Our very own Mr. Burraston, AKA "Mr. Jimmy," received an awesome award today. Jimmy was awarded the Outstanding Support Staff by the District 10 PTA. Anyone who knows Jimmy knows what an amazing person he is. Not only does he scrub and shine the school, he does it with a giant smile. He is a delight to work with and we appreciate everything he does to make sure Rees is a safe and happy place to be. We love Mr. Jimmy!!
Our 5th graders have been working hard to bring famous figures to life in the wax museum. Famous people like Bethany Hamilton, Mitt Romney, Paul Revere, Andre Agassi, Lucille Ball, and Don Knotts were represented today. We are proud of our students for Aiming High to Achieve by choosing a famous person, studying about them, writing about them and memorizing their part to perform. They did a fabulous job! **Follow and Like the Rees Facebook page to see more pictures.**

The weather may not be changing very much, but our 5th graders got to learn about other changes in our lives. We had a representative from The Discovery Gateway Children's Museum teach us about physical changes and chemical reactions. We also got to do hands on experiments. What a fun way to learn!
