Mrs. Montgomery's morning and afternoon classes enjoyed learning about manners and then putting their new knowledge to practice. The children dressed up in their nice clothes, looking like perfect little ladies and gentlemen. Mrs. Montgomery gave a lesson on manners and then Parent Helpers came in with a delicious traditional Thanksgiving feast. The children displayed good table manners such as waiting for everyone to be served before eating, putting their napkins on their laps, chewing with their mouths closed and not talking with their mouths full. They said, "yes, please" when their "waitresses" asked if they wanted each food item. Instead of saying, "No thank you", they tried saying, "May I try a little please?" The students talked quietly while they ate and spoke of pleasant subjects. They cut their own meat and did not use their fingers to pick up their food. They asked to be excused from the table when all were finished. It was truly a wonder to behold! Thank you parents who prepared this feastly experience for our very proper and polite children!
Fourth Grade students at Rees Elementary wrote letters to Veterans thanking them for their service. After a Veterans Assembly at the school, students went up and gave the letters to the Veterans who had come. They were grateful for this token of respect.
In October Mrs. Jex's fourth grade class practiced and performed "The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything". Lisa Bean, the district drama specialist helped us get started. We performed for our parents and many classes at Rees Elementary.

Rees-sponsible students got the privilege of watching Rich Wieber and his son perform bicycle stunts in a recent reward assembly. These talented stunt riders showed students what they could do with their bikes, and what they could do physically by living healthy drug free lives. Mr. Wieber told the story of how he worked and saved to buy his first bike. He is a great example of setting a goal and working to obtain it. The younger stunt rider showed the students what practice can do for you. He was able to jump over two staff members, Mr. Burraston and Mr. Wright! They were so glad that through practice, this stunt had been perfected!
The 6th had the great opportunity to listen to Janene Woolsey Baadsgaard. She taught us about the writing process. She gave us inspiration to follow our dreams, and work hard! It was fun to hear her talk about how she got her first book published. She has published 14 books.
