On Wednesday, May 8th, Kindergartners gave strict instructions to the weatherman to hold off all rain at the appropriate times. The weather cooperated and Mothers of Rees Kindergartners enjoyed a picnic with their little darlings. The Kindergartners surprised their moms with books they had written about their mothers. These books were full of interesting information about their beloved mothers. From the looks of the faces on the Mothers in these pictures, a good time was had by all!
Many things were accomplished because of the annual Rees Elementary Jump-a-thon.

Second, heart problems were prevented through children participating in fun aerobic activities as they learned the joys of an active lifestyle.
