Nebo School District held a district-wide contest where many talented elementary students competed for the coveted honor of designing the Nebo School District’s Christmas card.
The First Place winner is Rebecca Carter, sixth-grade student from Larsen Elementary in Spanish Fork. Gwen Sorensen is her teacher. Rebecca’s artwork was mailed to over 4,000 Nebo School District employees.
Captains and student leaders from six high schools and seven junior high schools attended the Nebo School District’s Winter Academy. The purposes of the Captains’ Academy are to promote sportsmanship between the schools through the captains and leaders working together at the academy, promote better relations between the students and athletes, develop leadership through the academy activities, and develop relationships with coaches and administrators as they present at each academy.
Maple Mountain FFA gave a gift of love to the Festival of Trees held in Sandy Utah. This year the officers chose the theme of "We Wish You a Rustic Christmas". Two senior boys, Shadoe Holm and Decker Nielson, designed and created the tree completely out of horse shoes. It took 200 horseshoes and 15 hours to complete. The tree was decorated simply by the rest of the officer team with lights and garland. Burlap boxes were designed to enhance the tree.
