Today, in honor of Veterans Day, we had some very special visitors come and talk with the students. These Veterans have served in many branches of the military. It was wonderful to hear about their service and to honor them on this special day. Thank YOU Veterans for all you do. Your service in the past, today, and in the future is very much appreciated!
Veterans Day is a day for us all to honor all those brave men and women who have served and are serving our country with bravery, dedication, and sacrifice. Thank you Veterans for your service that we may all live in a free country and have a right to a free public education.
Congratulations to the Reflections contest winners for this year! Thank you to all the students who participated.

Rees Elementary students had the opportunity to listen to spooky stories that had been written, recorded and coded by fourth graders. The students put on some headphones, lifted sections of an illustration, and the story began to read to them. Our fourth graders are AMAZING! Way to Aim High to Achieve!
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.
