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!

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!

Penny Wars is underway here at Rees Elementary, and will continue until Friday the 26th.  For those unfamiliar, every year we collect pennies to purchase shoes for the Warm the Soles organization.  Classes each have their own cans and are competing to see who can earn the most money.  Every penny dropped in the class can earns 1 point.
