This week, on Valentine's Day, Rees EEC and 1st-5th grade students were able to have a wonderful morning at the theater watching Sing 2.  It was the perfect day to kick back, relax, and have fun together before the Valentine's activities at school.  Some students said that was their first time ever being in a theater.  After returning to school, students were saying to each other, "That was the BEST day ever!"
