PTA Honors Volunteers, Miss Saxon and Mrs. Thomas

We have some amazing volunteers and staff at Rees Elementary and a few of them were recently recognized by our PTA.

Mr. and Mrs. Bliss have been coming every week for years and years to volunteer in Mrs. Memmott's Kindergarten class.  They are delightful and we love having their help.  

Mrs. Kathleen Moore is a familiar face at Rees also.  She volunteers in a variety of ways around the building including reading with students, and helping with the Artist in Residence and the Reading Carnival.  We appreciate all of her help!
