FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Dear Rees Elementary Families,


I hope everyone enjoyed the "dash" of fall weather we had this past weekend. It has been a hot summer and I am sure everyone is looking forward to the next cold front.


If you have not held a fall parent/teacher conference with your child's teacher, please contact the school as soon as possible to schedule a meeting. Understanding your child's work habits at school and monitoring their grades is critical to making sure your child has a successful year at Rees.


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Mrs. Wong or myself anytime.


Have a great week!

Paul Baez, Principal
