Message from the Principal
This Week at Rheem … is FAMILY WEEK!
All Rheem families are encouraged to set aside time this coming week -- Monday, March 20 through Friday, March 24 – to simply have some fun together! To support this effort, Rheem teachers have agreed to greatly reduce homework for the week, with the intention of creating “extra” TIME to enjoy an activity as a family.
And, what a better way to celebrate the end of Family Week than by attending Rheem’s First Annual Variety Show on Friday, March 24, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Multi-Use Room. Doors open at 6:00.
Family Week is also a time to consider families in need. A week-long food drive to benefit the Contra Costa County Food Bank will be held, and collection barrels will be available at the Variety Show for your donations.
Click HERE to download a Family Week recording sheet (a hard-copy was sent home in the backpacks). Students who return photos and/or drawings of their family’s activities will see their work displayed on a Family Week Mural in the Multi-Use Room.

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:
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.
