The Thanksgiving holiday is great time to let you know that we appreciate you for helping us to make Nebo a wonderful place to engage, empower, and collaborate to ensure student success. We hope you will be able to share the Thanksgiving holiday among your loved ones as you take a well-deserved break from the valuable work we know you do day-in and day-out. (After school meetings too!) The holiday season can be a hectic time for all of us, but please take a few moments to remember all that you have to be thankful for as you gather for your Thanksgiving celebration this week.
The Nebo Education Foundation board had a record number of grants in November. Here are a few more that received funds to meet the many needs across the district. This Foundation Board functions through generous donations made by individuals and businesses as well as fundraisers where all the money goes to educate students in Nebo School District. Thank you to all those that so generously supported Nebo students through donations.
Congratulations to the following teachers that continue to bless the lives of students.

Nebo’s Title VI Performing Art, Native American Indian, students were involved in fundraising for Navajo elders. The program raised $12,000 selling Navajo rugs at this event. Adopt-a-Native-Elder (ANE) is a good partner to Nebo’s Indian Education program. ANE provides school supplies packed in backpacks and also Christmas gifts for Nebo students.
Springville Junior High 9th Graders, Kate Southern and Austin Ewell, received the Springville Mayor’s Recognition Award at November’s City Council Meeting. Both students are excellent examples in reaching out and making a difference in other’s lives.
Kate was nominated by Dean of Students, Shauna Shepherd, for Kate’s role in establishing a “Bully Box” at SJHS to help address concerns students might have. Kate helped create posters and announcements so students would be aware of the box.
