Maple Mountain High School football players visited Rees students.  Players read to students and had fun playing with them outside.  Thanks for coming!



Send your kid(s) out the door with their smiles because tomorrow, (Sept. 16) is picture day! 


Statue of Responsibility


Rees students were entertained with a visit from a couple of the members from the Harlem Globetrotters!  Peewee and Hollywood taught us about how to be responsible and why it’s important for us to have that characteristic.  Students were asked to give an example of how to be responsible.  Here are a few of their responses:

“Taking care of your Android or iPhone.”

“Doing your homework.”

And a favorite among teachers was: “Not yelling at your teacher.”

Back to School Celebration

Monday night was the night to kick off the beginning of the school year at Rees Elementary!  Families piled into the gym in anticipation to see UVU’s Green Man Group perform.  We heard from Miss Spanish Fork, the PTA president, and Clint to introduce the main event: GMG.  Oh boy, didn’t they come in as loud as ever!  Drums were played, ears were plugged, hands were clapping, and bodies were dancing!  It was so fun to see them interact with the audience and invite them to bang on the drums.  Hotdogs were served afterwards.

Back to School Celebration!

Don’t forget!  Monday, September 12 is our Rees Back to School Celebration!  A special performance from the Green Man Group will entertain us and hot dogs will be provided.  Party starts at 6:00 pm.  Hope to see you there!
