The fourth grade students participated in a book club this past month. Students chose a book, read each day, and met weekly to discuss the book in student led groups. Each book showcased a character who had to deal with a lot of struggle, because of the beliefs of others around them. However, each character showed strength, perseverance, and patience through the struggle in a variety of ways. As a book club group, students discussed how the character from their book overcame struggle.
This week students or parents can purchase Ghosty Grams (a note and a small treat) to send to a someone in the school. They will be available all this week and on Halloween before school and at lunch time. The Ghosty Grams will be delivered to the students at the end of each day. The price is $0.25 each or 4 for $1.00
Fourth Grade had the opportunity to see the Utah Symphony perform right here in Spanish Fork. The symphony was kind enough to come down to Maple Mountain High School and perform for all the fourth graders in our district. The students wore their Sunday best to watch the performance. The symphony taught us about fairy tales told through music. We heard some familiar songs and some that were new. It was a great experience and our Rees Eagles really SOARed during the performance!
Rees 5th grade students had Michael Brooks from the Bobby Lawrence Academy talk to them about standing up to bullies. He also taught them some karate moves. Students had a fun time learning during this assembly. Thank you Bobby Lawrence Academy for teaching us!
