Reading is celebrated with gold at Rees Elementary School in Spanish Fork, Utah.  First grade has added a new element to the Road to Success Reading Program.  All first graders are asked to read at least 20 minutes every day of the week.  Each student then records their minutes they have read.  At the end of the week, their reading calendar is returned to their teacher.

Students in Mrs. Bethany Ericksen’s kindergarten class at Rees Elementary School have completed a marathon (26.2 miles).  Beginning in January, the students ran twice a week and kept track of their mileage.  On April 24th, the students participated in the school wide 1 mile Kids Race which was also the final mile of their marathon.  Dr. Garron Miller at Utah Valley Pediatrics in Payson was their sponsor which allowed the students to get marathon shirts and finisher medals.
