$$$$$$$$ For College?


As part of a new series on College & Career Readiness, Nebo will start offering free monthly webinars on the college planning process for parents and their high school students.  Statistics show that less than 9% of all students who enter a 4 year college both graduate in 4 years and do so without debt.  We believe timely information from industry professionals could dramatically move that needle. 

Please register and you will have access to the recording for 30 days after each webinar.  Click on the following link to register for one or many.

Faculty vs Student Basketball game


Yesterday was our annual faculty vs student basketball game. The intramural team winners play the faculty and staff each year and it is always a pretty tough battle. This year, the age and fatigue of the teachers just couldn't match up with the talented basketball players we have this year. It was a good game but the final score was 43-42 with the students taking the win! 

Teen Living trip to La Caille


In Mrs. Miller's Teen Living class, students were studying dating and etiquette.  Many teens stress a lot about dating and dining out.  Beverly Stone, the head server at La Caille, came first semester and taught a lesson on dining etiquette and extended an invitation to practice applying their new knowledge at one of the most elegant restaurants in Utah, La Caille.  The menu included: Escargot, raspberry sorbet, fresh green salad with shaved parmesan and champagne vinaigrette dressing, grilled chicken with spring vegetables, country dinner rolls, crepes maison for dessert and lemonade to drink.

Students had the opportunity to practice dining etiquette in an environment free of the stress of dating.  We discussed as well the fact that business is often conducted over a meal, including interviews.  Etiquette is free. It includes putting people at ease who may feel unprepared - the three phrases/words used most "Excuse me" "Please" and "Thank you" when applied help any situation.  

This experience has allowed students to feel capable of presenting themselves well in any circumstance.
