Town Of Moraga

Third Graders at Rheem Elementary Weigh in on their Visions

Ann Ralph, a third grade teacher at Rheem School, invited Town Manager Jill Keimach to this year’s Read-a-Thon, where her students attentively (or politely) listened to a story about Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in Major League Baseball. In an open question session, the students used persuasive skills they are currently learning in the classroom to discuss their individual visions and ideas. Their suggestions ranged from having more bicycle trails, more recycling containers at the Commons Park, protecting animal habitat, building a public swimming pool for the entire Town, and replacing play structures. They also asked if contractors wanted to build tall buildings in Town, who makes decisions on development, and if Jill’s job was hard and, if so, whether she liked it (yes).
