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.
On Wednesday, April 13, 2016, at Spanish Fork High School, hundreds of fourth- and fifth-grade students and their parents gathered for Nebo’s first ever Elementary Keyboarding Championship. Because of their remarkable keyboarding skills, the students were selected to represent their schools in the championship. The excitement in the SFHS Cafeteria was electric!
Bradley Weston's Eagle Scout project will help around 1,000 people in case of an emergency. He developed the idea while he attended the National Junior Honor Society service project at Diamond Fork Junior High. The students were collecting supplies to renew classroom emergency kits.
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.
The Nebo School Board took this opportunity to ask the Youth Board students questions. The students, in turn, discussed their feelings on preparedness for college and careers, the right amount of homework, the use of social media, and the use of technology, specifically one-to-one devices.
Have you heard about Cherry Creek's Leadership Day? One day during the year, leaders from the community are invited to come to Cherry Creek to see what the "Leader in Me" program is all about. From student speeches, flash mob dance performances, classroom tours to school-wide tours, grade-level song perfomances, student greeters and photographers, and student leadership roles, students from every grade level get to show their own form leadership.
Nebo School District’s Hobble Creek Elementary hosted the Elementary Debate Tournament sponsored by the Utah High School Debate coaches Association. One hundred and thirty fifth- and sixth-grade students participated including students from Mapleton, Brockbank, Rees, and Hobble Creek Elementary Schools.
