Our 4,5,6 grades had a great time on their visit to UVU.  Students were able to see a little bit of campus and watch a basketball game.  We are proud of our Eagles for choosing to SOAR and showing respect while on their trip.

The weather may not be changing very much, but our 5th graders got to learn about other changes in our lives.  We had a representative from The Discovery Gateway Children's Museum teach us about physical changes and chemical reactions.  We also got to do hands on experiments.  What a fun way to learn!

We are pleased to award Jen Gasser the Teacher of the Year for Rees Elementary 2018!   One of Jen's colleagues had this to say about her: 

"She is energetic, fun, willing to work, and she cares deeply about her students and their learning.  She has served as a debate coach and association rep, and has spend countless hours as a student council adviser planning many school-wide events like Warm the Soles, Ghosty Grams, and BYU conference.

Mountain Men


The library was transformed into a Mountain Man heaven last week with our visitors Brian and Paul Squires.  These men came to Rees to share their incredible knowledge with the 4th grades.   They held the students captive with their stories and details about their clothing, tools and history.  We appreciate them coming to share with us! 



TONIGHT 1/29/19 is Family Arts Night.  This is an opportunity for ALL Rees families to come and participate with their children in different art mediums.  We will have master artists in photography, visual arts, dance and storytelling here to share their talents with you.  We will begin at 6:00 pm, and have 4 twenty minute rotations.  Refreshments will be served at the end! 

Rees Family Arts Night


As part of our focus on different art mediums, we host a Family Arts Night every year.  This year it will be held on Monday January 29th, at 6:00.  We will meet in the gym and then families will have the opportunity to rotate and participate in the different art forms that your students have been learning about this year.  This is a super fun night and your whole family is invited.  Refreshments will be served.
