Our MNJHS LIA collected a total of 2,231 Santa letters from Barnett Elementary, Taylor Elementary, Wilson Elementary, and Mt Nebo Jr High to deliver to Macys!!! We surpassed our goal of 1500 letters.  Along with all the other LIA in our District a total of about 10,000 letters were submitted.

Macy’s Letters To Santa Campaign donates $1 per letter to Make A Wish Foundation, up to $1 million.  All money raised goes towards helping grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses.

Way to go, MNJHS LIA!

Congratulations Mrs. Keetch, MNJHS Speech Specialist!

Kjirsten Keetch, speech specialist at Mt. Nebo Junior, said of her recent Nebo Education Grant, “Thank you so much for the receipt of this grant that will be so helpful toward making improvements in the speech and language services we offer our students at Mt. Nebo Junior. With the SKILL program, I'll be implementing the strategies to improve comprehension of all types of reading and spoken narratives for students with language impairments. This will also help in areas such as vocabulary, sentence complexity, and comprehension. For me, this means a lot because language impairment is so complex, and if students don't have a solid foundation for the parts and flow of narratives, it is difficult for them to build on other language skills.  The students will be directly benefited from this generous donation.”

Thank you Nebo Education Foundation!
