Brenda said, "I am so excited to have received this grant from the Nebo Education Foundation. I can't wait to use it with my kindergartners. We will hatch eggs during our Farm Unit this spring. What a great experience it will be for my students to have a hands-on experience hatching eggs. Thanks again Nebo Education Foundation!"
Bonneville UniServ noted that many students in Utah County schools are struggling. Some live without the basic necessities of food, clothing, and shelter despite the availability of social assistance programs.
Nebo School District and other school districts have joined with Bonneville UniServ, United Way, and community groups to serve our children. Children from low-income families who need glasses, hearing aids, shoes, winter coats or dental needs, can receive these items through Kids Cause Coordinators.
Art City Elementary delighted the Nebo School Board of Education with a PowerPoint showing some of their successes including reading and many fine arts.
