Students at Rees Elementary enjoyed another fun VIP lunch with Mr. Gull on Monday. Students were randomly chosen to attend the VIP lunch from the Principals 200 Board. Students get to be on the 200 board if they are nominated by a staff member for having positive behavior. We are so proud of our amazing REES EAGLES!!!
The Mission to Mars
By: Kaitlyn Wyatt
The Mission to Mars is a wonderful adventure that we did in Mr. Mendenhall’s 6th grade class. We simulated launching an astronaut into space and landing it on Mars safely. BRACE FOR IMPACT!!! PROTECTION IS NEEDED! Everybody is counting on you.
The PTA made the teachers feel extra special each day. On Monday, teachers were greeted with decorated classroom doors. So creative! Breakfast was served on Tuesday. Wednesday was dedicated to students giving notes and gifts to their teachers. A gift was given on Thursday, and on Friday, teachers were served lunch. We appreciate the support from the PTA! We know it’s hard work and they provide so many activities throughout the year for teachers and students. Thank you so much! We are lucky to have such a wonderful PTA! (Not all doors are pictured, but they were all fantastic!)

This is my fifteenth year teaching. I have been at Rees since the new school was built. I have taught first through third grades and second grade is my favorite. I am the oldest of 8 kids and grew up in Anaheim, California. I love being an aunt and spoiling my niece and nephews. I love to dance, take pictures, watch movings, look at the sky, bake cookies, and laugh with my family.
I like burgundy, but I don’t like tan.
I like pizza, but I don’t like lima beans.
Rees students have started the annual fundraiser for the American Heart Association. Students will be collecting donations that will go directly to the heart association. Packets were sent home with students on Tuesday. They are due Friday, April 28th which will also be our jump-a-thon event.
