October's victory assembly to celebrate Leaders of the Month, Top Crocs, and progress on our school-wide WIGs was held this morning. It all started with another victory lap around the school for Leaders of the Month and Top Crocs to be cheered on by their peers. Then the whole school gathered in the auditorium for the assembly. This student-led assembly highlighted a lot of exciting progress that has been made in term 1. Here are some highlights:

  • Our students have moved up a total of 96 reading levels!
  • In term 1, only 14 school tickets were given. That's less than half of the 30 tickets given out during term 1 last school year!
  • Mrs. Crowley's, Mrs. Hardman's, Mrs. Sumsion's, and Mr. Sedgwick's classes have earned doughnut parties for their exceptional cleanliness and quietness in the lunchroom this month.

At the end of the assembly, Mr. Duncan announced the winners from the Croc Card board who will get to have a party in the "Croc Cave" this afternoon. The Dance club also performed a fantastic number to a medly of Halloween-themed songs. 

Keep up the great work, crocs!

Mrs. Tew ~ 2nd Grade Teacher

Rees Elementary News - Fri, 10/28/2016 - 8:39am

This is my first year teaching at Rees and my third year teaching.  I have 2 kids who are in 3rd and 1st grade here at Rees.  We all love it!  I really enjoy reading and music.  I love to go to concerts, but I also love staying at home and spending time with my kids and my husband.

Some fun facts about Mrs. Tew:

I like purple, but I don’t like yellow.

I like pasta, but I don’t like sloppy joes.

I like gymnastics, but I don’t like volleyball.

I like kiwi and cherries, but I don’t like cantaloupe.

I like penguins, but I don’t like spiders.

The best part about my job is watching kids get pulled into a great book!
