This year is Mrs. Crandall's 26th year of teaching. She is the first to arrive at school, normally arriving before Mr. Burraston and Mr. Gull. Although she arrives early, she is still one of the last to leave each day as she meets with our team and we collaborate about the students and their needs. During her early morning time, she works to create materials that ensure the learning of the students is enhanced and for the success of her team. She is not concerned about her class only, but she does what she can to help the entire 5th grade.
Rees Elementary Student Council has done it again!

We have a unique opportunity to weigh in on the future of our community, while also earning funds for our school.

As part of our Red and Green Ribbon Week, the PTA is sponsoring their annual Fun Run on Friday, November 1st. Students will start at the back of the playground and run through the Northeast parking lot onto the road and make a loop around the Rees neighborhood.
Our 5th grade had the opportunity to learn about the 2 drug dogs SF has on the police force. Officer Smith and Officer Davis brought their dogs, Maverick and Iceman. The students learned where the dogs came from, how old they are, and how much work they are to train. Thank you to Officer Peterson for making this happen for us.
Jen Gasser, sixth-grade teacher at Rees Elementary, said, “I am very excited about the Nebo Foundation Grant of $300! Our wonderful principal will match those funds. Our grade has been wanting to get some high interest guided reading books at varying levels. It is our belief that we need to help students fall in love with reading. We can accomplish this by having well-loved books at our fingertips. This grant will allow us to purchase over 90 books for students to read. These books are bound to help students have amazing adventures at their fingertips.
Rees Elementary Kindergarten did a service project for the Spanish Fork Fire Department to say "Thank You For Your Helping Hands". Students traced and cut out their hands and made a poster for our AWESOME firemen. The students loved having the firemen come to our school. We are so grateful for our Spanish Fork Fire Department for keeping us safe and for all their hard work!
