A highlight for the Nebo School Board of Education is to meet with students from each of the high schools and junior high schools on a quarterly basis. Each Youth Board representative is selected by his/her principal to be a spokesperson for their school.
Nebo’s own Spanish Fork Junior High’s orchestra teacher, Angela Harman, was recognized by the “Teaching Music” magazine in the October 2015 issue.
Chad Criswell writes, “Almost every music education classroom can be enhanced in some way through the use of technology.” He goes on to spotlight Angela’s innovation with technology from iPads and apps to GarageBand software.
Angela said, “I hook the iPad up to GarageBand and use it to keep a beat or play an accompaniment that makes ‘Twinkle’ a lot more fun.”
October is National Principals month. All Nebo schools recognized and celebrated their amazing school leaders. This is just one of the ways schools participated.
Park Elementary’s staff really went all out to surprise and thank their principal, Ryan Kay. He is a huge NASCAR and demolition derby fan.
Adam Gull said, “Ryan does so much for our school, his family and community. He is also the director of one of the finest demolition derbies in Utah in his hometown of Nephi, so the staff decided to put on a little event to celebrate him as our leader.”
