The Mission to Mars is a wonderful adventure that we did in Mr. Mendenhall’s 6th grade class.  We simulated launching an astronaut into space and landing it on Mars safely. BRACE FOR IMPACT!!! PROTECTION IS NEEDED! Everybody is counting on you.

Teacher Appreciation Week

Submitted by angie.keisel on

The PTA made the teachers feel extra special each day.  On Monday, teachers were greeted with decorated classroom doors.  So creative!  Breakfast was served on Tuesday.  Wednesday was dedicated to students giving notes and gifts to their teachers.  A gift was given on Thursday, and on Friday, teachers were served lunch.  We appreciate the support from the PTA!  We know it’s hard work and they provide so many activities throughout the year for teachers and students.  Thank you so much!  We are lucky to have such a wonderful PTA!

Sheep!  Tomato!  Bee!  That’s right.  Harward Farms had those and a whole bunch more!  It was Farm Field Days and the second graders visited the farm on Thursday.  We learned all about agriculture.  Students participated in several activities to help them understand how agriculture is part of our everyday lives.  They made a “living necklace”, learned about proper handwashing and the food groups, discovered Z.I.P (zinc, iron, protein) is in beef, learned about tractor safety and where the water we use in the valley comes from, what’s needed for plants

Ms. Dekker - 2nd Grade Teacher

Submitted by angie.keisel on

This is my fifteenth year teaching. I have been at Rees since the new school was built.  I have taught first through third grades and second grade is my favorite.  I am the oldest of 8 kids and grew up in Anaheim, California.  I love being an aunt and spoiling my niece and nephews.  I love to dance, take pictures, watch movings, look at the sky, bake cookies, and laugh with my family.


I like burgundy, but I don’t like tan.

I like pizza, but I don’t like lima beans.
