Veterans True Heroes - Answer to Wednesday's Challenge

The Veteran’s assembly at Spanish Fork Junior is a much anticipated event for both students and staff alike. Many people are involved weeks in advance to provide such a soul-stirring program.

Becky Provstgaard, organizer of the assembly, said that it takes many to put it all together. Seven years ago, Becky and her siblings attended an Atomic War Veterans’ reunion in Seattle, Washington with their father, Jim Box.  Becky said, “It was so touching to me to see the love and respect these veteran men had for this great Nation.”

Nebo Elementary Students Learning Robotics

Nebo School District elementary students are learning robotics!  This fall, 21 Nebo elementary schools are holding 24 after-school robotic classes before and after school each day of the week. Students in grades fourth through sixth learn the basics of robotics through a hands-on STEM experience. Students learn the engineering cycle of trial, experiment, test, and repeat to acquire computer programming skills. Students actually build mini robots using building models.

"Warm Hearts and Happy Faces"

Rees Elementary students celebrated "Warm Hearts and Happy Faces" to improve breakfast participation. They played games, guessed the number of cereal bites in a glass bottle and enjoyed a delicious breakfast as part of the Universal Breakfast Program (all students eat breakfast for free.)

Rees students ate 272 breakfasts on a single day, up from an average of 200.  A breakfast grant was awarded for the 2014-15 school year, and Nebo School District continued the program without a grant this year.
