On Wednesday, September 7, students at Maple Ridge Elementary were privileged to watch two Harlem Globetrotters in action. Hollywood and PeeWee not only demonstrated their amazing abilities on the basketball floor but took the time to teach about responsibility. Many students were selected from the audience to learn a few skills. Teacher, DeAnn Sanders, was also recognized as the Teacher of the Year and given a miniature Statue of Responsibility in her honor.
Congratulations to Doug Lai for answering this week's "Where are we Wednesday?" challenge sponsored by Wiggy Wash.
Riverview Elementary started the school year off with the theme “Making Our Mark, Making It Matter!” The students gathered around outside the flag pole to witness several Spanish Fork Veterans in full uniform playing "To the Colors" on the bugle. The students felt patriotism as the National Anthem was sung, and they recited the Pledge of Allegiance together as a school. What a great welcome to a new great academic school year.
Congratulations to Ashley Mitchell for answering this week’s “Where are we Wednesday?” challenge sponsored by Wiggy Wash.
Please remember that Early Out Day or Collaboration Day is on Monday this year, not Wednesday.
Nebo’s district-wide collaboration day changed to Monday instead of Wednesday beginning this school year. All students will continue to be dismissed 45 minutes early from school on Mondays. Nebo District implemented a highly successful, district-wide collaboration time in 2008. Collaboration time is specifically for teachers to focus on improved student learning and quality instruction.
In July, Nebo School District was well represented at the National Leadership Conference for FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America). Twelve students, from four high schools traveled to San Diego, CA. where they were able to compete in STAR Event competitions, raise awareness and advocate for Family and Consumer Sciences Education, see all of the great city sites, and network with over 8,000 FCCLA members from across the country.
