With Hurricane Harvey being such a heartbreaking disaster, the students wanted to reach out and help other elementary aged students in Texas because many have lost all their school supplies and schools. We want to come together as a school community to help school children affect by Hurricane Harvey.  To do this we are going to designate Wednesday September 6th as "Helping Hands for Harvey Day"! We are going to ask that students bring $1 and dress as a "Texan" (western/cowboy attire) on this day. All the money we collect will be sent to Texas to help school children in need. Fourth Graders will come around Wednesday afternoon to collect the donations from each classroom.  We hope you will encourage your students to get involved! Our goal as a school is to raise $1,000! Thanks for being involved!

What S.O.A.R stands for in the words of a student

Marissa Jackson, a 5th grader in Mrs. Crandall's class shared this essay about the new S.O.A.R theme:

At school we have a motto called S.O.A.R.  Each letter means different things.  S stands for Serve and Support.  O means Own Your Actions and Your Words.  A is Aim High and Achieve.  Last is R which is Respect.   We follow this S.O.A.R. motto in the learning areas, cafeteria, hallways, and in the bus, bike, and walking areas.  Each week we focus on a letter at a time.  This week we are focusing on letter S.  Then we will focus on the other letters for the next few weeks.  We are Rees Eagles and we S.O.A.R. high.

Another Chromebook Cart!

The 5th grade is getting good use out of its second chromebook cart!  Here's what two fifth graders have to say about using chromebooks...

Collin Anderson--

I like the fact that we are using Chromebooks in fifth grade.  They are fun to use and very handy when doing research.  The fact that they are fun to use even when doing something that isn’t as fun.  They also are portable unlike the computers in the computer lab which makes it easy to get in groups.  I think that if I were to rate it from one to ten, I’d give it about a twenty-five.

 

Abigail Peay--

In the fifth grade we use the chromebooks in a lot of fun ways.  One example is we have kidblog which we have some really fun writing assignments.  Some of the writing assignments are writing a summary of a book and people can see your essays and tell you what they think about it.  

Some other fun things are what I’m doing right now.  It is a lot of fun to write and add pictures and also google slides is so much fun.  I love playing math games and typing games on the computers and even though it’s learning it is a lot of fun.  (learning is the best thing ever I love to learn.)  

Mrs. Woods taught us how to make an Adobe Spark.  I did not even know what that was until she showed us.  Mrs. Woods also had a guy (Myles Peterson) come in that should us a bunch of hacks and shortcuts.  

This is only some of the fun things that we have done on the chromebooks.

Wildly Important Goals

Yesterday's WIG assembly featured several teachers strutting down the red carpet wearing hilarious wigs. But this assembly was really about introducing this year's wildly important goals for the whole school. The first WIG is for the entire school to collectively move up 1,800 reading levels. The second WIG is for all students to be in their classroom by 9:00 90% of the time. This will take extra help from parents to make sure that kids get out the door on time. The rewards for reaching the reading WIG is that the kids will have a water party at the end of the year. If a class also reaches their attendance WIG, then the teachers have to get wet too!

We can't wait to see the kids' progress!
