Third graders worked on building the tallest "Christmas Tree" for Fun Friday last week! Their building materials consisted of gumdrops, toothpicks, and three large marshmallows. It was a tricky challenge, but two teams tied for the tallest freestanding structure at 9 inches each. The winning teams were with Brikelle, Pressley, Danna, Esteban, CJ, Callen, Lizzy, Betzy, Kaden, and Jack. Nice work!

The Rees Elementary annual gingerbread house winners were picked today during a school assembly. All students were given a ticket earlier this week and put their ticket in a drawing for their favorite gingerbread house. The winners take their prize home to enjoy during the holidays! Congratulations students! Thank you Rees staff for such fantastic houses this year!
Mr. Mendenhall’s class was taught a Native American Unit by Shoshana Begay this past November, in honor of Native American Heritage month. Shoshana is from the Navajo tribe, and is a teacher in Nebo Title VI Indian Education. She loves teaching about her culture, and she wanted to teach other students about true Native American cultural as to avoid any misconceptions. Mr. Mendenhall’s class had the opportunity to learn about Native American contributions, clothing, music, dwellings, beliefs, famous individuals, and arts and crafts!
