Students dressed like their favorite hero got to meet with real community hereos today at Rees. We had the privilege of having local police officers, an EMT, and firefighters come to Rees for a safety fair. Students were able to explore the emergency vehicles and ask our community heroes questions about their jobs. We appreciate our community heroes and ALL they do for our safety.
Monday is the beginning of Red/Green Ribbon Week. Red Ribbon is for saying no to drugs, and Green Ribbon for safety and anti-bullying. We encourage you to support your student in participating in these fun events and to be a part of our school spirit. Thank you to our PTA for putting these activities together. We love what you do for our school!
Every single day in Utah, businesses are donating time and money to benefit education. Nebo School district is no exception. We had the opportunity today to honor the many many business owners who generously provide time and money to our schools. Rees Elementary chose to honor Bill Summers and Maceys grocery store for being champions of education. If you've been to Maceys, you've seen Bill. He works side by side with his employees and is always helping meet customers needs. Bill has always been willing to donate food and supplies to our schools and we are so grateful.

Miss Nielson joins us this year in the 3rd grade. She is the middle child with two older brothers and two younger half brothers. Her bucket list includes learning to play the violin, finishing the book Unbroken, and seeing the Lion King on Broadway. In her spare time she enjoys hiking in the mountains and reading. She claims the strangest talent she has is reading a book and running at the same time. It's no surprise with all the reading she does that she loves to teach guided reading to her students. She also loves Babe Ruth candybars and would choose to eat at Zupas or Cafe Rio. Mi
As you admire the scarecrows on Main Street in Spanish Fork, be sure to notice the Rees Eagle. We are happy to debut our first scarecrow this year. It is located right in front of Central Bank. You'll notice it is sporting our new S.O.A.R logo. The letters stand for Serve and Support, Own our Actions and Words, Aim High to Achieve and Respect. This lovely eagle is the hard work of our student council and their amazing advisers Jen Gasser and Tonya Painter. Rees is proud to support the City of Spanish Fork in this fun display of fall spirit.
