Tomorrow, March 31, 2021, is the last day of our Rodeo Reading Challenge. Our school has been working hard to reach our goal of 390,000 minutes. Students have been asked to read at least 30 minutes a day for the month of March. We will be awarding students with prizes coming up soon. Be sure to turn in all reading minutes before Friday. Tomorrow we will celebrate by wearing our western wear to round up reading! Keep Aiming High to Achieve Eagles!

In the middle of the Rodeo Reading Challenge Month, Rees Eagles Kamryn Martinson, Sarah Dye, Zeke Etienne, Ryan Peterson, Maria Lundgreen, Rylee Robinson, and Samantha Clark have set the stage to Aim High and Achieve and to READ MORE! These 6th grade students made a pledge to read one hour more today if they collected 50 signatures.
Rees teachers are preparing for lesson studies for each grade. Teachers in grades K-6 are working closely with our literacy coach, Shalese Rogers, to improve their small group instruction. In the next few weeks, grade levels will observe their teammates teach a lesson to a focus group in their class. Today, all teachers collaborated across grade levels to create norms (expections) for all teacher as they learn together during this lesson study process. It was great to see and hear teachers talking and collaborating together. WAY TO SOAR REES TEACHERS!
During the month of March, Rees students have a challenge to read a total of 390,000 minutes for the whole school. Mr. Gull will be visiting with students and encouraging them to increase their normal reading time during this month and read AT LEAST 30 minutes a day. Students who complete the challenge will have their name entered into a drawing to win prizes at the end of the month. These prizes include new cowboy boots, hats, and pants. Let's Aim High to Achieve students!
Last Thursday, Loveland Living Plant Aquarium did a presentation for fourth grade and Mrs. Hirst's class. Fourth graders are learning about animal structures and habitats in science, so the presentation was centered around that. The presenters did a great job helping students understand Utah’s three environments and what animals can be found there. They brought two guests with them as well! Kevin the Gardner snake and Tut the mountain king snake. It was an educated fun experience for everyone!
Congratulations to these AMAZING Rees students! These students were selected by their classroom teachers as students of the month for the month of February. They were selected because they know how to SOAR and are working hard to do their best! Keep up the GREAT WORK Eagles!
