Mrs. Gasser’s 6th grade class was able to participate in a special service project this week.  Students learned how to tie quilts and were able to tie 2 quilts for local charities. Even Mr. Gull was able to come down and get in on the action!

It’s All Greek to Me!

By Zach Hargraves

6th Grader

I have learned a lot at the new school, Rees, but my favorite was the Greeks Olympics.  The Olympics was our final celebration that we did on our unit about Ancient Greece. This included reading Percy Jackson, visiting with the Oracle of Delphi, and even reading articles about Greek philosophy and clothing.  

The first event that we did was the PTA’s Fun Run. But there are a lot more olympics that we did.
