Gingerbread House Winners

Submitted by heidi.groneman on Wed, 12/30/2020 - 15:44

These students were the lucky winners of the annual Rees Gingerbread Contest.  Rees Faculty collaborates in creating their team's masterpieces.  Students vote for their favorite one and then one student name is drawn for each gingerbread house.  The lucky winners get to take the gingerbread houses home with them. Thank you Rees staff for a job well done and CONGRATULATIONS to our winning students!

6th Grade Buddies Write Stories

Submitted by heidi.groneman on Sat, 12/19/2020 - 13:15

One of the highlights of second grade is when the sixth graders write and illustrated a story with a 2nd grade buddy as the main character. After a month or more of hard work, the sixth graders preset their finished stories to their second grade buddies. The second graders love being the characters in their own books. Thank you sixth grade for your amazing work!

Congratulations to Haizlee who was caught SOARing by someone in herclass.  Her name was written on an Eagle Eye slip in Miss Saxon's 3rd grade class and entered into a drawing. When Haizlee's name was selected,  she chose to give a HIGH 5 to Mr. Gull.   WAY to SOAR Haizlee!! Keep up the GREAT work!

Thank You Mrs. Cooper!

Rees Elementary Faculty would like our AMAZING school nurse, Diane Cooper, to know how much we appreciate her! She is absolutely the BEST! Not only is she extremely hard working, but she is fun, attentive, organized, and always there to lend a hand.  This year, Mrs. Cooper has spent countless hours, outside of her regular work schedule, as a front-line healthcare worker keeping track of everything that is going on with the COVID-19 at our school (and several other schools).
