On April 27, 2011, Maple Mountain High School and Nebo Districts Special Education held the first annual Nebo Superstars Track and Field Day for students in our special needs units around the district. This event provided an opportunity for special needs students to participate in athletic events and to be honored for their abilities and effort. Athletes from Maple Mountain served as buddies and mentors during the events which included 50, 100, 200 and 400 meter races, a 400 meter wheelchair race, long jump, high jump and softball throw.
Utah Highway Patrol Officers Kevin Elmer and Bryce Ivie presented the safety Gold Award to Nebo’s transportation technicians at the Nebo School Board of Education meeting on May 11.
Officer Elmer said, “This is a great opportunity to acknowledge excellence to a group that maintains and keeps the buses safe in Nebo. We inspect every bus in Utah and Wasatch Counties as well as some to the south of us. It is always a pleasure to inspect Nebo’s buses. Martin and his crew do an excellent job on a day-to-day basis.”
Nebo Junior High Art Show is on display at the Covey Center in Provo until May 25. It features 60 pieces of artwork from each of Nebo’s Junior High Schools including Mt. Nebo, Payson, Diamond Fork, Spanish Fork, Mapleton, and Springville Junior High. There are 10 pieces from each school. Go and enjoy the talent from Nebo’s teenage students.
Nebo School District’s sixth-grade string students represented 14 elementary schools in Nebo District.
This third annual event continues to gain momentum. The first year 89 students participated; however, this year 190 students performed. The event was coordinated by district elementary music specialist, Jeri Crosby, and the district's nine, sixth-grade strings instructors.
Also featured in the concert was Springville High’s Folk Ensemble, more commonly known as "Sam's Club" directed by Sam Tsugawa.
On April 21, 2011, Nebo School District held its third quarterly Captains Academy Spring Session on leadership and sportsmanship. The Captain’s Academy is held three times a year. This event was held in the boardroom at Nebo School District and included Captains from each spring sport: baseball, softball, boys’ and girls’ track and field, boys’ soccer, girls’ golf, and boys’ tennis. All Region VIII was invited and all of Nebo District High schools were represented including Springville High, Maple Mountain High, Spanish Fork High, Salem Hills High, and Payson High.
A highlight for the Nebo School Board of Education is meeting with the students representing all the junior high and high schools on a quarterly basis.
The Youth School Board takes turns discussing successes and concerns at each of their respective schools. The students responded that these meetings are beneficial because the students have seen actual changes made by the Nebo School Board as a result of their suggestions.
