Photo and Article by Jen Gasser

Our Debate team has worked very hard this year!  We will be attending the District Debate Tournament on March 28th.  Team members have had to examine the topic of mandatory Draft, decide on an affirmative or negative stance, create an argument, and work their way through three rounds of debating other schools.  We want to wish congratulations to all those who have participated and good luck!  The Debate Team includes fifth and sixth grade students:  Eduardo Diaz, Jesus Ponce, Jessica Mendoza, Aiden Atwood, Evelyn Cluff, Abbie Johnson, Tohzmara Begay, Ben Eschamilla (not pictured), Koda Mars

Ms. Williams - Second Grade Teacher


I love teaching!  Some of my hobbies included hunting, photography and spending time with family!  I have taught for two years in Nebo.


I like turquoise, but I don’t like purple.

I like steak and potatoes, but I don’t like fish.

I like football, but I don’t like golf.

I like all fruit.

I like horses, but I don’t like snakes.

The best part about my job is listening to the funny things the kiddos say!

Mrs. Hunt - Fifth Grade Teacher


I grew up in Texas, and I’m pretty proud of this.  I married a local boy, Dave Hunt, so I’ve stayed in Utah.  We have two kids in our arms and one in our heart (Ian - 11, Maylynn - 8, Aiden - 5). I have taught for 23 years - 18 at Taylor Elementary in Payson and this is 5 at Rees.  My hobbies include shopping, reading, sleeping, and playing at DISNEYLAND with my kids.


I like green, but I don’t like brown.

I like Brick Oven’s Pasta, but I don’t like McDonald’s food.

All About Quadrilaterals


Second graders in Mrs. Keisel’s class have been exploring shapes.  It was decided that if a shape has 4 sides and 4 corners, it can be labeled as a quadrilateral.  We had fun exploring the shapes with pretzels and marshmallows.

Experimenting With Gravity

Jen Saxon

Mrs. Spencer's class spent a science rotation learning about force, motion, and gravity with Miss Saxon.  They got to do experiments involving gravity and how objects move or fall because of it.  They saw the effect of air resistance and friction on how the objects moved.  They were surprised to learn that just the weight of the object does not affect the speed as it falls.
