THE PEAK AWARD CUSTOMER SERVICE PROGRAM
Nebo School District wants to showcase our Positive Energy and Kind employees. PEAK Awards are nominated by patrons and recognized by the Superintendent Staff and Nebo School Board of Education. The award is administered by the Communications and Community Relations Department.
The Nebo Education Foundation is composed of 20 volunteer board members who live in cities serviced by Nebo School District. Board members meet each month to review and award grant requests, consider fund-raising avenues and other items that advance the educational opportunities for Nebo School District students. Many of the donations received are for selected projects, yet a substantial amount is available for the greatest need. Greatest need monies are considered for grants submitted by area schools.
The Nebo Education Foundation has partnered with multiple companies to bring you the best prices on paper and pans. The sale will be Tuesday, October 25 through Thursday, October 27, from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m. at the Summit Center (165 South 700 East, Springville). The sale is a “must go” for educators wanting to take advantage of deep discounts. Goods will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. It will be held in the cafeteria on the east side of the building where there is a lot of parking.
Nebo Education Foundation board members meet each month to review and award grant requests, consider fund-raising avenues, and other items that advance the educational opportunities for Nebo School District students.
