clean-Up” strategies see below to ask for what they need.  Every Rheem student was given a bookmark that lists the steps of these important communication tools.
