Two representatives from UMPA (Utah Municipal Power Agency) delivered the Think Energy presentation to Rees fifth graders on November 9, 2011.  The presentation taught students about a wide range of important issues related to energy consumption.  They taught the difference between renewable and non-renewable sources of energy.  The students were amazed to learn that over 80% of Utah's energy comes from coal, a non-renewable source.  Utah uses very little renewable resources such as wind, solar, or hydro power.

On October 17, the multi-grade classes went on a field trip to Camp Maple Dell.  This was in partnership with the Boy Scout’s program called “Learning for Life”.  First of all, the fall colors were amazing!  The camp ranger said he had never seen the colors so brilliant in the past 16 years he’d been there.
