Jen Gasser, sixth-grade teacher at Rees Elementary, said, “I am very excited about the Nebo Foundation Grant of $300! Our wonderful principal will match those funds. Our grade has been wanting to get some high interest guided reading books at varying levels. It is our belief that we need to help students fall in love with reading. We can accomplish this by having well-loved books at our fingertips. This grant will allow us to purchase over 90 books for students to read. These books are bound to help students have amazing adventures at their fingertips.

Rees Elementary Kindergarten did a service project for the Spanish Fork Fire Department to say "Thank You For Your Helping Hands". Students traced and cut out their hands and made a poster for our AWESOME firemen. The students loved having the firemen come to our school. We are so grateful for our Spanish Fork Fire Department for keeping us safe and for all their hard work!
Mrs. Darrington's 2nd grade teamed up with Mrs. Hunt's 5th grade to learn how to do research on spiders, owls, bats, and pumpkins. They learned about the animal or plant's habitat, life cycles, and other interesting facts. It was fun for all, and they made a new friend!#ReesEaglesSOAR #SOAR #FocusOnStudentGrowth #EmpoweringStudents #EngagedLearning
The 4th grade had the opportunity for presenters who have attended true mountain men rendezvous to come visit. They taught them all about the tools, clothing and traps that they used back in the day. It was fun to see all of their objects up close and hear from men and women who truly know what it means to be mountain men.
Rees Elementary Student Council had the amazing opportunity to attend BYU Leadership Day. Students were able to go to workshops and learn the tools of leadership. They were served lunch and played games. Students were also able to witness leadership in action by watching Mr. Gull serve and support keynote speaker Meg Johnson. It was a great day to be a ReesEagle! #SOAR #ReesEaglesSOAR
