Our 5th grade had the opportunity to learn about the 2 drug dogs SF has on the police force.  Officer Smith and Officer Davis brought their dogs,  Maverick and Iceman.  The students learned where the dogs came from, how old they are, and how much work they are to train.  Thank you to Officer Peterson for making this happen for us.

Jen Gasser, sixth-grade teacher at Rees Elementary, said, “I  am very excited about the Nebo Foundation Grant of $300!  Our wonderful principal will match those funds.  Our grade has been wanting to get some high interest guided reading books at varying levels.  It is our belief that we need to help students fall in love with reading.  We can accomplish this by having well-loved books at our fingertips.  This grant will allow us to purchase over 90 books for students to read.  These books are bound to help students have amazing adventures at their fingertips.

Rees Elementary Kindergarten did a service project for the Spanish Fork Fire Department to say "Thank You For Your Helping Hands".  Students traced and cut out their hands and made a poster for our AWESOME firemen.  The students loved having the firemen come to our school. We are so grateful for our Spanish Fork Fire Department for keeping us safe and for all their hard work!

 Mrs. Darrington's 2nd grade teamed up with Mrs. Hunt's 5th grade to learn how to do research on spiders, owls, bats, and pumpkins.  They learned about the animal or plant's habitat, life cycles, and other interesting facts.   It was fun for all, and they made a new friend!#ReesEaglesSOAR #SOAR #FocusOnStudentGrowth #EmpoweringStudents #EngagedLearning
