This week has been a very busy one for Hobble Creek Students. They are learning a lot about ways to be drug free and the importance of making good choices while having a lot of fun. Monday we kicked off the week with a really fun assembly with a professional story teller, Wendy Gourley on making great choices. Tuesday the students were all wearing red and Clifford the dog made an appearance, Wednesday the students wore their favorite sports team, and today they are having fun with crazy hat, hair or sock day and signing their pledge to be drug free. Make sure to ask your students what they think and understand about being drug free, how you can make a committment as a family to be drug free and the importance of making smart choices.

If you were a bird, what type of personality would you have?

Sixth-grade students had that oppertunity with their bird sculptures. After paper mache' and paint students began giving then all kinds of personality with any materials they could think of. What a great job they did!

Kid's Marathon Kick-off Information

Rees Elementary News - Wed, 02/08/2017 - 3:57pm

Former Rees Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Brown, visited our school on and presented the Provo City Kid’s Marathon.  Students will begin running laps around the school from now until marathon day to complete the full 26.3 miles.  Laps will be tracked at school and the kids will have the opportunity to finish the 1.3 miles in Provo this spring.  Our participating numbers have been growing each year and hope to see it continue!  When a student has registered for the race (please let your child’s teacher know), he/she will receive a print out of a shoe to color with their name on it and placed outside of their classroom.  Since Meadow Brook will be joining in on this tradition, there’s a friendly competition going on between the two schools.  Our goal is to have more participators than the Meadow Brook Mustangs.  Let’s go, Eagles!  The race will be on May 6, 2017 in Provo.

Mrs. Simmons - Speech/Language Pathalogist

Rees Elementary News - Wed, 02/08/2017 - 1:02pm

This is my first year as a speech language pathologist and I am loving it!  I have been married for 3 years.  We enjoy playing sports, hiking and playing board/card games.  I also enjoy playing the piano and ceramics.


I like purple, mint and coral, but I don’t like brown.

I like sushi, but I don’t like hot dogs.

I like football, soccer, ultimate frisbee, but I don’t like baseball.

I like oranges, but I don’t like grapefruit.

I like puppies, but I don’t like cats.

The best part about my job is building good relationships with my students and seeing improvement in their ability to communicate with their peers.

 Kindergarten students were special guests today at a wedding for Miss Q and Mr. U.!!    The students prepared for the wedding by making crowns and bowties covered with words that have the qu combination.  With Mrs. Brown officiating, these two letters were united together so they will forever help each other make the /kw/ sound in all words where q u are together.  Like in the words quick, quiet, quilt, and quack.   After the wedding students enjoyed a little wedding cake to celebrate the happy day.  Congratulations Miss Q and Mr U !
