American College of Education (ACE) would like to create a Nebo-specific URL to offer your educators tuition discounts degrees and certificate programs.
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. The Nebo Education Foundation functions through generous donations made by individuals and businesses.
Congratulations to the following teachers that continue to inspire the minds of students.
Superintendent Rick Nielsen honored Craig and Deanne Shields on Friday, October 7, at the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce Business Education Partnership celebration.
Deanne accepted the recognition and said, "Craig believes in education and enjoys serving on the Nebo Education Foundation. Craig gives from his heart and not for recognition."
On Thursday, September 22, Springville High band students and band director, Mr. Ben Major, had a huge surprise from Lana Hiskey, Nebo Education Foundation Director—a $10,000 anonymous cash donation to SHS band.
Major said, “All of the money will be spent for band related activities. Most of the funds will be used to purchase pit equipment.”
Principal Blackhurst thanked the Board and Superintendent Nielsen for the opportunity to present. She said, “Mt. Loafer Elementary school is honored and excited to share with you how wonderful it is to be a Grizzly! Mt. Loafer Elementary is in its twenty-first year of academic excellence and most importantly a wonderful culture of student leaders and learners. Tonight, I have brought some of our most amazing, talented and driven students, teachers and parents with me to share how much we love our school. We will first hear from Nelson Barrett.
David Jex, Mapleton Junior, was honored at the BYU vs Toledo football game on Friday, September 30. David Jex teaches health, physical education, and weight training. He is the athletic director at Mapleton Junior and the on-site supervisor and Shadow Mountain. David spent countless hours this summer at Shadow Mountain making camp a positive experience for all 712 Nebo students who attended.
In the month of September 2016, Barnett Elementary kicked off the Leader in Me program. This event was designed to help parents and families learn more about leadership and life skills. The program creates a culture of student empowerment based on the idea that every child can be a leader. The concepts are based from Stephen Covey’s book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”.
“An incredible day at Diamond Fork Jr. High School!” was the reaction of one helper who attended the district-wide Special Education Extravaganza. The day was full of excitement and encouragement for all those in attendance. Under the direction of Jo Edan Parker (special education teacher) and Linda Lewis (former PE teacher), the event was more spectacular than they had anticipated.
