We have had a week packed with holiday happenings including: winter reading carnival, singing around the tree, choir performances, Christmas programs and our reading incentive awards activity. Even amid the festivities, our teachers are amazing and have wonderful, enriching activities planned for the students. Thank you to ALL who have planned, supported, and helped to make these activities successful for our wonderful students at Rees. Photos will be posted on our Facebook page, so please follow us there.
In fourth grade, we have been learning all about soil. This week we made an edible soil profile. The students had a great time choosing which food best represented the bedrock, subsoil, topsoil, and humus. Although, I think they enjoyed eating their soil even more!

Artists In Residence
There will be a showcase of the students’ art on Friday November 17th. Students who have been studying about Dance and Storytelling will perform at 1:30 in the gym. (Due to time restraints only a few students from each grade will be sharing their stories. Check with your student to find out if they are performing.)
Rees 2nd graders have been SOARING!
These students showed excellence in the classroom by doing a variety of things, such as bringing their take-home library book back each day, showing improvement in math and reading, working hard and being great examples to their classmates.
We had a great Math Pumpkin activity! We predicted, measured, weighed, and guessed how many pumpkin seeds there were in our pumpkins. Then we counted out the number of seeds in our pumpkins by putting the seeds into groups of 10. It is always amazing to everyone that just because a pumpkin is bigger than another, it doesn't mean that it is going to have more seeds that a smaller pumpkin.
