Famous Figures in 5th grade

Submitted by amy.darrington on Thu, 02/22/2018 - 13:48

Our 5th graders have been working hard to bring famous figures to life in the wax museum.  Famous people like Bethany Hamilton, Mitt Romney, Paul Revere, Andre Agassi, Lucille Ball, and Don Knotts were represented today.  We are proud of our students for Aiming High to Achieve by choosing a famous person, studying about them, writing about them and memorizing their part to perform.  They did a fabulous job!  **Follow and Like the Rees Facebook page to see more pictures.**

Our 4,5,6 grades had a great time on their visit to UVU.  Students were able to see a little bit of campus and watch a basketball game.  We are proud of our Eagles for choosing to SOAR and showing respect while on their trip.

Big Reactions in 5th grade

The weather may not be changing very much, but our 5th graders got to learn about other changes in our lives.  We had a representative from The Discovery Gateway Children's Museum teach us about physical changes and chemical reactions.  We also got to do hands on experiments.  What a fun way to learn!

We are pleased to award Jen Gasser the Teacher of the Year for Rees Elementary 2018!   One of Jen's colleagues had this to say about her: 

"She is energetic, fun, willing to work, and she cares deeply about her students and their learning.  She has served as a debate coach and association rep, and has spend countless hours as a student council adviser planning many school-wide events like Warm the Soles, Ghosty Grams, and BYU conference.

Mountain Men

The library was transformed into a Mountain Man heaven last week with our visitors Brian and Paul Squires.  These men came to Rees to share their incredible knowledge with the 4th grades.   They held the students captive with their stories and details about their clothing, tools and history.  We appreciate them coming to share with us!
