On February 8, 2016, Rees Elementary held a Family Art Night.  Professional artists were chosen by a group of teachers, who volunteer their time, to gather information and write a grant to receive this amazing opportunity for Rees students.  We are so grateful for those teachers!

Students from Mrs. Keisel’s second grade class had been earning snowballs (a.k.a. cotton balls) throughout January.  Snowballs were earned for positive behavior to spend at the Snowman Soup Station (a.k.a hot chocolate bar) at the end of the month.  It was a perfectly chilly day for hot chocolate!


Artist-In-Residence Art Share Assembly

Submitted by angie.keisel on Wed, 02/17/2016 - 19:06

Students from Kindergarten to third grade performed on Thursday, February 11.  The previous two weeks, students have been learning one of the following different art forms: visual arts, musical theater, storytelling and creative movement. Each art form enriched students’ knowledge, abilities and talents.  Some groups performed on stage while other projects are displayed at the school.  Thank you to the artists who spend so much of their time preparing and teaching the students at our school.  The students did an amazing job!
