Instead of using boom whackers, rhythm sticks and bells to integrate music curriculum in her third-grade class, Pam Roberts chose to use violins. Roberts is in her second year of teaching violin to her third graders at Foothills Elementary. For the performance for family and friends, the students memorized nine songs and each had a speaking part in the program.
This past month, Governor Gary Herbert along with Dave Elkington, CEO and founder of Inside Sales and representatives from Domo and Qualtric, visited Maple Ridge Elementary.

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.
