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. The Nebo Education Foundation functions through generous donations made by individuals and businesses.
Principal Lisa Muirbrook along with the Art City Elementary student council and the student action team gave a wonderful presentation at the November Nebo Board Meeting.
Student Council President Kooper Lewis addressed the Board first. He spoke about the activities of Student Council and Art City’s “Rad Kids” program. This program is lead by PE teachers Julia Murray and Kathy Anderton. He explained that this program is meant to teach kids safety out in public by discussing basic safety guidelines and role playing dangerous situations.
In just seven days, Springville Junior High students raised $923.68 that they donated to the Light Up Puerto Rico campaign.
“When the hurricane went through I talked with one of our teachers, Mrs. Emily Edman who is from Puerto Rico, about the devastation there,” Principal Ryan McGuire explained. “We felt like this was a good cause to support this year.”
The Nebo Foundation hosted its annual paper and pan sale this past week. The Foundation partners with multiple companies to sell a variety of products at a discounted price. This year’s paper and pan sale was a great success thanks to all who volunteered, donated, and helped spread the word.
The Nebo Foundation is proud to be able to provide grants for our wonderful schools and educators and this sale helps to make that possible. Thanks to all who came!

Nebo School District thanks all our veterans. Children and staff all over Nebo School District honored Veterans in their community. In many of the schools, the students dressed in their best attire and listened to testimonials of service. Some ideas and quotes included: “The land of the free, because of the brave,” “America, the home of the brave,” and "Freedom is not free.”
Thank you to all veterans for your service!
Angela Wilson, a special education/English teacher at Diamond Fork Junior High, is using more tech tools in her classroom. When thinking about going digital, Angela says, "The students tend to respond more with learning tasks online."
Ms. Wilson is developing phonics lessons with the Bill of Rights to increase student reading and comprehension skills. She is using the Hyperdocs technique. This new method employs a Google Doc or Google Website as a learning guide and placeholder for learning exercises.
Jon Winget is a delightfully enthusiastic instructor who has been teaching for 40 years. He wanted his seventh grade Utah History class at Salem Junior High School to get a hands on understanding of how our government works. The United States is a democratic republic which means its citizens elect representatives to represent them. The students in Mr. Winget’s class felt the government was too large and not interested in them. Last May, Mr. Winget asked his class to write our elected officials with issues and concerns that were important to them.
