Acting is .   .   . by Shannon Vance

Acting is a way of telling a story with your body.  You must tell the story with feelings.  When you act you put yourself in the character’s shoes.  You act out what you would do if you were in their position. 

People in the islands like to express their feelings by songs, by dances and by their body actions.  They also believe in different things then us, such as idols, myths and even reincarnation.

On Wednesday, May 8th, Kindergartners gave strict instructions to the weatherman to hold off all rain at the appropriate times.  The weather cooperated and Mothers of Rees Kindergartners enjoyed a picnic with their little darlings.  The Kindergartners surprised their moms with books they had written about their mothers.  These books were full of interesting information about their beloved mothers.  From the looks of the faces on the Mothers in these pictures, a good time was had by all!

What a Crack Up!

Kindergartners at Rees Elementary became scientists right before Spring Break.  They experimented with physics using Humpty Dumpty.  Families brainstormed ideas for what kind of coveringswould keep their Humpty (a boiled egg) safe from Mr. Pictcher's famed roof tossing.  Protective coverings were chosen, and Humpties were put inside and  brought to school.  Parents gathered to the Kindergarten testing grounds to watch.  Mr. Pitcher and Mr. Jimmy used their athletic skills to climb up on the roof to throw the eggs off.  They seemed to enjoy the assignment.
