Mrs. Kristi Hansen is our new afternoon skill builder. Mrs. Hansen says her favorite part of the job is getting to be with kids. She says "they are great and so much fun." Mrs. Hansen has 4 boys and no girls. Her family lives on a farm and they have cows, lambs, chickens and cats. In her spare time she likes to run, scrapbook, make crafts and read. Her favorite restaurant is anything with Mexican food because she loves chips and salsa. The strangest talent that she has is that her thumbs are double jointed and she can twist them around backwards.
Mrs. Heidi Groneman is joining us this year in 2nd grade. She has taught school for 5 years, and has taught both 6th and 2nd grade. Her husband is also a teacher. They have 4 children, 3 boys and 1 girl. Her favorite trip was to Disneyland, and someday she would like to travel to New Zealand or Hawaii. Her favorite restaurant is Carrabas and she loves peanut butter M&M's. Someday she would like to get a Masters degree and finish her basement. If she won the lottery she would pay off her house, help her family, and travel. We are so excited to have Mrs.

We are looking forward to a wonderful year!
Rees Eagles S.O.A.R! This year Rees is implementing a new PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Support) using the acronym S.O.A.R. In our opening assembly we learned that S stands for Serve and Support, O stands for Own our Actions and Words, A stands for Aim High and Achieve and R stands for Respect. As part of the kick off event, students had an exciting visit from Sundance, a Golden Eagle from the Great Basin Rehab located here in Spanish Fork. They were able to learn some neat facts about Eagles that go along with S.O.A.R.
The school has been a buzz with lots of happy children and excited teachers today. We are so thrilled to have all of our little Eagles back in the nest for another great school year. As Mr. Gull and Mrs. Darrington walked through the school this morning, there were classes learning procedures, taking tours of the school, playing get to know you games, reading books, learning about super hero powers, and even getting the wiggles out with a quick dance party. It has been a GREAT day!!!
We are so excited to welcome our Rees Eagles back to school! Please plan to attend the Back to School Openhouse.
