Congratulations to these first grade Rees Eagles. They were our January students of the month. Thanks for being great examples of how to S.O.A.R. Back Row (L-R) : Theresa Larios, Alex Applegate, Zoey Angeles, Gracie August, Bentley Romney, Zemicha Etienne, Alexandra Vasquez. Front Row (L-R) : Christopher Crouch, Quinn Bryan, Daphne Hill, Stella Gordon.
The weather may not be changing very much, but our 5th graders got to learn about other changes in our lives. We had a representative from The Discovery Gateway Children's Museum teach us about physical changes and chemical reactions. We also got to do hands on experiments. What a fun way to learn!
These students earned their brag tags for passing their addition, subtraction, or mixed math tests. Way to go math soaring students!
These students were chosen as students of the month for excellent work in class, improving math scores, having great attendance, being good friends and examples to their classmates, or improving in reading. Way to go 2nd graders!
We are pleased to award Jen Gasser the Teacher of the Year for Rees Elementary 2018! One of Jen's colleagues had this to say about her:
"She is energetic, fun, willing to work, and she cares deeply about her students and their learning. She has served as a debate coach and association rep, and has spend countless hours as a student council adviser planning many school-wide events like Warm the Soles, Ghosty Grams, and BYU conference.
Jen cares about her student's success! She spends countless weekend hours and early morning hours preparing for her students. She is willing to study, try, and revamp any lesson plan. Last year she helped mentor a student in her class. Because of her extra efforts he flourished in her class. He won the Freedom Festival Essay Contest, and was a finalist in the Wiggy Wash Essay Contest. Additionally, he won the school and district science fair. Jen saw he was capable and helped him become his best self."
Jen is a phenomenal teacher. She loves students, she works hard, and she is always optimistic. We are thrilled to honor her and thank her for being a Nebo Hero!

The library was transformed into a Mountain Man heaven last week with our visitors Brian and Paul Squires. These men came to Rees to share their incredible knowledge with the 4th grades. They held the students captive with their stories and details about their clothing, tools and history. We appreciate them coming to share with us!
