All Quacked Up But keeping His Word

It was promised that if the school met their goal for raising more money for the American heart Association than they did last year, then Mr. Pitcher would put on a duck and strut ....or waddle during lunch.  As you can see, our devoted principal kept his word!  We are proud of him and the students and parents for working together to raise $7000 for a worthy cause!

Fourth Grade Adventures

We went to Heritage Park on May 11, 2015.  We went to the park and started by riding the train and seeing the buildings that they have there.  Then we went to the school and acted like we were back in the time of the pioneers.  The school was only one big room.  One of the main rules was that ladies always go first.  The girls had to curtsy and the boys had to bow and then say their names.  In the pioneer school, if you were being disobedient or rowdy, you would have to stand in the corner with your arms help up behind your back.  If you continued to be rowdy, you had to hold books, and the

Jump for Heart

Friday was the culminating act for the raising of funds for the American Heart Association.  The children and teachers worked hard to meet the goal of raising more money than we did last year.

We made it and now Mr. Pitcher will be sporting a very stylish duck suit for an assembly.  What a good sport!

Pictured are the winners of the Jump-off for each grade level.  An uncooperative phone camera will hopefully produce the rest of the grade level winners and the winners of the "Most Money Raised" of the Jump-a-thon.  Watch for updates on this article.

Kindergartners Compare Seasons at Jolley's Ranch

Attributions: 

In the fall of 2014, Rees Kindergartners visited jolley's Ranch up Hobble Creek Canyon to study nature in the Fall.  Being junior scientists, these same Kindergartners returned to the ranch to observe the differences that Spring brings to nature.  They found green grass, bugs, worms, birds, spiders, sticks, green leaves, and lots of fun!  Lots of cute pictures were taken, but only these few would load because the website says the files were too large to upload.  It's all that beautiful green grass and bright beautiful children taking too many pixels of color.  Darn!
