OverDrive Summer Read

Nebo School District is gearing up for summer break.  While summer presents an opportunity to relax and enjoy the sushine, we want our students to continue to find ways to learn while away from the classroom.

We have an exciting reading service available through OverDrive.  The OverDrive collection provides free 24/7 access to eBooks and audiobooks.  What better way to engage your student's mind than through reading?

Fourth Grade Field Trip

Fourth-graders had a blast on their field trip a couple of weeks ago.  They went ice skating at Peaks Ice Arena and then attended a show at Bean Museum where they learned about the ecosystems in Utah.  It was a fun way to build character and friendships, as well as review the plants, animals, and environments of Utah.
