School News



This year, Nebo School District is moving to a more paperless registration.  This will allow you to register online on your own timeline and in the convenience of your home. Online Registration begins Satuday, July 1st and runs through July 31st.  I encourage you to take the time in the coming weeks to register online.  If you complete registration during this time, there is no need to come in during Walk-in Registration.  Once you have registered, you will be able to view your students' teacher on SIS beginning August 1st.  To register, click on the link below.

We are delighted to announce that our very own Jesus Ponce, a recent 6th grade graduate of Rees Elementary, was awarded the Freedom Award in the 2017 Freedom Festival Essay Contest.  This is the highest award given in each age category.  An excerpt from his speech reads "I am a proud American born from a Mexican heritage.   Thanks to this country,  my parents have a good life. I am very thankful for the sacrifice of every veteran. In America we are cared for by the government. This is what freedom means to me.

Teacher Changes For Next Year

Amy Darrington

The end of every school year is welcomed with happiness for the accomplishments and memories made, and sadness for the changes that it brings.  We are sad to lose many of our friends this year and appreciate all they have done for the students at Rees Elementary.   We wish them the very best in their future endeavors. "Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget."  G. Randolph
