Message from the Principal

We enjoyed a busy week at Rheem!  In addition to the excitement of heavy rains, we held our school’s National Geo Bee (always a nail-biter) and attended inspiring Soul Shoppe “I’ve Got Your Back” workshops. 


Meanwhile, we are eagerly anticipating the beginning of our annual Rheem Read-a-thon on Thursday, January 18.  You’ll soon discover that there why this year’s Read-a-thon is destined to be “The Greatest Read-a-thon on Earth!”   Information will be coming home in the backpacks on Wednesday after our kick-off Spirit Assembly.  The kids can start readying and tallying their Read-a-thon hours on Thursday.

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.
